The 2019 Lineup

Crank over the steam powered aereo-plain and here we go! We are gearing up for our 9th annual John Hartford Memorial Festival. For nine years we have gathered at the beautiful venue Bill Monroe built, and we've danced on his stages, in front of the stages, and over every square inch of his yard, to so many bands and songwriters that we can't mention them all here. We are so proud and happy to have felt the love from all of you, our loyal festival family. We ask you each year to bring someone you love, and you do. Just imagine who you would love to see sitting or dancing next to you, tell 'em that you'll be in Bean Blossom, IN from May 29 - June 1, 2019.

We are tickled to announce the final lineup of entertainers for the 9th annual John Hartford Memorial Festival "The Most Laid Back Festival in America". To purchase Multi-Day or Single-Day Tickets click here. To view the daily lineup click here. To view the hourly stage schedule click here.

Due to illness Sam Bush has cancelled his performance at JHMF. We all wish Sam a full and speedy recovery. We are happy to announce that the HillBenders, JHMF favorites, will be performing on the Hartford Stage in that same time slot! Saturday afternoon, they will also fill in for Sam's workshop slot with their presentation of MarleyGrass! Thanks, HillBenders!
