Hi All,

Post flood I have spent all of my camping for Rockygrass in Riverbend and it has greatly enhanced my RG experience. It has been brought to my attention from a group of friends that there was a weird altercation late night at Riverbend last year which was set to change things this year. From what I was told, there is a belief amoungst some festivarians that Riverbend is a "family" campsite and there are quiet hours for no picking. One specific father was apparently extremely confrontational with pickers throughout the weekend. I have only heard one side of this story, but I've heard from multiple people on that side (the pickers) that claim this person was extremely confrontational to the point he was ready to start a fight and call the cops.

Anyhow, according to the pickers, the way that Planet Bluegrass staff was able to calm this guy down was by stating that going forward Riverbend will be a family campsite with no picking allowed. Can anyone on the PG side of the house confirm or post any new policies around this?

I really hope this is false news as this is the prime spot in the most prime of all picking festivals. I understand that the goal is to be more inclusive and inviting to all levels of music fans, but this is Rockygrass. If you don't want to listen to pickers, camp in Bohn.

I really hope this is not true. It's hard to imagine a "No Picking" attitude can even exist at RockyGrass.  Let alone a "No Picking" campground.
