Blue Ridge Rock Fest 2023 Lineup
After months of piecemeal reveals, the Blue Ridge Rock Festival was expected to reveal the full lineup for their 2023 music weekend, but after noting on their social media an 11AM ET reveal, no info was immediately provided and a message on the festival's Instagram Stories noted "a couple of very last minute curveballs thrown at us" as the reason for the delay.
That said, a majority of the lineup had already been revealed in recent months. The event returns to the Virginia International Raceway the weekend of Sept. 7-10, with some major names expected to be added as soon organizers "get everything perfected right for you."
Blue Ridge Rock Fest touts itself as a fan-driven festival, taking feedback from the online social interaction in determining who to book for each year's event. Among the major acts already named for the event were headliners Pantera and Shinedown as well as Limp Bizkit, Evanescence, Till Lindemann (making an exclusive U.S. performance), Megadeth, Papa Roach, Lamb of God, Rise Against, Three Days Grace, Cypress Hill, Chevelle and more.
