The beloved annual music festival known as The Festy Experience doesn’t get underway until October, but those who can’t wait can get an early taste can do this Saturday, August 25th as the Devils Backbone Brewing Company hosts the Virginia Craft Brewers Fest, where four Virginia bands will play while music-lovers and beer aficionados sample craft beers from over 30 brewers.

The event runs from 2pm-8pm; local country-flavored 80’s cover band Love Canon will play at 2:15, bluegrass jammers the Downbeat Project are on at 3:45; a group known as the Founding Fathers (featuring Chris Pandolfi and Andy Falco of the Infamous Stringdusters, co-founders of the Festy Experience) will play at 5:15 and Richmond’s No B.S.! Brass Band will wrap up the evening beginning at 6:45.

VIP passes are already sold out, but general admission tickets and “tasting package” passes are still available, and camping passes will be available on the day of the event. The current predicted weather is 84° and slightly cloudy, but the organizers have set a rain date for August 26th.
