Ferg got to share the exciting news about “Live From Here with Chris Thile”… So since it’s nearly 11pm on the winter solstice eve, I’m going to carry on our little tradition of leaking the full TBF lineup to you Forumvarians before the rest of the world… :thumbsup
(fondly remembering the days of our “scroll for it” lineup teases ;))

Woohoo!! So glad I checked one last time before bed (east coaster). So many great artists! Gotta say, I’m over-the-moon excited that Sturgill Simpson and I’m With Her are on the lineup!! Well done Planet Bluegrass!
Great lineup! I’m obviously happy to see The Dusters on there. And I’m extremely excited for St Paul and the Broken Bones! I caught them a few years ago in Missoula and holy hell that was a great show! And The Wood Brothers, Billy Strings, and Sturgil!
Was hoping to see The Smokies on the initial announcement, though. Maybe some things just need to be saved for later?
WOW!! :thumbsup This is looking fantastic! :medal Thank you for stoking the fire and thank you Brian & Ferg for that stoke :burn
To all the PBG staff, thank you for all you do! :flower Have a very Merry Christmas, end of Hanukkah, Holiday season.
Can’t wait to see y’all and bask in the music in that box canyon in 6 months!! :cheers
Rolled outta bed at 6 am, am told to look at lineup, read it out loud and promptly shed tears of joy. Missed the last 2 years and am just elated to be back among my friends and this music for this year.
