Complete Lineup For 19th Annual Folks Festival In Lyons, Colorado Announced
Intimate Roots Festival Set To Go Down August 14, 15 & 16
Just three weeks after the sold-out RockyGrass Music Festival event organizers, Planet Bluegrass, welcome festivarians back to Lyons, CO for the 19th Annual Rocky Mountain Folks Festival (Aug 14-16). The recently announced main stage schedule features headliners Gillian Welch, Susan Tedeschi, Rufus Wainwright, Don McLean, and many more among the mature Cottonwood trees and redstone cliffs of the St. Vrain River.
Single-day tickets, 3-day passes, and camping are still available at folksfestival.com or 800-624-2422.
The carefully curated lineup of main stage performers goes well beyond the confines of "folk music" into the breadth of Americana - from the classic pop of Rufus Wainwright to the jazz-folk of Madeleine Peyroux; from the blues-rock of Susan Tedeschi to the indie-folk of M. Ward; from the swamp rock of JJ Grey & Mofro to the cellist/songwriter Ben Sollee.
The 15-acre Planet Bluegrass Ranch is located in the foothills of the Rockies less than an hour from Denver or Fort Collins, and just 25 minutes from Boulder and Rocky Mountain National Park. Camping is available along the St. Vrain River on the festival grounds or under the dramatic cliffs of nearby Meadow Park. Smaller than its cousins Telluride Bluegrass and RockyGrass, the Folks Festival has a more intimate, relaxed late-summer vibe as kids play in the sandy beach while adults enjoy the music from a hammock or chair planted in the river.
Complete festival lineup:

Over the Rhine
JJ Grey & Mofro
