Earlier this year, before all the Covid chaos, we talked to you a lot about DelFest. While this awesome Memorial Day Weekend event won’t be happening IRL (“in real life” for those of you who are old like me) DelFest’s team is bringing fans a digital version of the festival during the originally scheduled festival weekend, May 21st through May 24th. The streaming event will celebrate some of the awesome musical highlights from the event’s past, including sets from The Del McCoury Band, Trey Anastasio Band, Greensky Bluegrass, Billy Strings, I’m With Her, Marty Stuart, and many more.
Donations collected throughout the weekend will go toward funding the DelFest Foundation, an organization that works with non-profit organizations such as Western Maryland Food Bank, Allegany Health Right, and Habitat for Humanity as well as others in and around Allegany County, home to DelFest for over a decade.
Starting Thursday at 4:30 pm Eastern, fans can tune into Nugs.tv, DelFest’s youtube channel, or Facebook page. The hours of the steam and a full list of performers can be found below.
