About Bristol Rhythm
Bristol Rhythm is more than a festival. It's an infectious, three-day music experience bursting with creative passion, electricity, and soul. Every third weekend in September, State Street in Historic Downtown Bristol, VA/TN is amped to the beat of the Appalachia's past, present and future. Featuring an eclectic mix of folk-rock, alternative country, Americana, traditional bluegrass, country, and old-time music on more than 20 stages, Bristol Rhythm digs down deep into the roots of our region's sound and lifts its branches to new heights.
