Loudoun YouthFest hits One Loudoun on Saturday

This Saturday is the 12th annual Loudoun YouthFest, a festival organized by and for Loudoun teens.

The festival will be located at the Barn at One Loudoun, 20405 Savin Hill Dr., Ashburn, from 3-8 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at http://www.loudounyouthfest.com, for $8.50 before June 16, or at the gate for $10. Tickets cover everything at the festival, excluding the food trucks.

One of the main points of the festival is music, with the headlining Indy-pop band Cruiser from Philadelphia. Some musical acts are Loudoun County teens, three of which are winners of the Loudoun Battle of the Bands contest. One is StoneCold, the fan favorite from the battle of the bands. StoneCold is an all-girl band, with members ranging from 7th to 10th graders.

Lauren Moore, the drummer of SoneCold, is eager to perform at youthfest. “I’m excited. It’s like, ‘Wow we made it that far,’” Daly said.  

Other local bands performing are first-place winner Never Born to Follow, second place winner 10 Degrees Colder and Cast Another Stone, Kathleen, Matthew Cahill, Suburbia, The Shallow Roots and Witches Brew.

Besides music, there will be a large Nerf gun fight, human bowling and a mechanical bull. This fest will also have food trucks and prize giveaways for guests.

"Loudoun YouthFest is a one-of-a-kind event here in Loudoun County,” said Jared Melvin, president and CEO of Loudoun Youth, Inc. “And all of this is organized by teens right here in Loudoun. We are so proud that our youth are stepping up and becoming leaders through their experiences with Loudoun Youth, Inc.”
