“We are overjoyed to be bringing the bluegrass festival back to Raleigh as an in-person event this year,” says David Brower, festival producer and executive director of PineCone, a Raleigh-based non-profit. “There’s a magic that happens when our streets are filled with music that’s played from the heart. For folks who’ve never experienced this event, it’s a joyous sight to see when it all comes together. After this past year, we all could use a little bit of that festival magic.”
As previously announced, proof of vaccination will be required for attendance at any IBMA World of Bluegrass activity requiring registration and ticketing. Masks will also be required at all indoor activities and are strongly recommended for outdoor shows.
“We are excited to announce the full performance schedule for this year’s IBMA Bluegrass Live! powered by PNC,” shares Pat Morris, executive director of IBMA. “It will be great to gather again to celebrate live music! Music fans will be able to enjoy artists ranging from Hall of Famers to award-winning rising stars to special collaborations with amazing guests. We’ve taken specific measures to safeguard the health and safety of attendees, so it’s our hope that these protocols will allow everyone to join us in downtown Raleigh this year.”
For those not able to attend in person, IBMA will be streaming select content throughout the week. Virtual attendees will have access to the virtual exhibit hall, conference sessions, music performances, and more. Details for virtual tickets will be announced in the coming weeks.
