LOCKN’ Festival was born in 2013, and will celebrate its seventh year in 2019. Located in Central Virginia, amidst the natural beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Arrington is halfway between Charlottesville and Lynchburg and close to Washington, DC and Richmond.
We’re a group of dedicated music fans who began this journey in 2013, aspiring to provide the ultimate atmosphere for live music and community to flourish.
Over the last few years, LOCKN’ ‘Lumni have savored the sounds of artists such as: Tom Petty, Robert Plant, Phish, Carlos Santana, My Morning Jacket, Ween, Wilco, Zac Brown, Willie Nelson, Phil Lesh and more. We’ve facilitated unexpected but inspiring collaborations like The Doobie Incident featuring The String Cheese Incident and The Doobie Brothers, and Widespread Panic and Jimmy Cliff.
We also recognize that an optimal festival experience extends far beyond the stage. It should be a blend of world-class music, local vendors, and community engagement. Our goal is not only to offer fans mind-blowing lineups but also to present the best in local and regional cuisine, craft beers and wines, and opportunities to explore our picturesque setting. We take pride in our local organizations and community leaders. We’re eager to support all the good folks who have supported us over the years.
It’s been a collective journey and we sincerely hope LOCKN’ has become, or will become, as much a part of your life as it is ours.
