The home of Jack Daniels welcomes the return of the second-annual Lynchburg Music Fest – the first event of its kind in this historically dry county. With special thanks to official sponsors Miller Lite, White Claw, and Craig and Wheeler Realty and Auction, the Fest has expanded to three days of music and camping in the beautiful Music Hollow Friday, Oct. 2 - Sunday, Oct. 4. Announced today, Josh Turner joins the lineup as Friday’s headliner alongside previously announced Sunday headliner Kip Moore.

The perfect getaway for music and whiskey aficionados alike, Lynchburg Music Fest features dozens of legendary and up-and-coming country/bluegrass artists – a true songwriters destination. The full 2020 artist lineup, including the Saturday headliner, will be revealed in August. New this year, the Fest will feature a “Whiskey Row” and “Wine Circle,” offering concertgoers tastes from several distilleries and wineries in the surrounding areas; a song crafters tent; a “Best of Fest” award with whiskey, wine, and food categories; and many local vendors for patrons to enjoy. Tickets are on sale now, including Weekend General Admission, VIP options, and camping-only passes, available at Social distancing and sanitization measures will be in place onsite, outlined below and on the festival website.


“More than just the sum of its parts – music, whiskey, and camping – Lynchburg Music Fest has a unique element to differentiate it from ‘just another’ festival. It has a strong songwriter element to add to the experience, consisting of both up-and-coming and award-winning writers!” said Jonny Hill, owner of Igniter Productions and Lynchburg Music Fest. “We are grateful this one-of-a-kind event continues to grow and can’t wait to see where the road leads from here.”


Lynchburg Music Fest was born out of owner Jonny Hill’s vision of bringing together both top talent and up-and-coming musicians in the area for a true celebration of music, whiskey, and small town America. The Fest is a culmination of songwriter competitions “shine on series” and “song crafters series” in several neighboring cities leading up the main event. The inaugural Lynchburg Music Fest in 2019 was the first music festival of this caliber ever in the known history of nostalgic and historic Lynchburg, Tenn. With Jack Daniels as the premier partner its first year, Lynchburg Music Fest has expanded to partner with multiple upcoming and established distilleries in the region and more than 50 local vendors, with plans to continue to forge new relationships with local and regional businesses each year.
