The Festy Experience has announced its initial lineup with headliners Greensky Bluegrass (Friday), Gillian Welch, Sam Bush Band (Saturday) and Railroad Earth (Sunday). The ninth edition of the gathering will return to Infinity Downs in Arrington, VA from October 5th through 7th.
Other acts on the bill include Della Mae, Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder, Nick Forster’s “Almost ETown”, Fruition, Carbon Leaf, Rubblebucket, Sons Of Bill, Bonnie Paine, and Hackensaw Boys.
This year will mark the first installment of the Festy Experience without The Infamous Sitringdusters, who helped found the Virginia festival in 2010. The group, which headlined the first eight Festy Experiences, recently launched their own record label and picked up a Grammy for their 2017 album Laws of Gravity.
Tickets for the 2018 Festy Experience are now on sale.
