We are just over a month away from one of the summer’s top music events anywhere in the country, The Lockn' Festival.  This star-studded event will take place August 24-27 on Infinity Downs Farm located near Arrington, VA.  Since its first event in 2013, Lockn' Festival has continuously raised the bar with its top-notch performances from the biggest bands in the rock n’ roll and jam band scenes.  With no overlapping sets and a focus on musical collaborations between everyone’s favorite performers, promoter Peter Shapiro has virtually guaranteed that the music hungry crowd will take in performances that no other festival can deliver.

This year, The String Cheese Incident and Umphrey’s McGee take over Thursday night, with each playing two sets.  Friday night will feature a rare headlining performance of the reunion of Phil Lesh and Bob Weir with the Terrapin Family Band.  Other Friday acts include Gov’t Mule, Brandi Carlile, Jim James, and Blackberry Smoke.  On Saturday night, southern rockers Widespread Panic will headline, along with John Fogerty and John Butler Trio.  Lockn' will close out Sunday night with some epic collaborations.  Phil Lesh and Friends will perform with Moe in an act they will call phil.moe, and The Avett Brothers will be closing out the festival with The Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir.  Each night late night acts such as The Disco Biscuits and Joe Russo’s Almost Dead will be playing into the morning.  Throughout the weekend, other acts such as The Marcus King Band, Tauk, Antibalas, and Dirty Dozen Brass Band will light up the Blue Ridge Bowl during the day before the nighttime festivities.

Lockn' Festival will also offer lots of great local and regional cuisine, as well as craft beers and wines.  Lots of family friendly activities will be on site such as an extensive arts and crafts village, yoga, and WaternLOCK’N (a short ride to a swimming hole on the Tye River courtesy of Trinity Episcopal Church). 
Lockn' will doubtlessly serve up once in a lifetime experiences with the top musicians in the business.  This is not a festival to miss.  Tickets are on sale right now for $299.  Grab yours while you can.
