The Blue Ridge Rock Festival 2021 was a landmark event for rock enthusiasts. Held from September 9-12 at the Blue Ridge Amphitheater in Danville, Virginia, the festival drew massive crowds eager for live music after a year of lockdowns. The lineup was a rock lover’s dream, featuring over 180 bands across multiple stages.

The festival opened with a bang. Day one featured standout performances from heavy hitters like Five Finger Death Punch and Skillet. The energy was electric as fans roared back into the live music scene. The sound of powerful guitar riffs and pounding drums echoed through the picturesque Blue Ridge Mountains.

Blue Ridge Rock Festival 2021 Day One was a little better getting there, but was certainly the highlight for performances for me personally.  Early band Stitched Up Heart impressed me.  Chris Jericho was a fan favorite playing with Fozzy.  Yes, that Chris Jericho.

Supergroup D.R.U.G.S (Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows) was their first show in over six years.  It was a common theme among a lot of bands playing, their first show in 500 days or so, including Asking Alexandria who played later in the day.  Even with favorites of mine like Clutch, Anthrax and Sevendust putting on great sets, the winner of the day was Fever 333.   So much energy and passion from the stage, including when they played while climbing the side scaffolding.

Do not miss them when you have the chance.  Rob Zombie put on a colorful exciting show as the headliner.
