Rock Camp, West Virginia’s Pink Moon Festival kicks off its eighth year today and will run through the weekend, bringing four nights of camping, music, and arts.

Last year, 12 bands from our little hometown headed to the festival to bust some eardrums and melt some faces, and this year, nine bans from RVA will be headed there this weekend to perform.

The Southern Belles, The Congress, Toxic Moxie, Imaginary Sons, The Folly, Venus Guytrap, Suneater, Josie Mcqueen and Headless Mantis will be taking the stage at some point during the four-day festival.

Over 100 acts from different states will perform all four stages throughout the Pink Moon Festival. You can check out the rest of the lineup below.

In addition to bands, there will also be an art gallery curate by Silver Arrow Art, Tinderbox Circus Slideshow, Hoop Troupe, bubble art, live painters, and other visual and performing artists.

Founders Jessica Abramson and her husband Seth Abramson, started Pink Moon in honor of Seth’s late mother Pinky Testerman, who passed away in 2006. You can read more the fest here.

It’s looks as thought tickets are priced per day, tickets for today (Thursday) are $100, Friday is $90, and Saturday is $75. You can purchase yours here.

Check out some videos from the RVA acts who will be performing to get you into the spirit for Pink Moon:
