Howdy, Festivarians!

With tickets going on sale this week, we want to take a moment to first thank each and every one of you for your love of music, dedication to this community, and trust in our stewardship of these magical events. We are grateful we get to share these Festivals with you year after year, as we have for the past 28 (Folks Fest), 45 (Telluride Bluegrass), and 46 (RockyGrass) years!

We also want to let you know that although our ticket demand may be high, it's really important that every Festivarian is heard and taken care of - especially in the ticket purchasing process. As you know, we do things a little differently around here...we handle our own ticketing, we answer our own phones, we don't highly publicize our onsale dates, and we don't pre-announce our lineups. It's all in an effort to keep a homespun operation moving smoothly, to limit scalpers, and to give everyone a fair chance to purchase tickets.

To be honest, things get a little crazy around here when tickets go on sale, so here's the deal: All tickets will go on sale at 9am MST on the following dates: Folks Fest & The Song School (Monday, 12/4), RockyGrass (Tuesday, 12/5), Telluride Bluegrass (Thursday, 12/7). You can purchase yours either online at shop.bluegrass.com or by calling us at 800-624-2422. If you call, it might take a few tries to get through to the Ranch, so please bear with us as we help each Festivarian.

For day-of updates, please follow us on Facebook and Twitter. Please do NOT send direct messages on Facebook -- we cannot guarantee a quick response to those messages. If you have a question or concern or want to talk with us about your purchasing experience, please leave a COMMENT on our Facebook page or give us a call. We will do our very best to answer each of these within a few minutes.

Godspeed, good luck, and we can't wait to see you all again in 2018!

With much love,
The Folks on Planet Bluegrass
