ROMP Festival 2018

Are you ready to ROMP??  Celebrating its 15th year, the River Of Music Party (ROMP) Festival will return to Owensboro’s Yellow Creek Park led by iconic artist, Alison Krauss, bluegrass and country music legend, Ricky Skaggs, the ‘Father of Newgrass,’ Sam Bush, and Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame member, Doyle Lawson.  The four-day music festival will take place June 27-30 at Yellow Creek Park, a 150-acre facility known for its nature trails, winding creek and fishing lake, and sweeping tree lines.

Additional acts include Rhiannon Giddens, We Banjo 3, and Billy Strings. The complete lineup can be seen here.

When not jamming out at one of the stages, festival goers can attend artist-led workshops ranging from instruments and songwriting to yoga and clogging.  Additional offerings include organic, local farm-to-table food vendors, craft vendors featuring Kentucky Proud products, art installations and professionally-led children’s activities.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their own instruments and jam throughout the weekend, as well as dance the night away at the Late Night Stage, featuring nationally acclaimed acts in the park’s rustic Pioneer Village.

If you’re looking to go off site for a bit, check out the schedule of events and transportation offered. Campers are encouraged to take advantage of the shuttle and trolley to take trips in and out of the park to explore Owensboro!
