May 22, 2020 - Coronavirus Update

“There is nothing I hate more than canceling shows.” – John Prine

Greetings Festivarians! The time has come to say it out loud - the fields of Planet Bluegrass will lie fallow for the 2020 Festival Season. Obvious and unbelievable. Oh, how we will miss you. Oh, how we’ll miss ourselves when we’re with you! Emails will go out shortly explaining how to refund or roll tickets over to next year.

We’ve sent scouts ahead to find a trail.
The rest of us?

A fallowing we shall go…

We are finally able to inform Festivarian Nation that the Forty-Seventh Telluride Bluegrass Festival has been laid to fallow.

This is the easiest and most difficult decision that Planet Bluegrass has ever made; and, just when we had summoned the courage to finally announce to the world, John Prine passed.

These words have been erased a dozen times. Neither fire, nor flood. A bug.

It is a devastating realization that the very reason for the existence of Planet Bluegrass is unsafe to festivarians at this time. And far more devastating for the artists to feel the very purpose of their soul should not be expressed, at a time it’s needed most.

We know the word has leaked out and apologize we haven’t had a public announcement while we’ve scurried to have personal conversations with “the family.” It’s a big family, and the conversations are tender.

And so now we turn to you, Festivarian Nation.

Won’t you fallow forth with us? We don’t know the way, but we know where we are going. The journey to Festivaria is more mysterious than ever; but, we will gather again.

We will be contacting all ticket holders directly and offering full refunds. Please look for an email in the coming week.

How will you fallow?

With hearts full of amazement and hope,

Ferg and the Planet Bluegrass Family
