“Appaloosa is DC’s (only) Roots Music Festival – now going in to our second year.
We host our festival in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, in Front Royal, VA on Labor Day Weekend (September 3-4), and have 42 bands on 5 stages, good food, beer, wine – and community. The adults have fun (our headliners include Scythian, The Black Lillies, Mipso, Humming House, Penny & Sparrow, and Socks in the Frying Pan) as do the kids, with children under 13 coming free, and workshops by headliners, camping, and horseback riding. Also – we have late-night jams, discounts for active duty military and veterans, and 10% goes to charity. As for sponsors – we have The Hamilton Live sponsoring our main stage, as well as Starr Hill Brewery, Bold Rock Hard Cider, and WAMU Bluegrass Country, among others. We like to consider the community we’re building, as “Music Among Friends.”
