The 19th installment of FloydFest is confirmed for July 24 – 28 in Floyd, Virginia. Festival organizers have outdone themselves with an impressive lineup this year including Jam Session favorites the String Cheese Incident, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Leftover Salmon, The Motet, Kyle Hollingsworth Band, and new addition Kacey Musgraves. Our boys Roots of Creation also have an impressive festival lineup with their name on it — the inaugural BeachLife Festival happening in Los Angeles on Redondo Beach the weekend of May 4th. BeachLife will feature headliners Bob Weir and Wolf Brothers, Brian Wilson, Willie Nelson and Family, Ziggy Marley, Grace Potter and more. Get all the details and tunes on this week’s Jam Session!
