ELLNORA | The Guitar Festival 2019 Dates Announced


February 2019

ELLNORA | The Guitar Festival at Krannert Center—an internationally recognized, three-day event deemed “one of the world’s most forward-thinking guitar festivals” by Fretboard Journal—has emerged as a favorite destination for musicians and fans from around the world. Past ELLNORA festivals have featured artists such as Buddy Guy, Ani DiFranco, Derek Trucks, Jeff Tweedy, John Scofield, Jerry Douglas, Lulo Reinhardt, Punch Brothers, Bill Frisell, Vernon Reid, Richard Thompson, Kaki King, Andy Summers, The National, Mark Stewart, Valerie June, Los Lobos, and the North Mississippi Allstars, among many others.

ELLNORA 2019 will be the eighth incarnation of the biennial festival, which began life as the Wall to Wall Guitar Festival in 2005. The nearly round-the-clock event provides an unparalleled multi-genre experience, now emulated by other festivals worldwide, and features performances from a diverse lineup of distinguished music makers.

ELLNORA | The Guitar Festival 2019, a cornerstone event of the Center’s two-season 50th-anniversary celebration, will take place Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, September 5, 6, and 7. The festival schedule will be announced in late April with tickets on sale Saturday, July 20 at 10am at, by phone, and in person at the Krannert Center Ticket Office.
