After pushing last year's festival back to September due to COVID, Owensboro's ROMP Festival returns to its summer timeframe with this year's event scheduled to take place June 22nd through 25th at Yellow Creek Park. As always, this year's event will feature four days full of fantastic bluegrass music for you to enjoy, and now we know exactly who will be playing that fantastic bluegrass music with the release of the festival's full lineup.

Organizers released the lineup late Tuesday night through their Facebook page. In total, 26 artists and bands will take the stage over the course of those four days to fill the Owensboro air with the sweet sounds of bluegrass like only they can. One of which being the one and only Marty Stuart on Saturday night. Let's take a look at who else is set to perform.
