Tickets are on sale now and we are told that they "are 30% ahead of last year's record setting pace". That means they're going fast and you can see why:

2012 Lineup

No stranger to the festival scene, Dawes will be touring several fests on the strength of last summer's Nothing Is Wrong. Stops at the Chicago Bluegrass & Blues Fest, Australia's Bluesfest, Coachella, and Floydfest will all precede their August visit to Lyons. Their latest video from is Nothing is Wrong is the lead track "Time Spent in Los Angleles".

Kasey Chamber's latest, Storybook, just came out in September. Her 8th studio release features this cover of the 90's classic from Suzanne Vega, "Luka".

Darrell Scott has a new one that Wendy Wham has raved about, and if you haven't seen either Peter Himmelman or Lyle Lovett AND His Large Band - you're in for an experience. The Rocky Mountain Folks Festival is August 17th through the 19th. Grab your tickets, stare some more at the lineup, and start pining for the summer.
