Lockn’ Music Festival:
LOCKN’, a 4-day music festival, with an emphasis on world class music, locally sourced food and sustainability is held annually at the Infinity Downs Farm and Oak Ridge in the foothills of the Blue Ridge in Central Virginia.
Lockn’ was created by industry veterans Dave Frey and Peter Shapiro. Frey founded the HORDE Festival while Shapiro owned New York City’s historic rock club, “Wetlands Preserve.” He also produced U2’s award-winning film U23D and currently publishes Relix Magazine as well as being the proprietor of Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn, NY, Las Vegas, NV, London and The Capitol Theater in Port Chester, NY.
Lockn’ was named for traditions central to both Frey and Shapiro: The interlocking performances presented at Wetlands and the continuous uninterrupted music featured between the two stages at HORDE. Lockn’s conceptual theme will touch all elements of the event: “when something ends, another begins.” Lockn’ is one of the country’s most unique and dynamic events. Frey and Shapiro’s sense for innovation and creativity together with the backdrop of this beautiful setting in the Blue Ridge Mountains makes for an unforgettable weekend.
