Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival

Are you a bluegrass fan? Great. Does bluegrass not even register on your radar? Still fine. The free annual festival has been attracting acts across genres in the 16 years it’s been around, featuring everyone from the Mother Hips to Gogol Bordello on their stages. This year, CAKE, Chris Isaak, Emmylou Harris and many more are among the additions to the full lineup. Fans will also get a chance to experience something completely novel: a silent disco. Starting at 1:30pm on Friday and at noon on Saturday and Sunday, a sublime 2-channel silent disco musical affair will take place in Shady Grove (between Banjo & Rooster stages). Anyone who’s attended the festival over the years can attest to the fun that’s had and surprises in store, so it’s hard to imagine that this year will be different. Bring a blanket, food, drinks, friends, and settle in for a memorable weekend.
