LANGSVILLE —Expect some guitar distortion this weekend at the Meigs Rockin’ Rally in Langsville.

The music festival hosted by the Meigs Bikers Association will run Aug. 4-6, as they partner with American Legion Post 476 in “A Salute to the Veterans.”

Friday and Saturday will see fifteen rock bands playing full sets, according to Jeff Totten, who helped organize the artists.

The Belpre native was excited for the last major music event of the summer, and described the vibe of the upcoming weekend as “a party.”

Sunday is reserved for motorcycling events, including a variety of riding contests.

Festivalgoers may purchase $30 day passes, or a $50 weekend pass. Gates open at noon on Friday, and primitive camping space is free.

Keith Hypes, member of both the Bikers Association and American Legion post, said retailers and food vendors would be open all weekend, and had several giveaways planned. Legion members will garrison alcohol sales inside the event grounds.

Totten said Friday’s set list would be more “danceable,” while “Saturday we really turn it over to the rockers.”

Both days feature a mix of locally known acts, including Jake Dunn and Blackbirds, along with more widely acclaimed artists, such as Deadset Society (formally Never Say Die).

The festival will take place on 60 acres of Legion post property, 26100 Legion Road, Langsville, Ohio 45741.
