PNC presents Wide Open Bluegrass, a one-of-a-kind urban bluegrass festival!

Featuring IBMA and Grammy Award winners, top-notch emerging acts, traditional bluegrass, and acts that stretch the boundaries across eight stages in downtown Raleigh.  The Main Stage at Red Hat Amphitheater is a fundraiser for the Bluegrass Trust Fund, a 501c(3) that provides emergency support for bluegrass music professionals.

Why Attend

By purchasing a ticket to the Main Stage at Red Hat Amphitheater you’re doing more than seeing the best bluegrass lineup at the biggest bluegrass event of the year.

You’re also supporting a great cause!  

Up to half of the net proceeds support the Bluegrass Trust Fund, a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization helping bluegrass professionals in times of need.  The Trust has given out over $800,000 in relief assistance to bluegrass music professionals.  

Your contribution through the purchase of Wide Open Bluegrass tickets makes this important work possible!

Main Stage at Red Hat Amphitheater features the best in bluegrass, with 16 performances over the two-day festival.  This one is not to missed!
