Numbers High for Bristol Rhythm & Roots

Birthplace of Country Music®, the parent organization of Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion, has released numbers for their 2013 music festival that is held each September.  Despite six inches of rain on the biggest day of the festival, the festival recorded a 10 percent increase in attendance over their 2012 event.

The report stated that more than 55,000 visitors, artists, vendors, and volunteers converged onto Historic Downtown Bristol, TN/VA for the annual, three-day festival.  Visitors from 45 states and four foreign countries were represented.  The event was also viewed online by fans from as far away as the U.K., Scotland, Australia, the Middle East, and South America.

Bristol was also recently designated as “Best Music Town” in an online poll by Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine.
