RANCHO DEL RIO — On Tuesday, Campout for the Cause will announce the full event lineup of live music, yoga and lifestyle workshops, as well as open registration for the festival’s inaugural Stand-up Paddle Colorado Invitational and release single-day festival tickets. Tuesday also marks the end of $99 early-bird ticketing, when $119 full event and camping passes will be available for purchase.

The three-day roots music and lifestyle festival is presented annually by Bonfire Entertainment and is set to be held a week later this year, Friday, June 3, through Sunday, June 5, at Rancho del Rio near Bond. Early entry is available on Thursday, June 2, for $20 for three-day pass holders. The venue, located on the banks of the Colorado River, is about an hour and 15 minutes from Frisco.

Headlining artists on this year’s main stage include Paper Bird, Head for the Hills, Trout Steak Revival, The California Honeydrops, Drunken Hearts, Bonfire (Dub) and The Lil’ Smokies. Additional music sets and late-night jam sessions will be held at the ambient Soapbox Lounge overlooking the Colorado River. The Thursday evening early entry features an exclusive campfire family jam with The Lil’ Smokies.

The inaugural Stand-Up Paddle Colorado Invitational events include a Colorado River Surf Co. Expression Session at Gore Wave at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 4 — a free community surf session, welcome to everyone. On Sunday, June 5, races begin at 10 a.m. with the 4-mile downriver Stand-Up Paddle Colorado Invitational State Bridge Sprint. At 2 p.m., competitors will race the Flatwater Challenge in a 1-mile upriver and downriver figure-8 course.

SUP competition registration opens on May 10 and is $40 for both races on Sunday, June 5. A specially priced $60 two-day camping and festival pass will be available for SUP Invitational competitors.

All of the net proceeds from the event benefit this year’s Campout nonprofit partners Big Heart Big Hands, which raises money for mountain rescue organizations; the Education Foundation of Eagle County; and the Children’s Global Alliance, which offers large-scale volunteer opportunities for children ages 12 to 16.
