About Mountain Music Festival
When we decided to create a musical festival, our intentions were pretty simple
What Is Mountain Music Festival?
We really like outdoor adventures, and we really like music, so we wanted to create a weekend where we could do both at the same time. This became the Mountain Music Festival, and probably the best weekend of the summer in West Virginia (or at least our favorite). The stage sits right in the middle of ACE Adventure Resort, a 1,500-acre outdoor adventure property in the heart of the New River Gorge, WV.
Music and So Much More!
Festival attendees are always close to the Gorge’s best outdoor activities, ranging from the country’s best white water rafting, to rock climbing, to world-class mountain biking, and basically anything in between. Not to mention, the kind of comfortable cabins and nice bathrooms/showers that you’ll find on an established campground like ACE. And because of the simple ethos behind the festival, you’ll be surrounded by a community of like-minded outdoor adventures who don’t mind a little moonshine with their music, or the other way around.
2014 was our inaugural year, and it was a big hit. We kicked it up a notch each year and had even more fun. After making up for all the sleep we DIDN’T get that first weekend in June of 2014, we’ve been working hard and looking forward to sharing each summer with our friends, new and old, who love the Appalachian Mountains and its soundtrack as much as we do. Get ready as we are gearing up for our 9th year with Mountain Music Fest 2023!
See you all soon.

The festival takes place on natural, flat grounds. No cement walkways or otherwise have been added. Most areas are maneuverable by wheelchairs or other motorized vehicles.
There is no designated accessible camping area as all areas are accessible. It is up to each patron to decide whether a certain area is more difficult to access than others.
Accessible parking is available, as long as the car being used holds a handicap parking pass. When you arrive at the festival, ask for accessible parking and you will be properly directed.
Accessible bathrooms and showers can be found at the main gate area inside the festival grounds. You will find location information on the map once you arrive on site.
Patrons with service animals must check in with the Welcome Center. Only animals with a service animal tag will be allowed on site. If at any time the animal is out of control, puts patrons at risk, is uncontrollably loud, acts as a threat to other patrons, or is abandoned by owner and left alone in the park or car, our staff has the right to request that your animal be removed from the grounds.
Motorized Vehicles / Mobility Devices
Motorized wheelchairs and scooters with three plus wheels are allowed to be used by patrons with disabilities. No golf carts, 2 wheel scooters, or other motorized vehicles may be used. All mobility devices should be operated no faster than walking speed.
On-Site Help / Accessibility Center
If at any time, while on site, you have more questions, need assistance or just want to say hi, swing by the Welcome Center for more information. Our staff is there to help!
