Yonderville is back! After an extremely successful inaugural year in 2017, the music and arts festival will return to Virginia this summer from July 5th-8th!
The story goes that a secret portal was discovered in the town of Rixeyville among the Blue Ridge Mountains. Sugarcube Productions curated a team of musicians, artists, and guests to explore a mysterious source of energy awaiting in the curious world beyond. What they found, was Yonderville.
Boasting an impressive lineup that celebrates both thundering bass producers and exceptional jam bands, the festival is slated to host headliners Shlump, Shadow People, Litz (two sets), and Broccoli Samurai. Rounding out the undercard are some truly must-see producers and bands like Of The Trees, Big Chocolate, Chee, Daily Bread, and one of my favorites, Of Tomorrow. Based on the lineup alone, it’s clear that fans of multiple genres will be extremely happy for with what Yonderville has in store.
Accompanying the music will be live painters, art installations, and themed festival grounds for attendees to wander and explore. There will also be wine and beer gardens sponsored by local Mountain Run Winery and Far Gohn Brewery, respectively.
Yonderville’s beginnings lie within founder Max Stone’s search for solace after the passing of one of his dear friends.
“We’re personifying our own real life experiences into the aspect of the events theme with the story developing over time. The discovery of the portal was actually me discovering the underground rave scene counterculture in 2010. The mysterious source of energy found is actually the love that my team and I developed for live music.”
Because of this, Stone sees the festival as a way for him to give back to the community that helped him overcome his grief.
“We want this festival to inspire people to overcome tragedy or hardship, and to make a positive impact on society in the process.”
