Howdy, Festivarians!

Thanks to everyone who helped make our 2018 season so magical. From the artists to the volunteers to the loving community of Festivarians, we feel deeply grateful to share in these festivals with you year after year.

Mark your calendars now for all our 2019 Festivals: Telluride Bluegrass (June 20-23), RockyGrass (July 26-28) and Rocky Mountain Folks Festival (August 16-18).

We'll again be selling our most in-demand tickets via online lotteries in November: Telluride Town Park & Warner Field camping (November 5-14), RockyGrass Academy (November 5-14), and RockyGrass on-site camping (November 19-28). All other 2019 tickets will go onsale in early December: Folks Festival (December 3), RockyGrass (December 4) and Telluride Bluegrass (December 6).

With the addition of September's Colorado Kind Festival (happy 25th Anniversary Mountain Sun!), the Mabon Concert was our only Wildflower Concert of the autumn. But watch for the announcement of a very full spring series early this winter!

Although our ticket demand may be high, it's important to us that every Festivarian is heard and taken care of -- especially in the ticket purchasing process. We do things a little differently around here: we handle our own ticketing (and don't charge ticketing fees!), 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 share in the magic of Planet Bluegrass.

With much love,
The Folks on Planet Bluegrass
