Singer/songwriter Kip Moore has been announced by Igniter Productions as the Friday night headliner of the Lynchburg Music Fest. The Georgia native is best known for his energetic live show, three critically-acclaimed studio albums and four No. One hit singles.

The second annual Lynchburg Music Fest will take place on October 2 and 3, 2020, in a new venue in Lynchburg. Once again, the festival brings dozens of country and bluegrass artists to three stages in historic Lynchburg. Furthering its diverse offering of talent, Lynchburg Music Fest is expanding in 2020 to include Americana, classic rock, southern rock and red dirt country artists on the lineup.

“We are excited about adding diversity and culture to this year’s event by bringing in more genres and a dynamic element of songwriters — award-winning as well as up and coming,” said Jonny Hill, founder of Lynchburg Music Fest, and owner and CEO of Igniter Productions. “We feel like this will add a more unique experience for artists and fans.”

The two-day camping festival is amid major improvements, including the new venue for 2020 with the official location to be announced in the coming months. Festival-goers can expect a greater variety of ticketing options and a higher level of talent among the many improvements.  Additionally, festival camping will be available on-site with a new and expanded range of options for campers.

Among the many improvements for 2020, Lynchburg Music Fest has added a new, VIP Select ticketing option. VIP Select ticket holders will have access to VIP viewing areas and the new Songcrafters Speakeasy Tent, where they can expect exclusive appearances from main stage artists and legendary hit songwriters. Whiskey and wine tastings will be offered on-site for VIP Select ticket holders.

With more sponsors to be announced in the coming months, Craig & Wheeler Realty & Auction once again join Lynchburg Music Fest as a major sponsor.

“We are glad to be a part of this great music gathering and family event in the heart of Southern Middle Tennessee,” said Ben Craig of Craig & Wheeler. “We hope everyone will join us for this amazing weekend in Lynchburg.”

Beyond the music, Lynchburg Music Fest will continue to offer on-site events, vendors and activities for guests of the festival. Igniter Productions brings an experiential event to South-Central Tennessee, with on-site amenities and tangible ways for fans to participate and engage in the Lynchburg community.

Early bird tickets are now available for purchase online at Lynchburg Music Fest’s official website or in-person at American Craft Distillers in Lynchburg. Passes purchased online start at $75 for weekend General Admission.
