Rules, Packing List & Directions

Welcome to FloydFest 23~Forever! We love you, and we can’t wait to see you again … now at our NEW home in Floyd County — 5826 Floyd Highway North in Check, Va., to be exact.

Our mission is to be the best music festival experience of our time; to sell a limited quantity of tickets to the highest-quality event experience, bar none, celebrating music, art and life in an intimate, visually stunning environment.

To help achieve this mission, this website contains elaborations on the ticket types and festival logistics needed for you to make the most of your magical-and-musical mountain experience.

Listed below are the basic rules of FloydFest 23~Forever. They are few and simple, yet extremely important to us and to the overall FloydFest experience. Help us police their observance, so we can make this more than just a festival — let’s make this our FloydFest.

FloydFest 23~Forever RULES
