There are many festivals in the Indiana area this year I’ll be including in this series, and honestly I’ll be attending one again in Winchester Indiana (or at least I plan to) unless something happens. June 1st-4rth of this year we once again have John Hartford Music Festival out there in Bean Blossom Indiana.

I have been featuring this festival for three years now in my series and haven’t been able to cover it live yet, now folks honestly I try to swap up some festivals to bring my coverage to everyone on a balanced basis. I simply cannot make them all, I wished I could. One day I sure would love to make this a living and maybe I can find a way to do it for a living but I AM setting this up to be my retirement.

This festival never ceases to amaze me at the lineups they have up there and it beats many of the Bluegrass festivals that are turned into my inbox, in fact THIS ONE has been dubbed by many as the most laid back festival in America. I want to tell you I know about HUNDREDS of festivals across the U.S.

You can buy your tickets for this event HERE I am quite sure many of you know about this event and have been to it in person. OK So they are now selling single day passes and all weekend passes too, and honestly the price is quite reasonable for the amount of bands they have. Now there is NOT free camping on this one folks but it’s only priced at 9 dollars per night which isn’t bad, I have much more info on here. This year they are extending the festival to feature music on wends night as well, it’s usually not that long.

Off of Hwy 65 just a little bit south of Indianapolis Indiana in Morgantown, just north of Nashville Indiana it is located pretty close to my Tn/Ky area. Most of my local readers can get there in about four hours tops, and it is indeed a nice facility I have been there myself during non-festival functions.

This is the sixth year for this festival and I see no sings of it stopping in any fashion (at least I hope not).
So with that in mind I usually list some hotels in the area for those of you like me that cannot camp for whatever reasons.

Brown County Cabins
Comfort Inn
Abbey Inn
Creekside Retreat
Always Inn

This festival is golf cart friendly and is near another of my favorite festivals in the Nashville Indiana area so I know the area well and there are grocery stores around and this festival has laundry available too. Sooo enojy this festival folks because I think it’s a pretty damn good addition to my series!
