One of South Carolina’s water festivals has been named as one the best in the world.

The DriftJam Flotilla Music Festival, which features a floating stage, speakers and a huge LED screen off Spence Island on Lake Murray, makes for a day of fun, sun and music. And American Express Essentials, a digital magazine for the company, featured it as one the World’s Best Fun Floating Festivals.

When festival organizer Doug Gainey started DriftJam in 2013, he thought he would just arrange a small get-together with friends and a band. Now DriftJam is a full-blown production with five bands and around 5,000 attendees.

This year’s DriftJam will be held on June 2 – and it’s free.
