Fly Free Festival Announces Full Lineup

Chattanooga To Atlanta Grassroots Music And Arts Festival Is Oct. 10-12

Wednesday, August 06, 2014

The 2nd annual Fly Free Fest, taking place at Cherokee Farms in Lafayette has released the remainder of their lineup for 2014. The lineup now consists of a wide variety of genres with Railroad Earth, Dan Deacon, The Motet, The Octopus Project, and Desert Dwellers rounding out the top of the bill. Many regional favorites will join them in a weekend of creation and community. 

Festival founder Corey Petree and his wife Colleen have set out to create something different every year for Fly Free’s fans. 

“I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t tempted to continue booking more jam acts to fit with the headliners we booked," said Mr. Petree.  "That’s probably a temptation I’m going to deal with every year since the common perception is that bluegrass fans might not like experimental music or vice versa. We know there are plenty of other music fans out there like ourselves that love and appreciate all types of music. We would love nothing more than to provide an intimate outlet for those fans.” 

The $95 general admission tickets last until Aug. 21; after that they will increase to $110. Tickets include car-side camping, three days of music, vendors, live painting, flow artists, workshops, disc golf, and many other activities.
