    If you are old like us, yes it is worth it. VIP RV especially- such little walking, so convenient. Food you get is not great but not bad. Free water is a nice amenity, and walking right up to the front of the stage basically any time you want is great. As is the outdoor lounge area. Not a huge Phil guy, so may not buy until seeing the lineup.

      Agree with all.
      Pretty tired of the “Dead” thing elsewhere. I mean geez, that’s tedious after six or seven decades, but Lockn’s promoters have both a connection and a skill. If it’s going to be good, it’s going to be good there.
      I like the new dates.
      I’m tempted.
      It’s just that “Dead” deal.
      (and I go way back)

          I do not see myself making Big Ears in 2020.
          But for those that are interested in going fyi.

          BIG EARS TICKET ALERT!


          We’re certainly thrilled to report that Big Ears 2020 has experienced unprecedented response and demand for weekend passes. If the current pace continues, we expect the 2020 festival to sell out weeks in advance for the first time in Big Ears history.

          The limited quantities of Weekend Premier and Sonic Explorer VIP passes will be the first to go. We expect both to sell out during the holidays, but possibly sooner. The remaining GA passes will also be reaching the Tier III pricing level in the near future as well.

            A nice little (initial) lineup at DelFest if it's your type of music (looks really good to me):

              Very cool to see local boy (and scary musician in his own right) Joe Craven doin' festival MC duties on this one - he's already shown his glib announcing skills at a few California fest's... this may be a very good way to extend one's audience reach and career arc!

                Thanks, I have wanted to go with friends for a while and could never make the August dates happen. The move to June, a week before my birthday, was just too convenient to pass up. Not too excited about a "Dead heavy" lineup either, but I'm sure there will be plenty of music I can enjoy

                  Picked up my ‘Lumni ticket. Price and 45 minute door to door trip makes it a no brainer for me. Good thing is there are often good sit ins for Leah and Friends (Trucks, Anders, Stringdusters, Haynes, etc.) which I enjoy. The Foundations of Funk set two years ago with some of Dead and Co. joining was great. They do a nice job with collaborations at Lockn.

                    Nice lineup. Hope most of that lineup ends up at Telluride Bluegrass 3 weeks later.

                      DelFest

                      DelFest will return for its 13th year in 2020 as the festival has begun to share details on next year’s weekend festival. On Thursday, event organizers announced that the 2020 event, which will take place at the Allegany County Fairgrounds in Cumberland, MD on May 21st-24th, will treat attendees to performances throughout the weekend from host bands The Del McCoury Band and The Travelin’ McCourys along with Béla Fleck & The Flecktones, Billy Strings, and more.

                      Other artists included in the event’s initial 2020 lineup announcement include Old Crow Medicine Show, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Punch Brothers, Sam Bush, Mandolin Orange, The Infamous Stringdusters, and Sierra Hull.

                        You will have a blast for sure! Have been every year except year 1, and there is always great music, great collaborations, great staff, kind fans. Be advised that entry can be rough, though never for VIP. Just have stash well stashed and don't try to sneak any glass bottles in. The short line and slack security at entry makes VIP even more worth it!

                          Last year was the first year with no real Dead headliner. Many of the faithful stayed home because of that. I thought it was excellent! TTB is my favorite act these days and their collaborations with Trey were beyond my expectations. And the smaller than usual crowd was perfect. Change of dates makes it hard for me to pull the trigger- it will have to be an awesome lineup to get me back. This is the first time I won't be grabbing a 'lumni ticket.
