Tickets On Sale for 2023 Rocky Mountain Folks Festival at Planet Bluegrass 

Lyons, Colorado – 

There are few music venues more significant and more beautiful than Planet Bluegrass.  From RockyGrass to Rocky Mountain Folks Festival and a variety of concerts and events scattered throughout the year, there is just something extraordinarily special about this amazing festival location. 

RockyGrass might have captured your attention in the past, and of course, Telluride Bluegrass Festival (produced by the same festival team!) is at the top of the charts for one of the best bluegrass festivals to exist.  But, we’ve always had a sweet spot in our hearts for Folks Festival. 

Planet Bluegrass typically curates a lineup for Folk Fest that is a little folk, a little jam and a little rock ‘n roll.  And for 2023, their initial lineup is proving to be just a little out of the ordinary – exactly how we like it!
