Camp Blue Ridge in Mountain City, Georgia is hosting a three-day music festival headlined by Cold War Kids and Hey Rosetta! September 18-20.
The inaugural Campfest is being organized by the same team that put together last year’s Campfire Outdoor Adventure & Music Festival at Camp Lavi in Lakewood, Pennsylvania.
Langhorne Slim, The Whigs, Margo and the Pricetags, Alanna Royale and more bands to be announced will be playing the festival, which in addition to live music will include a host of traditional summer camp activities.
According to a Campfest news release:
“By embracing the summer camp attitude of making new friends, connecting with nature and being exposed to arts and recreation, guests have the opportunity to escape from their daily lives and reconnect with the joy and possibilities of childhood. Campers relax, compete, interact, and leave re-energized basking in the glow of new friends and memories.”
“Campers can win points all weekend for doing absolutely anything and be crowned king and queen of Campfest by: rock climbing, best zip line scream, 5K, best kickball costume, relays and obstacles, tennis, not-so-5k, low ropes course, hiking, high diving, blob bounce, and having an awesome time amongst other ‘shenanigans.’ Camp Blue Ridge is a fully equipped summer camp that allows for all the same activities attendees enjoyed as children as well as fresh and creative ones.”
