Update: On 9/4, Campfest’s Facebook page announced the cancellation of this year’s event because of circumstances beyond their control.
I’m impressed with the Campfest lineup for Sept. 18-20 at Camp Blue Ridge: Cold War Kids, Hey Rosetta!, Langhorne Slim, Family and Friends, The Whigs, Roadkill Ghost Choir, Hardy & The Hardknocks (check out our post from last week), Alanna Royale, and Margo and The Pricetags. There will also be a beachfront dance party with Brushfire Stankgrass, special performances by New Breed Brass Band, and campfire sets by City Mouse, Nikki Talley, Christopher Paul Stelling, and Wrenn.
The site includes a beach, a pool, cabins, camping, paddleboarding, and various fun activities (Camp Blue Ridge generally operates as a camp for kids, after all). The camp is in Mountain City, Ga., in the extreme northeast corner of the state (about 5 hours from Savannah, I guess).
Tickets are $89 for general admission for the three days. General admission plus camping is just $175. Cabin beds start at $150 per person. Click here for more info on food and accommodations.
We’ve taken a lot of pics of some of these bands — you’ll find shots of some of them after the jump:
