Get Involved


We will not be opening for applications for Mountaingrass 2021. Instead we will draw from the applicants selected for the (cancelled) 2020 festival.  

If you are considering applying for Mountaingrass in 2022 please note that Mountaingrass only selects acts that play bluegrass, American old-time music and traditional country on acoustic stringed instruments.  You can read our selection guidelines here: Guidelines for Artist Applications.



Experience the festival from the inside by becoming a volunteer. In exchange for 6 hours of work you will receive a ticket to the festival.

Volunteer applications open annually on August 1 and close 2 weeks before the festival.
