Tickets for the festival are on-sale now:
The festival takes place in Bristol, on the Tennessee/Virginia state line, and they always have a wide range of artists from a range of genres like indie rock and cowpunk to Piedmont blues and traditional bluegrass.
This will mark the 22nd annual year of the festival, and will take place September 8th through the 10th.
It was first established to honor the legacy of producer Ralph Peer’s 1927 Bristol Sessions, which gave us the first recordings of the Carter Family and Jimmie Rodgers and essentially established country as we know it today.
The rest, as they say, is some pretty damn incredible country music history, so make sure you check it out if you’re in the the area or want to take a trip to the place that gave us such an incredible genre of music.
