2019 RockyGrass Camping

On-site campsite at RockyGrass
On-site campground at RockyGrass

Camping passes for the RockyGrass On-Site campground were sold via an online lottery open November 19-28. All other 2019 RockyGrass camping passes go on sale Tuesday, December 4.

RockyGrass is widely known as a "picker's festival." And that pickin' happens in the campgrounds -- late-night intimate jams where the pros and the hot-shot Festivarians trade songs and hot licks. Though the music on the main stage continues to blow our mind every single year, for many Festivarians the campground scene is the RockyGrass experience. With more than half of the RockyGrass Festivarians camping in Lyons during the festival, learn more about the campgrounds we're again offering in 2019.

Once you have your camping passes, be sure to start thinking about our green campsite challenge.

Camping Changes for 2019


Planet Bluegrass Campgrounds

On-Site campground
On-Site Campground
Includes a 3-day pass
  • Location: On the Planet Bluegrass Ranch - fields on both the north (tents only) and south sides (tents and vehicles) of the Festival grounds
  • Vehicles: If you need to camp next to your vehicle, a very limited number of vehicles passes will be sold for the south part of the on-site campground. Vehicles must be less than 21' in length. (If you do not need your vehicle at your campsite, general festival parking is available nearby for a nominal fee.)
  • Opens: 6pm on Thursday, July 25 (Please note: Prior to the gates opening, campers and vehicles may line up at the Planet Bluegrass Farm.)
  • Closes: noon on Monday, July 29
  • Camping Passes: $265 - Sold-out via online lottery open from November 19-28
Saunter back and forth from the Festival to your campsite throughout the day. With easy access to the Planet Bluegrass bathhouse and showers, lots of shady trees, the St. Vrain River never more than a few feet away, and the ability to hear the festival from most campsites, on-site camping has become an extremely popular (and coveted) ticket. And that doesn't even begin to consider the world-renowned late night jamming that takes place late into the night throughout this campground.Top
