Newgrass pioneers Jerry Douglas, Sam Bush, Tony Rice, Peter Rowan, and Darol Anger have been pushing traditional bluegrass music in novel directions since the 1970s.

Festival Story:

All day the audience is treated to headliner after headliner on the main stage. Then when the final headliner finishes their set on the main stage, the campgrounds come alive with jam sessions. A walk through the campground is a vital part of the RockyGrass experience—hearing pickers of all ages and backgrounds sharing in the common language of bluegrass music.

RockyGrass is held at the Planet Bluegrass Ranch in Lyons, Colorado— located along the wooded banks of the beautiful St. Vrain River. The historic quarry town of Lyons is just 15 miles north of Boulder in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. The town is known for its antique stores, restaurants, artists, and musicians. Numerous camping options nearby include: on-site at the festival grounds, under the cliffs at Meadow Park (a quick five-minute walk from the festival), or at the Olson Campground (a 10-minute walk or via the free shuttle buses).
