Inaugural Edisto Music Festival Rocks Holiday Crowd

Two Days of Music!!
With an extra-long holiday weekend for the Fourth of July to work with, two Edisto entrepeneurs founded the Edisto Music Festival, a two-day celebration of live music. The festival grounds are located on Edisto Island along Highway 174, in a prime location to welcome visitors from the steady traffic going the holiday weekend hotspot at Edisto beach. The outdoor venue for the concerts promised that rain or shine the music would play on, and lots of summer sunshine kept the jam band crowd warm and dry.

“Mossy Oaks Farm is a 28-acre equestrian facility and my residence,” said event co-founder Dean Hyatt. “I have some experience as an event space because we have hosted many weddings here, and the Edisto Music Festival seemed like a good way to expand. I’ve always been a music guy and a fan of classic rock, and I’m comfortable with this live music format and I hope people enjoy visiting. We have 25 volunteers on site to handle ticket sales and parking, and the Charleston County Sheriff department is here too. “

The grounds at Mossy Oaks Farm are complimentary to the sounds of the Edisto Music Fest. Located along Russell Creek the well-spaced pecan orchard shades horse paddocks, while old and weathered live oaks tell the story of long a maritime history. Resurrection fern and Spanish moss adorn the tree limbs that seem to connect the horse stables to the pastures where the horses are stationed. The music adds another layer of sensation for those lucky enough to be present, and here’s hoping for more live music coming soon.
