The organizer of the Blue Ridge Rock Competition and different upcoming music occasions provides a preview of what followers can count on
ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) – Rock fans can expect a blast on September 9th when the Blue Ridge Rock Festival kicks off.
Purpose Driven Events organizer Jon Slye says the festival took several years to complete with the goal of bringing the ultimate music to fans.
“We are basically fan-focused, not monetary. This transparency, this mindset, controlling the prices and being there for the fans every step of the way has developed like wildfire and has really received a passionate response from the rock community, ”says Slye.
And the festival doesn’t just present the musicians on stage.
There will be a varied entertainment program.
“I spoke to someone on site who wasn’t into rock at all and when they realized there was going to be a full circus sideshow that was coming to the event and when they realized it was a club experience Ludicris and T- Pain and Little John and Red Run from Run DMC, they say, wow, I kind of want to go, this is going to be exciting! ”Slye says.
If you’re not into rock, how about a country? The Blue Ridge Amphitheater will host the Blue Ridge Country Music
Festival in October. Tickets for this show are still available.
“We have Chris Young, we have Justin Moore, Chase Owen, Darius Rucker, we have Dustin Lynch. We have Toby Keith, who is one of the top five selling country artists of all time, ”says Slye.
And of course, with music-loving crowds come concerns about COVID-19. Slye says they don’t need any vaccinations.
However, the organizers are taking a lot of safety precautions for the performers and those enjoying the show.
“We will make good progress. We have enough land where people can distance themselves socially if they want. It’s outside. We’ve increased the sanitation, ”says Slye.
