The deadline for early bird ticket prices to MerleFest 2010, presented by Lowe's, has been extended to Tuesday, April 6, at 5 p.m.
That is the last day to purchase four-day and three-day tickets at the early bird price, representing an average 10 percent discount.
Ticket purchases can be made on the web at http://www.merlefest.org or by calling 1-800-343-7857. "As always, there are no hidden fees or surcharges on MerleFest tickets," a spokesperson for the Wilkes County event said.
Free parking is available, and children 12 years of age and younger are admitted free to the festival when accompanied by an adult with paid admission.
MerleFest 2010 will celebrate its 23rd year from April 29- May 2, 2010 on the campus of Wilkes Community College.
With more than 100 acts performing on 15 stages during the course of the event, MerleFest is an excellent entertainment value, the spokesperson said.
A complete list of confirmed performers is available at http://www.merlefest.org. As in previous years, the list of performers fits the "traditional plus" definition offered by Doc Watson when describing the rich musical diversity that is a hallmark of the event, the spokesperson said.
MerleFest was founded in 1988 in memory of Eddy Merle Watson as a fundraiser for Wilkes Community College and a celebration of "traditional plus" music.
