The third annual Lynchburg Music Fest returns to Music Hollow Thursday through Saturday for three days of music, camping and rodeo fun.
The Fest is a culmination of songwriter competitions “Shine on Series” and “Songcrafters Series” in several neighboring cities leading up to the main event.
The artist lineup includes: Cody Johnson, Hardy, Jameson Rodgers, Parmalee, Walker Hayes, Ernest, Tyler Brayden, Joe and Martina, Resurrection a Journey Tribute Band, Lucas Hoge, Cody Purvis, Lee Gibson, Matt Dillon, Vending Machine Bandits, Sarah Pearson, Logan Wheat, Luke Ledbetter, Kristie Kraus, Brooke Lynn, Bryce Reeg, Zach Davis, Wingate, Manny Alexander, Salemtown, Andy and Lee Huffer, Aaron Tanner, Asher Cataldo, Carrie Welling and Southern Moss.
“We are beyond excited about the amazing talent involved in this year’s Lynchburg Music Fest,” said Jonny Hill, founder and owner of the festival. “We’re proud to showcase these artists and everything Southern Tennessee has to offer.
The Jack Daniel’s Club Select tent includes an acoustic stage. There will be many activities, sponsors and vendors to add to the entire experience.
This year’s festival includes an after-party stage each night starting at 10:30 p.m. and continuing until midnight. Playing on the after-party stage will be DJ Cliffy D. and Matt Dillon.
“Going into year three of the event, we couldn’t be more excited and thankful for the opportunity and support,” Hill said. “This is going to be the biggest year yet, and we hope to see everyone who can make it out and enjoy the experience.”
Lynchburg Music Fest was born out of Hill’s vision of bringing together both top talent and up-and-coming musicians in the area for a true celebration of music, whiskey and small-town America.
Past Music Fests
The inaugural Lynchburg Music Fest in 2019 was the first music festival of its caliber ever in the known history of nostalgic and historic Lynchburg.
With Jack Daniel’s as the premier partner in its first year, Lynchburg Music Fest has expanded to partner with multiple upcoming and established distilleries in the region and more than 50 local vendors with plans to continue to forge new relationships with local and regional businesses each year.
Year two took place in October of 2020 in Music Hollow. The second annual Lynchburg Music Fest was three days of music and camping featuring performances by Justin Moore, Kip Moore, Josh Turner, Riley Green, Tyler Farr, Travis Denning, Danielle Bradbery and many more.
New this year, the Fest will feature the Lynchburg Music Fest Rodeo on Saturday to give attendees a lot more added value and activities to do on top of the music.
The Ranch Rodeo, brought by ZK Ranches, will feature four-man teams competing for a $10,000 purse. This event starts Saturday around noon and is included in all weekend Lynchburg Music Fest passes. Cost for those only attending the Ranch Rodeo is $15.
