About Mountain Music Festival

When we decided to create a musical festival, our intentions were pretty simple


We really like outdoor adventures, and we really like music, so we wanted to create a weekend where we could do both at the same time. This became the Mountain Music Festival, and probably the best weekend of the summer in West Virginia (or at least our favorite). The stage sits right in the middle of ACE Adventure Resort, a 1,500-acre outdoor adventure property in the heart of the New River Gorge, WV. This way, festival attendees are always close to the gorge’s best outdoor activities, ranging from the country’s best white water rafting, to rock climbing, to world-class mountain biking, and basically anything in between. Not to mention, the kind of comfortable cabins and nice bathrooms/showers that you’ll find on an established campground like ACE. And because of the simple ethos behind the festival, you’ll be surrounded by a community of like-minded outdoor adventures who don’t mind a little moonshine with their music, or the other way around.

2014 was our inaugural year, and it was a big hit. We kicked it up a notch each year and had even more fun. Ever since the show ended (or rather, after we made up for all the sleep we DIDN’T get that first weekend in June), we’ve been working hard and looking forward to our third year – with new and old friends who love the Appalachian Mountains and its soundtrack as much as we do. Get ready as we are gearing up for our 5th year!

See you all soon.

It’s easy to get lost in the mountains (both literally and figuratively)

And when you’ve got a 1,500-acre backyard at your disposal, you’re bound to want to explore it.
