Silver Bay, NY – Silver Bay YMCA is pleased to announce the return of its premier family-friendly musical festival, Bluegrass in Heaven, which is slated to take place from September 13 – 15, 2024.

The first Bluegrass in Heaven music festival, which occurred in September 2023 on Silver Bay YMCA’s 700-acre campus, passed expectations with over 300 tickets sold. Until February 29, individuals buying Bluegrass in Heaven Tickets will be able to use the promo code BGIHEarlyBird to receive a 10-percent discount off their ticket purchase. (The promo code will work on all ticket types.)

VIP Tickets to Bluegrass in Heaven are also being improved from what was offered at the first festival. With a limited number of tickets being sold, a Bluegrass in Heaven VIP Ticket will get festival goers access to the festival, a custom Bluegrass in Heaven lanyard and badge, preferred seating in the balcony of Silver Bay YMCA’s Auditorium, appetizers and two drink tickets for beer and wine each night of evening performances, and access to a one-hour appetizer function meet and greet with performers (a performer passport will be included for signatures.)


Silver Bay YMCA’s  VP of Sales and Marketing, Lindsey Butler, spoke to the festival’s success.

“The first Bluegrass in Heaven music festival was a real success,” Butler said. “With national recognition of our festival on various websites and through publications, we were able to draw people locally and from out of town to see world-class talent. We’re so excited about the second annual Bluegrass in Heaven festival and look forward to welcoming guests and great talent.”

The festival organizers are looking forward to bringing the festival back for another year with a new and exciting lineup of artists such as Grammy-nominee Della Mae, and IBMA winners Darin and Brooke Aldridge.

Terry Baker, the artist procurement lead for the 2024 Bluegrass in Heaven festival stated, “The lineup for Bluegrass in Heaven 2024 includes bonafide stars, like four-time Female Vocalist of the Year Brooke Aldridge, and the Grammy-nominated all-female string band, Della Mae.”

In addition to a new lineup, festival organizers are also making other changes to improve the festival experience such as offering a discount to festival goers who buy their tickets in advance.

“We are so proud of what was accomplished last year that we wanted to give those in the ‘know’ an opportunity to get an exclusive discount,” Silver Bay YMCA VP of Programs, Uriah Rodriguez stated. “By purchasing your tickets early, not only do you guarantee your spot for an unforgettable bluegrass experience, but you also enjoy exclusive savings. Don’t miss out on the chance to join us for a premier festival featuring top acts – reserve your seat today and make memories that will last a lifetime.”
