Welcome to a NEW SERIES here on Gary Hayes Country for the upcoming 2019 festival season. As you know WE ARE the festival KINGS of underground and some mainstream festivals, and I watch over 200 nationwide festivals. So several times a week I’m going to feature news and update news from a different festival each time.

Every festival will be linked on the top with a list, you can check on the news of them all. Find ones in YOUR area and BUY A TICKET, or HEY why not plan a trip to one you have never been to yet? Have some fun and explore America, and find NEW MUSIC.

So HERE IS my FIRST FESTIVAL I want to begin featuring, my good friends over at DelFest in Maryland.

The String Cheese Incident to Perform at 2019 Delfest!

YAY! That’s right, folks. The String Cheese Incident just announced the start of their 25th Anniversary Tour and guess what lovely little fairground along the Potomac River they’ll be stopping by?! DelFestivalllllllllll!

If you are into Bluegrass and the new generation of Bluegrass or the Newgrass or Jamgrass or whatever you want to name the genres ( I just call it GOOD MUSIC) you MUST go visit DelFest and celebrate the best festival on the east coast.

Also this last year was the birth of the very first Bluegrass Congress, that had special invitations mailed out and accepted by some of the genre’s greatest contributors.

It’s almost halfway to DelFest. If you need a fix to hold you over there are three DelFest favorites playing the Beltway this weekend.
