That Familiar Feeling: Boulder Weekly Folks Fest Preview

“Folk music is a feeling more than a sound. Listening to folk music, whether it’s about love or death or sex or politics, feels like coming home after a long day at work. It feels like the first cool rain of spring or the first bitter wind of winter — it’s familiar. It’s part of us, of the seasons of our lives. The Folks Festival is about tapping into that familiar feeling.”

Change to Tarp Policy at 2019 Folks Festival

Due to overwhelming Festivarian feedback, we will be limiting the maximum tarp size for the 2019 Rocky Mountain Folks Festival: Tarps may not exceed 10’ in length or width. As in past years, we expect that most groups will bring smaller tarps, occupying just the space they need. But any tarps larger than 10’ in any dimension will need to be folded to fit within a 10’x10’ space.

This tarp size policy applies to both the morning tarp run (when Festivarians will again be limited to a single tarp per person), as well as tarps placed throughout the day. Our staff will be monitoring tarp sizes on the field throughout the festival. Please help spread the word to your Festivarian family, and feel free to share your thoughts with us by emailing planet@bluegrass.com.
