Bluegrass in the heart of Grevenbicht also in 2016! The introduction of the festival was repeated in 2014, a line has been drawn. In the year 2015 we saw the 3rd edition, an area can be written. On the foundation on which we can build, the prepartion for a 4th edition is in progress. The start of a imaginairy volume..
We now can fully focus on the bands, their music and needs. We would like to be a festival in service of the people and the musicians. For bands it is the opportunitiy to present them selves in Europe. In 2016 we continue the wish to be a full member of EBMA. For more information look at the calander of EBMA Bluegrass_calender.
The audience can enjoy this style of music. Around noon doors open at the community home Oos Hoes (GPS Burg. Kotenplein). There you can listen to good music or play along with other musicians, professionals and amateurs mix. Bring your guitar, double bass, banjo, violin, mandoline, ukelele, cello, or any other acoustic instrument and meet in a jamsession, or slow jam workshop.

In the centre of Grevenbicht we connect with local businesses transform it into ‘festival terrain’, were bands perform, jam/slowjam and mix with people. Besides music the weekend can also be used to visit beautiful Limburg and its river the Maas (Meusse).
