All Good Music Festival waiting on safety plan

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. — The All Good Music Festival happens in less than two weeks if a stage can be built in time.

Jefferson County Sheriff Pete Dougherty still needs to approve the festival organizers’ emergency safety plan.

The Jefferson County Board of Zoning Appeals approved the application from Walther Productions, Incorporated in the fall, provided they collaborated with county agencies on health, safety, emergency planning and traffic plans.

Dougherty said he’s not quite ready to sign off on the emergency safety plan.

Dougherty told the Journal he still has concerns about uncontrolled railroad access to the festival site and wants to hear from Virginia law enforcement and transportation officials.

The Festival is scheduled to take place July 9 through 11 at Berry Hill Farm in Summit Point.
