In 2013, the LOCKN Music Festival began to create an incredible atmosphere at the Academy of the Center for the Arts in Lynchburg, Va. The program was a huge hit and has developed into a successful part of our music scene in the last four years. Since then we have turned it into a real festival with live music, food trucks, live entertainment and more.
On the main stage LOCKN has two other sides of the stage, where you get more intimate bands and the crowds are smaller. The sobering situation is for those who want to camp away from the party crowds. You will find a place to rest your head on a beautiful soft pillow while the music fills the day and you can enjoy a long, warm shower.
To sweeten your deal, we have LOCKN shuttles from our hotel and Brew Ridge Tours that will take you to and from the hotel. Lynchburg, Virginia, is one of the best places to camp for General Admission (GA) options in the country. There are a number of options to camp with the General Admission (GA) option, including camp on the main stage, in a private parking lot or on the campsite for $10 per person.
Whatever your musical tastes, Lynchburg has a place that suits your style and genre. While sipping your coffee and listening to music, Lynchburg has several shops that perform live. A convenient footpath leads through the grounds and we encourage you to bring your bike to get to the venue and enjoy the bike path.
