Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

DelFest 2013Nashville, TN -- Anticipation for the sixth Annual DelFest has ratcheted up significantly in recent weeks. Whether it’s from the spring weather in the air, the additional line-up announcements, or the faithful fans just not able to wait much longer, it’s safe to say that this year’s festival can’t come soon enough.

Daily schedules were announced last week, and next Monday, April 22nd is the deadline for purchasing tickets at the current price level for the chance to see some of the best bluegrass, acoustic, string, and then some, gathered in one place on Memorial Day Weekend.

This year’s lineup includes the festival’s namesake and headliner legendary Del McCoury, Trey Anastasio Band, Old Crow Medicine Show, Yonder Mountain String Band, Trampled By Turtles, Leftover Salmon, an All Star set dubbed the Masters of Bluegrass pairing Del with other luminaries Bobby Osborne, J.D. Crowe, Bobby Hicks, and Jerry McCoury, and much more.

In addition to 4 days and nights of non-stop music, discounted ticket prices include free on–site camping with great facilities, artist playshops, kids activity area, a band competition, an arts and craft faire and access to plenty of food and beverage vendors. DELuxe Experience tickets as well as RV hookups are sold out, and there are only a handful of dry RV passes still available.

DelFest is May 24 through 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.

The DelFest Academy is also selling fast with only a few slots remaining in some of the classes. The Academy consists of a friendly, encouraging, and intensive three-day learning experience with a group of some of the finest musicians in bluegrass. This year’s instructors are The Travelin’ McCourys and The Rambling Rooks. DelFest Academy will take place May 21-23, 2013.
