Greetings Festivarians,

With most of our thoughts focused on lighting up our Sam Bush jack-o-lantern for trick-or-treat-ers tomorrow night, here's a last-minute costume idea: dress up like a RockyGrass Academy student or a Festivarian camping at Town Park for the 35th Telluride Bluegrass. Telluride Bluegrass kids paradeIt'll help get you in the mood to enter the online lotteries for both of these tickets.

These lotteries are open now thru Sunday, November 4, at 11:59 MST. As with all our ticket lotteries, the order of your entry doesn't matter - we'll draw lottery entries at random, filling each until we sell out of spaces. We expect to sell all the Town Park camping/vehicle passes and most of the Academy classes through these lotteries, so make sure to get your entry in by Sunday night.

If we aren't able to fill your lottery entry, you won't be charged anything. But if your lottery entry is selected, you'll get to don your magical costume again next summer at Telluride Bluegrass or RockyGrass Academy.

We have one final ticket lottery later in November: on-site camping/vehicles for the 36th Annual RockyGrass Festival (July 25-27). That lottery will be open from Nov. 12 thru Nov. 27.

RockyGrass AcademyThen all other tickets for the 2008 Festival season, including the Folks Festival and The Song School, will go on sale on Wednesday, December 5 at 8am MST. Scribble these important dates all over your Festivarian calendar - your summer depends on it.

With the Academy lottery underway, we are excited to announce that Bryan Sutton, Russ Barenberg, Mike Marshall, Tony Trischka, Darol Anger, Todd Phillips, and The Infamous Stringdusters are among the preliminary list of musicians who will be teaching all week at next summer's RockyGrass Academy (July 20-24) here at the Planet Bluegrass Ranch in Lyons, CO.

RockyGrass AcademyAcademy instructor bios and more details are available at bluegrass.com, and we'll have more instructors to announce in the coming days and weeks. For bluegrass pickers, the Academy is truly the greatest week of the year. Anywhere.

Finally, this weekend Steve Szymanski, vice-president of Planet Bluegrass, will be a featured panelist at the Americana Music Association conference in Nashville discussing "Where Do We Green from Here?" Steve will be sitting on several panels with some of the most experienced environmental consultants and coordinators in the business sharing our experience as a leader in sustainable festivation.

The folks at Planet Bluegrass
