World of Bluegrass Tickets on Sale From April.
Ticket sales will open to IBMA Members starting at 10 a.m. CT on April 4 and to the general public at 10 a.m. CT on April 18.
Hotel rooms at the Marriott, Sheraton, and Residence Inn are preferred by most attendees because of their location in the heart of everything for the week. These rooms can go quickly, so we recommend being ready to purchase tickets and conference passes at 10 a.m. CT on April 4. Once you make a purchase, you will be directed to hotel links to book your room at IBMA discounted group rates.
The five-day IBMA World of Bluegrass event, billed “The Most Important Week in Bluegrass,” will run from Sept. 26 – Sept. 30 and includes the IBMA Business Conference, the IBMA Bluegrass Ramble showcase series, the 34th Annual IBMA Bluegrass Music Awards and IBMA Bluegrass Live!® powered by PNC, a two-day festival from Sept. 29 – Sept. 30.
