Dreaming Creek Main Stage
The Dreaming Creek Main Stage is the ‘signature stage’ at FloydFest. Locally designed and constructed in partnership with Dreaming Creek Timber Frame, there is no other way or place to see a live outdoor performance after experiencing the beauty of the natural tree-lit backdrop behind and of framing this one-of-a-kind timber framed main stage.
Streamline Stage at Hill Holler
The Streamline Stage at Hill Holler rivals the Dreaming Creek stage as a ‘fan favorite’ and sits at the base of a natural amphitheater with hillside seating and an overlooking ”craft beer loft.” Boasting its own unique woodsy aesthetic, the Hill Holler stage hosts headlining acts throughout the day and well into the night.
The Speakeasy Stage is FloydFest’s ‘wild hair’; this huge covered tent with its funky painted wood floor has been home to everything from clogging workshops to late night get-down stay-downs with FloydFest’s favorite bands, to dare devilish acts of magic, sword-swallowing and burlesque! The Speakeasy Stage will host more musical performances with an even bigger dance space this year and is guaranteed to get you moving and grooving!
Healing Arts Village
The Healing Arts Village provides an opportunity to create and maintain a body-mind balance amidst the full-throttle intensity of a 5-day music festival. Showcasing a smorgasboard of various healing tools and techniques, with hands-on demonstrations and workshops, plus one-on-one appointment opportunities with trained professionals.
does more than replicate the look of an old Appalachian-style porch, it is one! Recycled from a ‘local deconstruction,’ the Workshop Porch is hosted by Ferrum College and offers an intimate listening environment as well as opportunity to engage with musicians as they share songs, stories and techniques in a hosted, workshop-style environment.
Pink Floyd Garden Stage
The Pink Floyd Beer and Wine Garden Stage is the hot-seat of fun and fabulous! What’s not to love? Relax at a table under the shade of huge beautiful oak trees with a cold craft beer or freshly-mixed sangria and catch your favorite newly-discovered band on this lively, funky stage, pieced together over a decade ago from the discarded steel and timber of the roller-coaster from the long-gone Lakeside amusement park in Salem, VA. Living history!
The Children’s Universe (CU) Forever Young Stage offers delightful respite from the hustle and hum of elsewhere on campus, and features acts ranging from grown-ups playing catchy kid tunes to very talented kids playing with adult-level aptitude. Plus, catch your favorite young ‘uns at daily open mic sessions!
At FloydFest, kids are never an afterthought- they are a centerpiece. The aptly-named Children’s Universe encompasses several acres of prime real estate in FloydFest’s main field area, such that kids can engage in a Taekwondo class, a tetherball match, or debut an act during the kids’ Open Mic, and parent’s aren’t missing their favorite set on the Dreaming Creek Main Stage.
