Tickets are on sale now for the 3-day music festival in Del Norte, CO – August 4-6, 2023.

Rhythms on the Rio Music Festival has announced the Full Lineup for the annual music festival in Del Norte, CO.  Rounding out the list of headliners is the Grammy Award-winning jamgrass quintet The Infamous Stringdusters.

The Infamous Stringdusters join the previously announced headliners The Motet and Kitchen Dwellers.

Other additions just announced include Cabinet with special guest Larry Keel, as well as The Larry Keel Experience.  Nosotros and Elder Grown also join the lineup, along with artist-at-large Bob Hemenger.

The festival also announced the addition of Late-night Tent Hosts The Bent Ears and Dane and the Soup.

These latest artist announcements add to what was already a not-to-miss lineup featuring the aforementioned The Motet and Kitchen Dwellers, as well as The Brothers Comatose, Lindsay Lou, Shinyribs, The Hip Abduction, TK & The Holy Know-Nothings, Arkansauce, Mama Magnolia and The Morningside String Band. 

Rhythms on the Rio has a reputation for bringing in a lineup spanning several genres and grabbing some amazing up-and-coming artists.  The popular bluegrass and jamgrass bands are often joined by a healthy sampling of funk and soul, and this year is no exception.

The Colorado 5-piece funk outfit The Motet is sure to kick off the dance party for the weekend with their Friday night headlining set.  Kitchen Dwellers, Saturday’s headliner, will keep the party in full swing with an energetic twist on bluegrass, folk, and rock as they bring their unique galaxy grass to Rhythms on the Rio.  The Infamous Stringdusters will be closing down the festival on Sunday night, ensuring that no one goes home early!

Cabinet will be bringing their Pennsylvania bluegrass on a rare journey to Colorado, treating festival attendees to a special set with their friend Larry Keel,  who will be sticking around to perform with his band, The Larry Keel Experience. From the opposite coast, The Brothers Comatose will hit the Rhythms’ crowd with their raucous West Coast renderings of traditional bluegrass, country, and rock ‘n’ roll.

Attendees are sure to be mesmerized by Lindsay Lou‘s soulful grooves and beautiful voice, and Shinyribs will surely have the entire crowd on their feet and dancing together.  All who were in attendance in 2022 will be thrilled to see the return of the much-talked-about The Hip Abduction, who won over the crowd with their uplifting jams.

TK & The Holy Know-Nothings‘ “psychedelic doom boogie” will fit in perfectly on the Rhythms on the Rio stage, and will certainly create plenty of new fans, as will the hard-hitting hooks of ArkansauceMama Magnolia will turn heads with their funk and soul jams, combined with silky vocals and amazing stage presence.

When the Latin-swing band Nosotros fills the Rhythms stage, we’ll dare you to sit down!  Funk meets pop, rock meets Hip Hop, jazz meets Reggae when local Elder Grown returns to Rhythms on the Rio.  And we’re sure to see an eclectic mix out of Steamboat Springs’ The Morningside String Band.

Bob Hemenger returns to Rhythms on the Rio as artist-at-large, adding his smooth sax to sets throughout the entire weekend.  And everyone who was at 2022’s festival will be thrilled to learn of the return of the late-night tent and The Bent Ears, this time joined by Dane and the Soup.

All of this adds up to another fantastic party in Del Norte, CO. 

Tickets are on sale with attendance capped to maintain an intimate festival feel, so don’t sleep on this one!
