IBMA and the new World of Bluegrass 2014
Yesterday (26 March 2014) the International Bluegrass Music Association announced that booking of registration, hotels, and tickets for this year's World Of Bluegrass (WOB) will soon be open - on 31 March for IBMA members, and 14 April for the general public.
The World Of Bluegrass - IBMA's annual bluegrass music homecoming comprising business conference, trade fair, awards show, and festival - is scheduled for 30 September–4 October in Raleigh, North Carolina, and will build upon last year's tremendous success with new activities, seminars, and opportunities for attenders.
WOB was held at Raleigh for the first time in 2013, and proved to be an amazing rejuvenation of the events and the bluegrass community, with total attendance for the week estimated at 146,000, exceeding all expectations. This year's event will incorporate many further improvements, based on feedback from those who attended WOB in 2013.
Full details are on IBMA's online press release.
