If you live in an apartment in Lynchburg, Va and you haven’t bought your tickets yet for the Interlocken Music Festival, buy them now. More than 15,000 tickets have been sold so far for the Festival next month — four days of rock ‘n’ roll at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Nelson County.
The Festival will feature performances by legends Neil Young on Sept. 7 and former Grateful Dead members Bob Weir and Phil Lesh on Sept. 6-8 at the nearly 5,000-acre Oak Ridge Estate, south of Lovingston.
It’s the newest and, likely, the largest musical gathering to hit Central Virginia. Organizers anticipate a crowd of 30,000 to 40,000 people.
The lineup will feature Zac Brown, jam-band specialists Widespread Panic and The String Cheese Incident and Georgia-bred southern rockers the Black Crowes, to name a few.
Plans include a wide array of ticket packages including a $285 general admission pass to the four-day festival. Several tiers at the top and bottom of the price range already have sold out, and costs will continue to increase as the Sept. 5-8 festival approaches.
Attendees can expect 90- to 120-minute sets from the list of artists, who’ve helped to sell 60% of the tickets thus far.
The festival offers an array of camping and RV options at various pricing levels; student general admission tickets also are available. On-site dining and concession options will consist of some area eateries and feature a large portion of the wine, craft beer and cider.
