LOCKN', a 4-day music festival, with an emphasis on world class music, camping, outdoor lifestyle activities, locally sourced food and sustainability is held at Oak Ridge Farm 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, 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 touches all elements of the event: "when something ends, another begins." Lockn' is one of the country's most unique and dynamic events.
