Floydfest in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and just off the Blue Ridge Parkway has formally announced their 2022 lineup, and it’s a doozy. Not exclusively a country or roots festival, they consider themselves more a “world” festival, but they always include a healthy dose of cool country and Americana bands.
As part of the Turnpike Troubadours reunion tour, the Oklahoma-based band will be making an appearance at the 5-day festival being held from July 27th to the 31st. They will be one of the headliners along with soul revivalists Lake Street Dive. Don’t be surprised if you see other Turnpike Troubadours festival appearances in 2022 as well, as the band looks to not just reunite with fans after their recent hiatus, but make new ones by venturing farther afield than their Texoma stomping grounds.
Other 2022 Floydfest performers include Sierra Ferrell, who was featured at #4 on Saving Country Music’s Best Live Performers list for 2021. You also have the always-entertaining American Aquarium, the lightning fingers of Trampled by Turtles, Morgan Wade who is swelling in popularity at the moment, Old Crow Medicine Show, Marcus King, Melissa Ethridge, Amythyst Kiah, a mess of cool bluegrass bands, and many more.
Also performing will be 49 Winchester, who won Floydfest’s “On The Rise” contest in 2021, and are guaranteed to continue to be on the rise in 2022 after they signed with New West Records last year.
