Today’s the very last day to buy your tickets for this weekend’s Meadowgrass Music Festival at the discounted price and, sadly for you, camping sites are all sold out. But day passes for $50 and full festival passes for $85 can still be had HERE.

If you’ve never been, let’s just say La Foret for even a day is reason enough to buy tickets. Nestled in Black Forest with gorgeous views of Pikes Peak in a wide open alpine meadow with a big yellow and white striped tent in case of rain, the setting couldn’t be more idyllic.

But of course it’s the bands you’ll want to stay for, and this year’s lineup features some of the Americana greats, a few of which you can sample below. Click HERE for the full lineup and see you there!

Headlining Friday night at 8:30 p.m., it’s Blitzen Trapper:

Playing at 11 a.m. on Saturday morning, it’s one of our favorite local bands, The Changing Colours:

1:30 p.m. Saturday: Cahalen Morrison and Eli West:

At 4 p.m. on Saturday, it’s the legendary Kristen Hersh of Throwing Muses:
