Organised by EBMA (European Bluegrass Music Association) and the  Jam Hall association, this summer 2022 event will be hosted by the Bluegrass In La Roche Festival and is open to every... No, not open to everybody. If you are older than 16, sorry, too late for you!

If you never enjoyed the Bluegrass In La Roche Festival (La Roche Sur Foron, Haute-Savoie, France), you should consider it. Not only for the main stage concerts with great international stars, but also for the downtown concerts during the street festival, the jams, the international La Roche Bluegrass Workshop, the intimate concerts on the lunch scene.

Or just for the vibes on the festival site or downtown, the croziflette (pasta and Savoie cheese specialty), the vegan hamburger, the green Genepy beer or the blueberry one.
