Today, WinterWonderGrass Colorado shares its final headliner, Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real, who make their WinterWonderGrass debut over February 25–27, 2022 at Steamboat Resort in Steamboat Springs, CO.
"We have been working hard to bring Lukas Nelson into the WinterWonderGrass community for several years, and finally the stars have aligned,” shares festival founder and producer, Scotty Stoughton. “I had the opportunity to promote Lukas over 10 years ago at State Bridge. After spending a little time with him, I learned that he was not only an incredible musician with a stellar band, but he was a kind and thoughtful human—the exact kind of folks we love working with and welcoming into our community. I always love watching a new act take the stage for the first time, and I know POTR’s headlining set is going to just blow minds. This gathering just cannot come soon enough!
Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real are a welcome addition to the WWG family. Since their debut over a decade ago, the acclaimed band has toured relentlessly, playing countless sold-out one-night shows and festivals around the world, and occasionally serving as Neil Young’s road band. Lukas Nelson co-produced the music for the lauded A Star Is Born (2018) film in addition to appearing in the film with the band. WWG cannot wait to formally welcome them into the family!
Weekend passes are on sale now and prices go up tonight (November 24th) at 11:59 PM. VIP and the Thursday Night Mountain Top Dinner are sold out, but fans can join the safe and secure fan-to-fan exchange waitlist here.
For those who are eager to return to WWG, Steamboat Resort and WinterWonderGrass present Tyler Grant and Friends as part of the Road to WonderGrass Steamboat series, on Steamboat Resort’s opening day from 1:00 - 4:00 PM MT. The show is free and set to take place on the deck of Timber and Torch this Saturday, November 27th. Those in attendance can snag WWG festival passes with no fees, enter to win tickets and other free swag.
Now that the full WWG CO lineup has been shared, weekend passes will see a price increase tonight at midnight, so fans looking to lock in the lowest ticket prices are encouraged to purchase their tickets now. Additionally, single-day tickets will be available starting on Wednesday, December 8, 2021 alongside the official WWG CO schedule. The highly-anticipated return of the Colorado mainstay festival has sold out of VIP tickets and GA weekend passes are moving fast, making it very likely the festival sells out for its ninth consecutive year. Although VIP tickets are already sold out, fans can join the waitlist for VIP tickets via the festival's official fan-to-fan ticket exchange, powered by Lyte. Tickets and more information are available here.
Additionally, Steamboat Resort is hoping for a fruitful year of snow, meaning the slopes should not disappoint for those planning to ski and snowboard throughout the weekend. As such, lodging is moving quickly and travel arrangements should be made accordingly to ensure no one who wants to attend the return of WinterWonderGrass Colorado misses out. More information on lift tickets* and lodging is available here.

2022 marks a decade and the ninth installment of WinterWonderGrass Colorado—the very first presentation of the festival took place in the winter of 2013 in a parking lot in Edwards, CO. Over the last decade, the festival grew, added new stops—including Tahoe, CA—and withstood the test of a global pandemic, which encouraged festival's presenters to re-imagine how to connect fans and musicians outside in the wide open spaces of Colorado. WinterWonderGrass Colorado 2022 is no different.
Stay tuned for more information on WWG CO Grass After Dark* programming, beer partners, and single-day ticket offerings, as well as news on WinterWonderGrass California 2022. Tickets and more information on travel packages available at winterwondergrass.com.
*Please note, Steamboat Resort lift tickets, Mountaintop Dinner tickets and Grass After Dark tickets are not included in regular festival admission and must be purchased separately.
WinterWonderGrass is aware of the ever-evolving tide that comes with presenting music festivals during a pandemic and will comply with all county and state recommendations. More information will be shared as the event grows closer via winterwondergrass.com.
