The 11th Rock, Ribs and Ridges festival — postponed from June 27-28 of this year — will take place over three days in 2021, June 25-27, with a modified lineup, at the Sussex County Fairgrounds in Augusta. Tickets from 2020 will be honored.

As the festival’s title implies, both music (mostly with a Southern-rock flavor) and barbecued food will be featured. There will also be overnight camping. The “Ridges” refers to the festival’s scenic location.

Screamin’ Eagle Band
8:30 p.m.: Marshall Tucker Band

1 p.m.: Matt Coffy Band
2:15 p.m.: Kyle Daniel
