Jam Central Station 08.17.13: FloydFest 12
Posted by Jeff Modzelewski on 08.17.2013
A laid back festival in beautiful Virginia. What could be better?
Hey everyone, thanks for hanging out. Sorry I had to miss last week, lots going on, didn't get some things done that I needed to, and it happens. Hopefully it won't happen again for awhile. Anyways, I'm finally getting out my FloydFest review. It was a great, weekend, so I hope you enjoy!
After leaving my house at about 4 in the morning (love those early morning trips to a festival), we arrived at the lot a little after 11. Getting into the main parking lot was not a problem, and we were parked by about 11:30. Then the fun began. Due to the way the festival was set up, we had to haul our stuff to a "gear check" area where it was shuttled to the site, and then hop a school bus to get ourselves to the site. Sounds easy, right? We weren't in the site until after 5 in the afternoon, missing the early bands. For a festival like Bonnaroo, I can forgive hours of waiting to get in. For a festival that had maybe 12,000 tickets sold and had a good portion of folks not arriving until the next day, there was no excuse for this type of line. It was a screw up of the highest degree, and left a pretty crappy taste in my mouth for the beginning of the festival.
After a sweaty trip to camp and a free shower (major points for that) I headed out to check out the venue. FloydFest is in a beautiful area, surrounded by woods and mountains. We staked out a wooded camping spot in an area that not many folks realized was a camping option, so we weren't packed in. We were behind the second stage, which meant I could hear some great late-night music right from my tent. After getting things in order, it was on to the music!
I didn't catch too much music on Friday, but it started out with a furious set by Gogol Bordello. As always, they were extremely high energy and interactive with the crowd. They did a great job mixing in new songs with the rest of their catalog. Pure Vida Conspiracy came out immediately before the festival, so the band didn't rely too heavily on the album, but they did take a few tunes off of it. Songs like "Wanderlust King," "Break the Spell," and "Immigraniada" were obvious crowd favorites, and newer songs like "The Other Side of the Rainbow" and "Lost Innocent World" fit in very well with the rest of their set. They closed out their main set with an extended version of "Start Wearing Purple," and I think the crowd would've been satisfied if the band left it at that. However, they came out for a three song encore, closing with "Undestructable." First set of the weekend and an obvious highlight.

The Lumineers were the main stage headliners on Thursday. These guys have built up a great mainstream following in a very short period of time. Their extremely successful debut album got them a headliner spot for this festival and high billing on many other fests. They put on a very solid set, playing their entire album including a couple of good covers. They had a couple of issues, primarily that it was difficult to hear Neyla on vocals, but that could've been a reflection of playing such a large stage. The main concern, however, is that they simply didn't have the material for the 2 hour slot that they were given. I don't know if they started on time, but they ended 40 minutes early without an encore. While I understand that the popularity of the band meant that they needed to be given high billing, I also think that the festival and the band needed to be on the same page. Their album is under 40 minutes, the time slot that they were given was 3 times that. Something had to give, and it's obvious that the band and the festival were not on the same page.
I had been up since 4 in the morning with a very busy and very stressful day, so I didn't catch very much of Railroad Earth. It didn't help that, since The Lumineers ended so early, there was a big gap between bands. I decided to listen to the set from my tent, which was a mistake because I promptly fell asleep despite the loud music. I needed that though, so no complaints there.
Friday was a huge day for me. The day had some very good music, highlighted by the John Butler Trio, the band I was most looking forward to seeing at FloydFest. On top of that were some great bands that I hadn't seen before, The Infamous Stringdusters, and plenty to do around the campgrounds.
I noticed on Thursday that it felt like there were a lot of people at the venue, and by Friday it seemed pretty packed. There were people all over the vendor area, the camping areas were almost all very tight, and the stages definitely felt like this was a major festival. Despite FloydFest having a reputation of being a smaller festival, the crowd and the energy where very high, and they provided as many if not more vendors and things to do than most festivals.
The first show I saw on Friday was John Butler on the Workshop stage, a small stage meant for more intimate performances and storytelling. Butler performed 5 amazing songs, sang a song with his wife, and even joked around a little bit with his kids. His version of "Peaches and Cream" was an obvious highlight, and he even did a new song. It was so packed that I had a hard time hearing the small sound system, but luckily there were plenty of videos available after the weekend. If I return to FloydFest in the future, I'm going to make sure to pick one or two of these shows and get as close as possible.
From there I went to catch Rising Appalachia on the second stage. This group is fronted by sisters Leah and Chloe Smith, and have a completely unique blend of folk/Appalachian music and New Orleans soul. They pull off the combination amazingly well, and they're extremely open about their social and political leanings. They had the crowd singing along at parts and even brought out a curtain dancer (I think that's the term) for a few songs. Lots of great songs including "Way Down South" and "St. James Infirmary." My personal favorite for this set was a powerful version of "Swoon" which they played near the end of their set. This band played a total of 4 sets over the weekend, including two sets on this stage, so I was happy to have multiple opportunities to catch such a great band.
Despite plans, I only caught a bit of The Infamous Stringdusters. All of the walking definitely has an effect, since the festival is located in the mountains and there's a lot of up and down. Not as much as folks have had to deal with at other festivals, but it got to me after a bit. They did a great cover of "Up On Cripple Creek" which was of course a crowd favorite. The stage was packed for their set with nearly as many people as The Lumineers had for their Friday headlining set. FloydFest has a very different feel from many of the modern jam-band festivals, so it was great to see a band like The Infamous Stringdusters get so much respect from tried-and-true bluegrass fans. It's hard sometimes for me to judge the popularity of bands like The Infamous Stringdusters outside of the jam band/jamgrass circles, but they obviously have a lot of respect from more traditional bluegrass fans as well. It's great to see the older generation mixing with the newer.
The John Butler Trio took the stage next for their Friday headliner set. I talk a lot about why I go to shows and the joy of seeing a nearly perfect set. Without a doubt, this was one of those sets. From the opening notes through the entire 2 hour show, the set was perfectly performed, amazingly spaced out and put together, powerful, emotional, and a lot of fun. I'm not one to dance or yell along with the crowd, but it was impossible not to get caught up with the energy of this set. Add onto that the fact that the John Butler Trio are all amazing musicians with a great repertoire of songs, and you've got everything set for a phenomenal show. The Trio went above and beyond with this one.
The band opened with "Revolution," a song that set the tone for the show. There was a definite focus on the power that the people in the crowd had, the positive energy, and using that for good. That moved directly into "Used To Get High," and then into "Don't Wanna See Your Face." After two more serious songs it was a good time for something with a little less weight, and "Don't Wanna See Your Face" was a great song just to dance to. They moved right from that into another heavy song with "Ragged Mile," with a great deep pounding drum riff. Anyone would obviously be impressed by Butler's guitar work, but I was impressed throughout the night by the rest of the band. In order to hang with Butler on stage, you obviously have to be a first-class musician, and Butler's Trio is without a doubt top-notch.
The band kept up their energy with "Mystery Man" and "Treat Yo Mama," a pair of staples for the trio. From there the band left the stage and let Butler take over with an impressive version of "Ocean," that lasted well over 10 minutes, moving through a few different styles before the epic climax. Butler plays this at nearly every show he does, and with good reason. It's a great way to give the rest of the trio a break, and it shows his amazing skills. The band came back for a fun and upbeat version of "Better Than," bringing back the positive message of looking on the bright side of life, and followed that up with a percussion-heavy version of "Devil Running."
Butler brought the band back to the themes of unity, community, and love with the closing portion of the show. "One Way Road" has a great energy and a little bit of a start/stop feel to it, and the band pulled it off perfectly. It's a solid rock song, and it just shows how this is a solid rock and roll band. They closed the main set out by bringing out Butler's young son to help out on a percussion shaker for "Zebra" in one of the most adorable things I've seen on stage. The band also had the whole crowd singing along with the song, making it a true collaborative experience. The encore started out with "Close To You" before closing out with "Funky Tonight." Between the two the band continued to have the crowd jumping and moving and singing along.
It's hard to explain exactly what was so great about this show, but the fact is that it fit the crowd, the night, and what I was looking for perfectly. Between the talent, the great songwriting, the crowd interaction, and the overall message, it was an almost perfect front to back show. i could've done with another hour personally, but that is literally my only complaint. This show is the reason I go to see so much live music. You never know when you're going to see something like this, and I'm thrilled I was there.
After John Butler I ended up hanging out with some folks that I met at the show (I had lost my group), catching a little bit of Citizen Cope and an impromptu unplugged bluegrass jam on the Workshop stage with about 7 other people. I'm not sure if the folks jamming were performers at the festival, fans, or some mixture of both, but it was a lot of fun. It started raining around 1 in the morning and unfortunately didn't let up, so I took that as my cue to head to bed for the night.
The rain continued through the night, making some of the main paths an untraversable mess and the stage areas soggy. Unfortunately it made it very difficult to get to many of the vendors, since most of them were on the lined up right against a massive mud pit. Luckily I was still able to use Saturday to catch some great music including some bands that I haven't seen before. Delta Rae opened the day for me. This diverse Appalachian band put together a solid set, including a very powerful cover of Fleetwood Mac's "The Chain." They had plenty of variety and kept the crowd entertained despite difficult conditions. After that I hit folk cellist Ben Solee. He was very hard to define, moving between a more traditional folk sound into music that sounded more like rock and modern indie music. He was as much of a poet as he was a musician, but overall very talented and entertaining.
I had planned on catching a second set of The Infamous Stringdusters but decided that I wasn't really in the mood to continue slogging through the mud. Instead I hung out at the second stage for another set of Rising Appalachia. They again sounded very good and had their curtain acrobatics going on, but it was frustrating that they played so many songs that they had played the day before. I know that the band had 4 sets throughout the weekend, so obviously there were bound to be repeats. But they only had 2 big stage sets (coupled with a pair of small-stage more acoustic sets), and there was no reason that they would repeat more than half of their songs for the big stage. They still sounded great, but the band has plenty of material and I would've prefered hearing more of it.
The rain picked up again so I did my best to get some shelter. Luckily it let up by the time The Devil Makes Three took the stage. They were another band that I hadn't seen live before, and yet another band that I was very impressed with. I didn't recognize many of their songs (and I didn't have my notebook with me to take notes due to the rain), but I risked falling in the mud in order to get off my ass and dance to the bluegrass. I stayed for the whole set before slogging through the mud to catch the second half of Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes. They had a massive crowd for their show, and their music fit the crowd and energy very well. Lots of interaction going on. With all of the members of the band sometimes their music gets to be a little jumbled for me, but their songwriting and stage presence is absolutely solid. A very good set by these guys.
I had planned on catching Yonder Mountain String Band, but the late night on Friday, the rain keeping me up, and the sheer effort of moving up and down the hills in the venue had worn me out. I caught about their first 3 songs before heading back to my tent. Again, I planned on listening from my tent and, again I was thwarted by sleep.
Sunday was a frustrating day for a variety of reasons. Our original plan was to stick around through Old Crow Medicine Show and head out directly after that. Unfortunately, with all of the rain, it became a major concern on if we were going to be able to get out and on the road when thousands of other folks were leaving at the same time. We had planned on moving all of our gear out to the car and then heading back in to catch some music. When we got to the parking lot, however, it was clear that the roads in the lot were an absolute mess and going to be very difficult to get out of. Unfortunately we made the decision to load our stuff into the car (which involved more moving through the mud) and then getting on the road. After being towed out of one huge mud pit, we were able to gingerly make our way to the main road and out the gate. Unfortunately that meant missing Trampled by Turtles, Hackensaw Boys, North Mississippi Allstars, Hot Tuna, and Old Crow Medicine Show. It was very unfortunate to miss so many great bands, but with the state of the parking lot and the concern that we wouldn't be home when we needed to be on Monday, the safe bet was to leave early on Sunday.
This venue is gorgeous. Many of the stages, including the two main stages, are permanent wooden structures, locally and sustainably built. This event is focused on staying true to the community and the roots of Appalachia, and they do a great job living out those values. I have never seen a venue so clean (other than the mud) and stages that were so perfect for the area for a festival like this. My understanding is that this is the only major event held here every year, and that's just shocking to me, since it's so gorgeous and versatile. Along with the main stages, there was a Speakeasy/Vaudville stage, the Workshop Porch, the Garden Stage (a true 3rd stage for the festival), and a variety of other small tents and workshop areas around the grounds. There was more going on at FloydFest at any one time than at festivals twice its size.
Along with the great stages, the beautiful view, and the very authentic feel to everything, there were some great vendors. Along with the typical Pesto Mozzadilla place and the places to get hot dogs, there were dozens of local food options and vendors. The food was reasonably priced, and I was able to buy an awesome long-sleeved t-shirt made from organic cotton for $20. Everyone was extremely friendly, and almost all of the vendors were from the area.
One of the cool things about FloydFest is how many extra activities there were. There were multiple yoga classes every day, which is typical nowadays for a fest, but there was also Tai Chi, meditation, workshops for hooping, juggling, poi, devil sticks, etc... They had a Silent Disco, comedians, jugglers, a hypnotist, and plenty of speakers. There was a stage dedicated to kid-friendly shows, an area specifically for teens with speakers and workshops, and family-friendly camping. There was a disc-golf course set up on the venue for the disc golfers at the fest. For those more interested in outdoor adventures, there was also a backpacking trail, a biking trail (including a trail race), kayaking and tubing trips, a photo scavenger hunt, and many other outdoor adventures. Participants in the outdoor adventures even had a chance to win outdoor gear. I don't know if the weather put a damper on any of these activities, but there were plenty of options for everyone.
There were many highlights for this festival. The venue was great. Bands like Gogol Bordello, John Butler, Delta Rae, The Devil Makes Three, and Rising Appalachia all put on stellar performances. I had a lot of fun just hanging out, talking to the attendees and vendors, and exploring the grounds. Without any EDM or indie music as well as focusing a large percentage of the music on folk and bluegrass, the festival had a much older feel and vibe to it. This was not a fest built for late-night ragers. If you wanted to rage, there are dozens of other festivals for you. It was a festival built for fans of diverse music with an emphasis on acoustic, folk Appalachian, and bluegrass music, with some other great stuff mixed in.
As for the negatives, there certainly were a few. First off, there was simply no excuse for the awful procedures we had to deal with upon arrival. This isn't Bonnaroo, there is no reason that it should have taken over 6 hours to get checked in, get to a campsite, and get set up. That's completely unacceptable, and everyone that I spoke with agreed. Apparently they were using a new primary lot and they had significantly fewer buses to shuttle folks to the main venue, but that's a problem that needs to be fixed. Second, while there was some rain Friday night and Saturday, there was no reason that the main paths should've been turned into mud pits. The mud was literally 6 inches to a foot deep and nearly impossible to walk in. The stages at the venue and many of the installations are permanent. They need to build paths throughout the venue that aren't going to turn into mud pits because of some rain. This wasn't a hurricane, it was a half day of off and on rain and storms. The venue should have been able to deal with this. Finally, by the time we were getting ready to leave on Sunday the parking lot should have been ready to go. Instead, the main paths were undriveable, and there were no workers in the parking lot directing cars. Luckily there were a few tow trucks working for free, but there were no workers directing those trucks either. You had to go hunt one down and hope that they followed you back to where they were needed. It was an epic failure, and something that simply should never have happened.
I don't want to focus on the negatives, however. I had a great 2 1/2 days at the event. I saw some amazing music and met some amazing people.
