Planet Bluegrass Ranch after the floodIt's been two months since the historic flood devastated much of our hometown of Lyons. As the flood waters receded we vowed to rebuild Planet Bluegrass better than ever. On this two month anniversary, we're even more determined to make 2014 our most powerful summer of festivals in both Lyons and Telluride.

So before we go any further, grab your calendar. Here are our upcoming lottery and ticket onsale dates:

RockyGrass Academy (photo: Benko Photographics)Though the flood destroyed much of Lyons' infrastructure, many in Lyons are now able to return to their homes and reopen their businesses -- thanks to the tireless efforts of town officials, work crews, volunteers, and many local and national teams (including FEMA and the National Guard). Here on Planet Bluegrass we officially reopened our offices last Monday morning. With all of us gathered together in the first repaired building (dubbed the Festivarian Embassy), we're ready to reconnect with Festivarian Nation via your phone calls and emails, as Planet Bluegrass 2.0 continues to take shape outside our door.

RockyGrass Academy (photo: Benko Photographics)Amidst the flood rebuilding, we've spent much of the last two months talking with musicians about our 2014 season. We've begun to post the instructors for the RockyGrass Academy (July 20-24) including Bryan Sutton, Noam Pikelny, Matt Flinner, Chris Eldridge, Sally Van Meter, and many others. Keep checking back as we'll continue to post more instructors as soon as they confirm (and don't forget to register via the online lottery by 11:59pm tonight!). Look for us to begin announcing initial festival lineups in the next few weeks...

Town Park campground (photo: Benko Photographics)Thanks for all the generous and heartwarming offers of support over the past few months. There will be opportunities to help with Planet Bluegrass's flood recovery in the coming months. In the meantime, we encourage you to help our community via the many resources at

With love,
The Folks on Planet Bluegrass
