Wide Open is a benefit concert, with proceeds from admissions supporting the work of two important non-profits: The Bluegrass Trust Fund, which provides financial aid to bluegrass pros in time of emergency need, and the efforts of The International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) to promote bluegrass music around the world.
You're not only enjoying a remarkable weekend of music, connection, friendship, and fun... you're making great things happen all year round!
Your festival ticket allows you admission to all festival stages in the Red Hat Amphitheatre and the Raleigh Convention Center. As well as the Music Expo on Friday and Saturday, also located inside the Convention Center.
Tickets to the festival go on sale to IBMA Members, for an exclusive presale opportunity, on Wednesday, May 15 at 1:00 PM Central
