My heart was torn when I read that the John Hartford Memorial Festival would be in Springville, Indiana, not Bean Blossom, IN at the Bill Monroe Music Park. I love my little cabin in the woods at the Bill Monroe Music Park (BMMP). It has served us well for many adventures at the John Hartford Memorial Festival (JHMF). And it was reserved and paid for from June 1-5, 2022. ‘My’ cabin has beds, an air conditioner, mini fridge, microwave and sleeps four. We know how to set up to suit our tastes and keep dry.

GMP Live is excited to announce the return of North Beach Music Festival, set to take place over December 9th–11th, 2022 at the familiar and newly renamed historic landmark, Miami Beach Bandshell, and adjacent Bandshell Park.

Philadelphia Folk Festival is proud to share the daily lineup for its 60th anniversary celebration taking place August 18-21, 2022 at Old Pool Farm just north of Philadelphia. Spanning four days of eclectic artistry, the milestone event kicks off Thursday evening with performances by Louisiana-based soul outfit J & the Causeways, Celtic-pop sister act Screaming Orphans, and award-winning Scottish folk rockers Talisk.

Summer is officially here, and Bill Monroe’s Music Park & Campground is presenting the 2nd annual Hippy Hill Fest happening July 28-30, 2022, in Bean Blossom, Indiana. The music festival features music of the 1960s & 70s, a time where it moved towards an electric, psychedelic version of rock, reflecting the off-beat, psychedelic characteristics of the counterculture itself. Celebrating the music and the 80th birthday of Jerry Garcia, this family-friendly festival is the heart and soul of summer festivals.

If you’re an avid music fan, you’ve likely been on the prowl for some live performances in a world trying to recover from a pandemic. Fans everywhere are braving the heat this summer to see their favorite artists again or for the first time. Festivals all over the world have been steadily coming back making all our live music dreams come true.

As the sun rose over Monterey, the final day of the festival we had all waited the last three years for felt bittersweet. The anticipation was more than lived up to as the artists we have all come to know and love played with the crowd of 10,000 singing every lyric to every song behind them. Day four was packed with reggae legends and royalty both new and old as the last day of the longest Cali Roots to date sent Monterey home in style.

Day three of Cali Roots drew possibly the biggest crowd in the festival’s history. The masses served as a reminder to all of the community that had been missed so dearly over the last several years. In so many ways, it felt almost like a family reunion with friends in the reggae community we haven’t seen in far too long. With half the festival having passed, the best was still yet to come as Day three held some of the best surprises of the weekend.
