GO FEST is a grassroots event organized by a group of people who are passionate about the outdoors. We believe in celebrating what makes the Roanoke Region such a great place and music is part of that.
We're excited to partner with the Music Lab at Jefferson Center and CityWorks (X)po Big Ideas for Small Cities for your listening enjoyment. The Music Lab represents an innovative model of experiential learning in music business, technology, and performance as an extension of the education area schools provide. The Music Lab prepares local youth for future education, careers, and interests in the music and entertainment industries. The Music Lab students will handle all aspects of GO FEST music - from booking bands to ensuring it sounds stellar.
All live music takes place Saturday (10/20):
CityWorks (X)po is a yearly festival conference: Big Ideas. Small Cities. Hosted in Roanoke, VA the same weekend as GO FEST.
