Iron Blossom Festival To Take Place This Weekend (Aug 26 & 27)

Clear your calendars for the weekend of August 26 for Richmond’s newest music festival: Iron Blossom Festival. Set to take place August 26 and 27 at Monroe Park in Richmond, Virgina, Hill Presents and Haymaker Productions are bringing a new festival to central Virginia. This event will mark a new beginning for Richmond and its ever-growing music scene, as this lineup perfectly encapsulates the unique, yet homely, feeling of RVA.

Headlining Iron Blossom are Hozier, Noah Kahan, and Lord Huron.

Four years after the release of “Wasteland, Baby”, Hozier aka Andrew Hozier-Byrne released his highly-anticipated third studio album “Unreal Unearth” on August 18th, about a week before he will be joining us in Richmond. Since 2014 and the release of “Take Me to Church” Hozier has captivated his audience with his soulful voice and story-telling, as this so clearly shines in his newest album. Amidst an almost completely sold-out tour, Richmonders are excited to bring him into our historic town.

Noah Kahan will also be gracing the stage in late August. After the release of his album “Stick Season” in late 2022, Noah Kahan has been on a constant rise. With “Stick Season” and “Homesick” blowing up on TikTok, Kahan has already amassed a strong following. Kahan will be finishing up the U.S. leg of the “Stick Season” tour this Fall, so if you won’t be able to attend Iron Blossom to see the New England singer, there are tour dates following the festival with tickets still available.

Lord Huron, comprised of members Ben Schneider (singer), Tom Renaud (guitar), Miguel Briseño (bass, keyboard, and theremin), and Mark Barry (drums, percussion), has also had a busy few years. The indie folk band, similar to Kahan, has been making music for quite some time, but quickly gained popularity due to their track “The Night We Met” appearing on an episode of Thirteen Reasons Why, and then also re-surfacing in popularity through TikTok. Their new album “Music for the Starling Girl” was released in July of this year. While a tour for this album hasn’t been released, they will be attending multiple festivals throughout the rest of the year.

This stellar lineup also includes Elle King, Faye Webster, Neal Francis, Colony House, Nikki Lane, Son Little, and Richmond native Matthew E. White, who if you didn’t catch at DayDream Fest back in May, you do not want to miss him this weekend.

Tickets went on sale back in May, but there is still plenty of time to purchase them before they’re gone. 2-Day GA and 2-Day VIP tickets are available for purchase. VIP grants access to a particular viewing area, a second-stage viewing area, entry lanes, an exclusive right to be the first to purchase 2024 passes, and access to a VIP Lounge.

While fans are enjoying the music, they can also check out the multiple “Richmond-favorite” food trucks and craft cocktails that will be offered at the festival. One of the best parts of festivals is trying all of the different foods, and there will be plenty of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. There will also be a craft bazaar from local vendors to visit in between sets.

Richmond has hosted multiple exciting music events, with some of the biggest being the Richmond Folk Festival and Friday Cheers on Brown’s Island. Iron Blossom Festival will be added to those ranks shortly, as Richmonders are gearing up for the event of the Summer.
