Announced for Memorial Day weekend, the Big Brush Creek ROOTS Music Festival & Campout, in Southeast TN

A roots music annuity for the roots community. May 24-27, 2019, Dunlap, TN

It’s a little festival on BIG land. The Big Brush Creek Fest is designed to be a boutique destination festival. A three year plan between Festival Factory, LLC and Big Brush Creek Farm, LLC, Hal Davidson head of Festival Factory and Big Brush Creek LCC, owners of the 1,170 acre festival paradise in Sequatchie County, Tennessee agreed to take a few years to grow the festival, increasing the number of stages and bands along the way.

Forming a Joint Venture in September, 2018 after 2 years of contemplating festival alternatives on the Cumberland Plateau, both parties agreed to present the inaugural Big Brush Creek Fest as a roots based 4-day weekend with camping. Davidson said half the inspiration for the event format was deciding on music that would fit with this green, rolling landscape. This picture needed a natural sound, blending Tennessee’s natural beauty with naturally American sounds.

This meant a mix of bluegrass, newgrass, jambands, reggae, funk country, new country, and some rock music on one stage hosting 25 bands over the entire Memorial Day weekend 2019. The other half of the inspiration for a ROOTS festival was 89.5 FM, ROOTS Radio blasting 100 watts from Murfreesboro, TN. In meeting John Walker, Exec Dir. of 89.5 and the founder of Music City Roots at the Pinewood Social Club in Nashville on May 18, Davidson learned about the degree of care in the on-air programming selection. WMOT is now a media partner with the festival. And so, Davidson is being very selective on exactly what the lineup is and when they perform. “We intend to feature talented regional bands in a very attractive, secluded place. The music on stage should reflect the sound of ROOTS radio.”

Davidson said “The full talent lineup should be booked by the end of 2018, with marketing starting in early 2019”.

So far, multi-genre performers booked are: Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper, Unspoken Tradition, Dr. Bacon, Glade City Rounders, Tennessee Mafia Jug Band, Lauren Morrow of Whiskey Gentry, Jordan Foster Band, Tennessee Jed, Time Sawyer, Cody McCarver will perform his new gospel album on Sunday morning, Ashleigh Caudill Urban Soil, Plainview Vibes, Southern Proof, Matt Rogers, Jon Hott and the Short Mountain Boys, Natchez Tracers, Lazaris Pit and 6 more coming! “All of these bands were invited due to the level of their music, they’re all great!” Davidson said.

The festival will continue to search for bluegrass troubadours who will stroll around the nightly bonfire late night. Solo, duos and trio bluegrass “Shade tree pickers” can apply by clicking SUBMIT A BAND on www.bigbrushcreek.com

Camping on the 1,170 acre festival site for 4 days is unique in itself, but with Early Bird Weekend Festival Passes starting at just $49, and a Combo pass with camping at just $79 for 2019, make this festival a compelling vacation value.

Because the talent, overall production and marketing campaign is a fraction of most other events, those savings are passed along to the ticket buyer. “Where are you going to camp and listen to great music on this kind of land for $79?” Davidson asked. All ticket prices are listed now and there’s plenty of space for RVs. Big Brush Creek Roots Music Festival & Campout is accepting merchandise, food vendor applications and corporate sponsors now.

Big Brush Creek Farm is located 3 miles off SR 111 near Cagle, 16 mi. North of Dunlap, about 50 minutes N of Chattanooga. The site is 1.5 hrs. SE of Nashville, within 2 hrs. of Knoxville. The farm is comprised of huge pastures, miles of trails, several natural amphitheaters (for future use), rolling hills, a 14 acre lake, ponds, streams, and large wooded areas.
