The Lumineers will be one of the headlining acts at FloydFest 12.
Monday, April 22, 2013
FloydFest has finalized its live music lineup and thrown in a couple of new twists.
Headliners include acts new to the festival, such as Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, The Lumineers, John Butler Trio, Gogol Bordello and Blitzen Trapper, along with returning favorites Old Crow Medicine Show, Brandi Carlile, Yonder Mountain String Band, Railroad Earth and Hot Tuna.
Acts that are farther down the bill bring plenty of energy, as well. Larry and His Flask, Bright Light Social Hour and last year’s Under the Radar Contest winner Megan Jean and the KFB are included.
For the first time, there will be an emphasis on DJ music, with what the festival is calling the “Flower of Life DJ Experience.” Atropolis, Atomic Reactor and Gigamesh are among the acts on a new stage, the Flower of Life stage.
Students from the Music Lab at Jefferson Center — Gabe Morales Trio, Bukuru Celestin, The In Crowd and Jayna Brown — will be part of the action at the youth stage, along with perennial performers The Community High Performance Band.
A second folklife stage has been added, and there is even a performance space in the Delta parking lot.
The 12th version of the festival in Patrick and Floyd counties is scheduled for July 25-28. Get more information at floydfest.com.
