Iris Dement, Jerry Douglas, Del McCoury, Hayes Carll, and lots more. The lineup for the 2013 Fayetteville Roots Festival is almost complete, and earlier this week, two ticket packages for the event officially went on sale.

The festival is set for Aug. 22-25 at various locations around town, and 3-day ticket packages range from $149-199 this year.

“Friends of the Festival” VIP Pass prices have been reduced by about $50 this year to $199, but still include reserved, premium seating for shows at Walton Arts Center as well as late night shows at George’s. The pass also includes tickets to a preview party and a meal at the Garner farm on Thursday night, and meals on Friday and Saturday at the Walton Arts Center.

A regular 3-day festival pass also went on sale earlier this week for $149, and includes access to the Walton Arts Center and George’s shows on Friday and Saturday night (including festival meals), as well as the Sunday night closing party at George’s.

Single-day passes will go on sale May 15.
