The next artist reveal is slated for Nov. 14, 2019, with more to follow over the next five months.

“To properly evoke a vision, it’s necessary to understand one’s past, current reality and future hopes. To do this one must consider a community of like-minded people, artists and patrons who come together to celebrate via music and art for a better world,” said Kris Hodges, FloydFest founder and CCO. “This year’s 20th installment of FloydFest — dubbed ‘Vision Quest’ — speaks to a carefully curated purposeful program of musicians and tantalizing art installations to evoke this vision for all attendees.”

“Vision comes in all forms and is one of the paths to how the spirit and soul awakes. If you can quiet the self and let the world bathe you in its beauty you can start to find the place where the quest resides. To those that wander to the mountaintop we invite you come help create shared sustainable visions with us and celebrate the music and the magic that is FloydFest 2020~Vision Quest,” said John McBroom, festival co-owner and CEO.

Tickets for the festival went on sale this morning at 9 a.m. on FloydFest.com.

UPDATE: Following backlash from fans following the initial artist announcement, FloydFest on Nov. 2 said that they were cancelling CeeLo Green’s scheduled performance. See the full explanation below.
