End the Summer with a Final Fling at the Inaugural CampFest Music Festival

Remember what it was like to be a kid near the end of summer?

School beckoned, but there were still a few days left for fun before that first bell rang signaling the start of classes.

The folks behind Georgia's newest festival, CampFest, are hoping youthful memories of good days gone by will bring you to their event scheduled for 18 September 2015 through 20 September 2015 in the north Georgia mountains.

Campfest, a three-day celebration that revives the excitement and nostalgia of childhood summer camp, will be held at beautiful 250-acre Camp Blue Ridge, located within two hours of Atlanta, Georgia and Asheville, North Carolina. Campfest combines attendees’ favorite summer camp activities (plus some new ones of their own!) and top-notch live music performances to deliver a weekend packed full of adventure and relaxation.

Campfest's artist lineup includes the New Breed Brass Band, Wrenn, Cold War Kids, Hey Rosetta!, Langhorne Slim, The Whigs, Roadkill Ghost Choir, Margo, the Pricetags and more! Campfest is an intimate experience with artists hanging out, participating in activities and holding impromptu jam sessions, so campers should expect to get extra face time with some of the incredible artists on the lineup.

Three-day Event Passes are on sale now at for $89, and VIP tickets are priced at $250.

All guests staying onsite must either purchase a $75 camping pass or a cabin pass starting as low as $150 per person in addition to an event pass.

Tickets for The Lodge, the epitome of camp luxury, include a private room with full sized bed, Happy Camper lounge with fireplace, VIP admission for 2 to the festival and tons of snacks and goodies.
