Summergrass in Germany

Thank you, Hans, for sharing this exciting News :
Last year Wintergrass was organized for the third time in the city of Groningen (the Netherlands), with a lot of succes. Therefore we got the idea to organize a beautiful bluegrass-event in the summer also. Next to the big GrevenGrass festival in june we would like to invite you to the first Summergrass Festival in Greven-Reckenfeld. The festival will take place from the 25th until the 27th of july.
Along with Olaf Rickerman, the host of the beautiful country house with the same name, we will provide a nice location. There will be room available for caravans, mobile homes and tents. Sanitary facilities will be available. Non-campers we will have the possibility to rent apartments or rooms.
Camping at Rickermanns is free of charge!
"Landhaus Rickermann" will provide gastronomic meals during the festival, but you'll have the possibillity to cook your own meals at the campsite.
Jamming can take place on different locations indoors and outside, so bring your own instruments. There will also be a concert-programm in the main hall of "Landhaus Rickermann". This will take place on Saturday from 15.00 pm. You're invited to attend the concerts or to play with your own band. Since the festival is free of charge, we can not pay wages, but you will have free drinks of course. Headliner of the festival will be
Kristy Cox & Band and Travis List, both from Australia. Kristy Cox will play at 21.00 pm., the entrance fee for this show will be 10 euros. The concert program will be hosted by Ronnie Snippe, well known as leadsinger of the Dutch bluegrass band Lazy Tater and moderator of the GrevenGrass Festival. Reservations for the campsite can be made at the website or you can send an e-mail to
