Hollystock music festival held to promote businesses and family atmosphere

August 20, 2013 by  

Mt. Holly, located just outside of Hainesport was recently host to an all-day Hollystock festival that took place throughout the town’s historic district on August 10.

There were 45 bands playing on seven indoor and outdoor stages throughout the town, all at no charge, with food available for purchase at various restaurants throughout town. In addition, Hebe Music offered a beer garden with beer served up by the ladies of the Atlantic Coast Roller Girls. The Atlantic Coast Roller Girls is a non-profit organization that is designed to grow and develop the sport flat track roller derby for women only in southern New Jersey and to also make charitable contributions to the community.

Some of the bands and performers included John and Brittany, The Great Socio, Kid Felix, Roger Delany, the Magnificent Birds of Prey, the Steve Oakley Band and the Defused Soraia.

The Main Street Mount Holly and the Hollystock planning committees which presented this festival of music no doubt used banner printing throughout the town and surrounding areas to make people aware of this unique event so as to attract the many people who attended it.

The overall purpose of Hollystock is to help the economy of the town by promoting the various businesses that call it home and actively seeking the participation of merchants from the town and surrounding areas. Hollystock provides an atmosphere for family fun and also supports a variety of charitable causes such as VH1 Save the Music Foundation.
