Tickets ($40-105) and camping ($45-60) are still available at bluegrass.com or 800-624-2422.
Led by singer-songwriter, John Darnielle, The Mountain Goats have been hailed by critics as “America’s best non-hip-hop lyricist” (The New Yorker) and one of the “100 Best Living Songwriters” (Paste Magazine). From his early lo-fi days of releasing cassette recordings made on a department-store boombox to his current catalog of studio recordings on the 4AD label, the prolific John Darnielle has written over 500 songs and been routinely listed on year-end music critics polls.

A fan of fellow festival headliner, Australian Missy Higgins, Darnielle writes on his website: “follow me over to wherever Missy Higgins is playing and watch me bawl like an infant as she sings ‘Steer.’” Darnielle also maintains the highly-respected music blog Last Plane to Jakarta and recently wrote a tribute to Black Sabbath for the “33 1/3” book series.

Additionally, this year’s festival will feature a full 3-day schedule of performances in the intimate 300-seat Wildflower Pavilion. This Wildflower schedule includes 2007 Telluride Troubadour winner Gregory Alan Isakov, Madi Diaz, Priscilla Ahn, and Dan Craig (a member of Hearts of Palm, recently voted Denver’s #1 underground band in the Denver Post).

Following Nanci Griffith’s Saturday night headlining set, roots rock band Stephen Kellogg & the Sixers will perform a late-night “MoonGrass” show in the Wildflower Pavilion. Tickets ($10) to this show are being sold separately from festival tickets.

On the heels of the sold-out Telluride Bluegrass and RockyGrass Festivals, tickets are selling at a record pace for this year’s Folks Festival. Organizers encourage “festivarians” to purchase tickets in advance – as the company charges no handling fees on any tickets. Tickets and camping will likely still be available at the festival gate.

The complete festival lineup also includes: KT Tunstall, Amos Lee, Nanci Griffith, Greg Brown, Patty Griffin, Josh Ritter, Dar Williams, Shawn Mullins, Todd Snider, and many others.

Often mentioned alongside Red Rocks as one of Colorado’s great outdoor venues, the 3,500-capacity Planet Bluegrass Ranch is a relaxed, family-friendly setting. Mature Cottonwoods provide afternoon shade, while the sandy beach and cooling river provide an idyllic music festival setting, where festivarians can enjoy the music by planting a chair directly in the river (with a clear view of the stage), reclining in hammocks in the woods, or floating down the St. Vrain.

The Planet Bluegrass Ranch is located just outside the quaint quarry town of Lyons, CO - 20-minutes north of Boulder and less than an hour from Denver or Fort Collins. The 18-acre historic ranch is bordered by the wooded cliffs of the St. Vrain River in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, just 20 miles from Rocky Mountain National Park.
