About

DelFest is May 24 - 27, 2012 at the Allegany County Fairgrounds in Cumberland, MD (2.5 hrs from Baltimore and DC). The festival originated from the desire to create a family-friendly music festival celebrating the rich legacy of McCoury music while creating a forum for world-class musical collaborations and to showcase fresh new talent with a down-home feeling. Personally chosen by Del, the Allegany County Fairgrounds in Cumberland, MD serves as the perfect location for DelFest--nestled along the Potomac River in the scenic Appalachian Mountains, the Fairgrounds are convenient to four major airports and easily reached by rail or road.

Attendees can again expect to see one-of-a-kind collaborations, special guest sit-ins, various tributes to Del McCoury and his musical legacy, intimate appearances, both at unique “playshops”—informal workshops where the emphasis will be on performance rather than instruction—and in late night shows and picking sessions. DelFest will also include a band competition, and once again the festival will be preceded by the 3-day DelFest Academy hosted by The Travelin’ McCourys, where all levels of musicians can learn from some of the best pickers in the world (May 22 - 24).

Discount tickets are now on sale. DELuxe (VIP) packages and RV passes are also available. Information and tickets at www.delfest.com.
