Elkins, WV – Davis & Elkins College is excited for the return of the Déjà vu Music Festival on April 28, 2023 at the Citizens Bank of West Virginia Amphitheatre. The festival which began in 1980 is a “last blast” for students before the end of the academic year and has evolved into one of the premier music festivals in West Virginia. Over the years, the festival has hosted names such as Dierks Bentley, Brothers Osborne, Flogging Molly, Vanilla Ice and O.A.R to name a few. To celebrate its 43rd year, the Déjà vu Music Festival will host country music sensation Chase Matthew.

Warner Music Nashville’s Chase Matthew is on the fast track to becoming one of Nashville’s hottest newcomers. A Music City native, Matthew began his career by independently paving a path for himself in the genre, due to his infectious personality, rowdy live performances and authentic, relatable music- amassing a massive 450M+ global career streams (with more than 150M global streams on his first RIAA GOLD-certified smash, “County Line”), garnering 1M+ followers across social media and being named HITS Magazine “One to Watch.” In March of this year, Matthew was invited to perform on the most sacred stage in country music- The Grand Ole Opry.

In an interview with Celeb Secrets Country, Matthew recalled that the “Opry” was a crazy experience, and “many people don’t get that opportunity, and I got to share the moment with my family. I feel so humbled, and I always remember I do this for them too. They have pushed me to chase my dreams, and getting to share that moment with them was definitely special. I can’t wait to do it again.”

With Matthew’s sophomore album scheduled to drop this month, attendees to the 43rd annual Déjà vu Music Festival are in for an exciting performance by one of country music’s rising performers. This event is open to everyone. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 14 and can be purchased online through ITickets.
