The RTE 23 Music Festival partners with a few organizations to help bring great music to the Appalachian mountains of Wise County.
Birthplace of Country Music
Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion
The University of Virginia's College at Wise
UVA-Wise donates a portion of their facilities to be used as the festival grounds. The college provides ample parking for all festival-goers, a facility for artists hospitality, and most importantly a large open grass area. In this area the stage is erected, vendors set up, the beer garden is located here, and it provides a large, comfortable area for you to place your chair or blanket to enjoy some fantastic tunes!.
