Strings & Sol Announces 2019 Lineup: Greensky Bluegrass, Yonder Mountain String Band, Railroad Earth, More
This year, Strings & Sol will return to the beloved all-inclusive Now Sapphire and Dreams Resort & Spa in Puerto Morelos, Mexico, from December 12th to 16th. As always, the festival draws fans from the United States and beyond because of its extraordinary experience, which includes some of the brightest bluegrass acts in the world playing at a number of unique venues including a beach-front main stage, a poolside gazebo, and an open-air palapa.
The bluegrass-focused destination festival is entering its eighth year, and has invited musical hosts Greensky Bluegrass and Yonder Mountain String Band to return to perform three shows over the weekend. The festival will also feature two sets each from Railroad Earth, The Infamous Stringdusters, Leftover Salmon, and Horseshoes & Hand Grenades. Additionally, The Del McCoury Band, The Travelin’ McCourys, and The Sweet Lillies will perform one set each over the course of the four nights. Special guests Jennifer Hartswick and Natalie Cressman will join the party for collaborations and sit-ins throughout the weekend.
In addition to world-class music, the destination event produced by Cloud 9 Adventures also boasts a tight-knit community of fans, artist-hosted workshops and events, beach jam sessions, theme nights, autograph signings, and additional off-site excursions to explore the area’s beauty and culture.
Strings & Sol is again partnering with charitable organization Positive Legacy, encouraging artists and fans to participate in a day of service and cultural connection in the community of Puerto Morelos as a way of giving back. Positive Legacy’s ongoing projects in the region help bring additional educational and medical services to the local community, with hands-on opportunities for guests to get involved. Details for this year’s Day of Service will be announced in the coming months.
A pre-sale for returning Strings & Sol attendees begins Wednesday, April 17th here. Tickets for Strings & Sol will go on sale to the general public on April 18th at 12 p.m. (EST).
