We got hit up with a flyer and press release for an event called the Blue Ridge Rock Festival which is taking place on September 9th in Lynchburg, Virginia.
We first heard about it because the homies Moonshine Bandits will be one of the acts performing. Then, we soon found out that not only will (hed)p.e. be playing there, but so will MNE’s own TWIZTID and Blaze Ya Dead Homie!
The festival will be headlined by Scott Stapp of CREED, and feature performances by Everlast, Drowning Pool, DOPE, Sick Puppies, and many others! Check out the flyer below:
