FESTY Adds Socially Distanced Shows With Andrew Marlin & Rising Appalachia


FESTY, the Virginia-bred music festival-turned destination entertainment experience is pleased to announce the addition of Andrew Marlin and Rising Appalachia to its 2021 event season. The accomplished mandolinist (one half of celebrated North Carolina duo Watchouse; formerly known as Mandolin Orange) and the global-folk outfit led by sisters Leah Song and Chloe Smith will join the likes of Molly Tuttle, Martin Sexton, and many more fan-sourced performance artists at FESTY’s satellite venues in Charlottesville, Asheville, and Charleston this summer. A lineup of confirmed events is below, with additional shows to be announced in the coming weeks.

With sustainability at the forefront, FESTY has introduced a “fan first” model that allows live music enthusiasts to participate directly in lineup curation by voting on which bands they’d like to see on its stages. With over 150 shows on the horizon, FESTY will bring its unparalleled entertainment and hospitality experience to three of the mid-atlantic’s top music destinations in Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina through the fall. Partnering with local venues in each market, each night of FESTY will take place under a sunset-coated backdrop in some of the region’s most pristine outdoor destinations, and come complete with VIP-inspired amenities like preferred viewing in all pods and a digitized food servicing platform that allows patrons to order dinner and refreshments directly to their seats.
