Share this event:

Lancaster Roots and Blues is a fantastically fun music festival featuring outstanding live music from across the U.S. and beyond. The 2017 festival on Feb. 24, 25 and 26 (Friday through Sunday) will be our 4th annual event. Each year gets better and 2017 will be no exception. We are adding larger venues with more shows on Saturday afternoon and Sunday.  Though we have developed a reputation for booking emerging artists, we will also be booking more "Name" artists for 2017.
Blues is on the menu but so are many other great musical art forms that America can proudly call home including Jazz, Americana, Folk, Rockabilly, Rock n Roll, Bluegrass, Funk and Soul and so much more.  This festival is a music lovers paradise.

We have three-day General Admission tickets that will get you in every show for all three days. (Except for VIP parties and special events.)

We also offer a two-day and one-day ticket.

VIP Experience Presented by Lexus.

Each year we offer a VIP Experience for our select sponsors and supporters.  We also offer a limited number of VIP tickets to the public. This year we have expanded what the VIP Experience Presented by Lexus offers.  

1.Each VIP ticket holder will receive a Festival shirt and a Poster.

2.There is choice seating at the main stage (Big Tent) for VIPs.

3.First seating at Steinman Hall in the Ware Center- Must arrive at least 20 minutes before show time.

4.There is a series of Private VIP cocktail receptions with food.

5. New this year will be private mini concerts in the new Sugartank Recording Studios (252 N. Queen St).   Concerts will be Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Schedule to be announced. Wine compliments of The Winery at Grandview.

6.VIP Party presented by Lexus on Saturday from 4 p.m to 6 p.m. at Lancasters newest special events hall the gorgeous Excelsior, 125 East King St.  Featuring Clarence Spady and Matts Blues with a great selection of treats and hors doeuvres from Miesse Candies, Kegels Produce and Duffys Catering.

7.On Sunday the Demuth Museum at 120 E. King St. will be presenting a show to our VIP guests of high quality photographs featuring the musicians from the first three years of Lancaster Roots and Blues.  There will be wine and cheese provided by J. Maki Winery including mimosas.  Time to be announced shortly.

Bring your ticket to the Independence Room at the Lancaster Marriott in Penn Square of Lancaster.  There you will receive either a wristband for one day attendance or a VIP Lanyard good for all 3-days.  You can also pick up your poster and Festival shirt there.  

Lifetime memberships:  

Each Lifetime member will receive an annual general admission ticket good for the entire festival each year as long as the festival continues. The goal from day one was to create a long-term music festival in downtown Lancaster Pennsylvania.  I want it to be a tradition as long as I'm alive and even years after that.  I'm a crazed music fan and I'm guessing if you're still reading this, you are too.

We are only offering a very limited number of Lifetime Memberships.  The money from this offer will give us a stronger base to operate from, to grow the festival and bring in the artists we want to hear.  For this week only through Sunday March 13, a single, Lifetime Membership is $650.00, and $950.00 for a two-person membership.  

Answers to more questions you may have:

What if I want to upgrade in any given future year to VIP level ticket?  

If you have a general admission ticket and decide you want to upgrade to VIP status you can.  Upgrades will be offered each year. Of course if you want a VIP ticket and you haven't bought any tickets yet, just buy a full VIP ticket. At the very least, your Lifetime Membership or your Early Bird General Admission Tickets will get you access to every show at every festival and a VIP Experience upgrade would be icing on the cake.  We spend many months developing the perks for VIPs and will announce what the 2017 VIP Experience will offer in the fall.

Is the Lifetime Membership ticket transferable?

A single ticket can be transferred anytime before the 2017 festival in case you want to make it a gift.  Just email us here with your name and the name of the person you want to transfer it to. After that you cannot transfer the ticket. That means when you triumphantly enter the great Juke-Joint in the sky at 101 years of age your Lifetime Membership goes with you. If you buy a pair, you can choose to assign one to another person at some point or you can maintain the ownership of the membership and bring the guest of your choice each year.

Note:  The ticket date on Lifetime Membership says for Feb. 24-26, 2017.  Brown Paper Tickets does not have a way to show an open ended purchase.  Rest assured you are in fact buying a lifetime membership good for annual admittance to the festival.

Thank you for considering this.  I hope you can join me in our quest to make a great music festival even better.

Many more details will be added over the course of the year.  The bulk of our schedule is usually announced in mid-fall.  We will be redesigning our website this year to make it easier to find all the information that will make your festival experience better.
