A promoter for the Lockn’ Festival says “bring it on” in the fight with the ABC. The state agency has been trying to deny an alcohol permit for the September music event in Nelson County. Lockn’ promotor Dave Frey says one of the claims from the state agency is that Lockn’ attracts drug users and criminals. Frey says Lockn’ already has the necessary permits for this year, and any ruling against the event will be appealed at all levels. He says the event has contributed greatly to the economy of Nelson County. Frey was a guest on WINA’s “The Schilling Show.”
