Campout for the Cause announces full schedule
RANCHO DEL RIO — Campout for the Cause, Rancho Del Rio’s annual weekend of concerts, camping, yoga and paddleboarding, has released its schedule for the three-day roots music and lifestyle festival, which will be held over Memorial Day weekend, May 21-24.
Campout will feature main stage performances by headliners that include Dustbowl Revival and Fruition on Friday (May 22); Elephant Revival and Grant Farm on Saturday (May 23); and Gregory Alan Isakov and Shook Twins on Sunday (May 24). The festival will also feature daily yoga, belly dancing, stand-up paddleboard clinics and SUP yoga each day. This year’s workshops include an introduction to hand drums and rhythm class led by drummer Jake Wolf. In addition, Heath Perry will teach two workshops on nutrition and the benefits of using healthy foods, herbs, brews and elixirs to cure the most common ailments.
Perry will also teach a permaculture paradigm workshop and will explain sustainable methods for growing, making and purchasing healthy and sustainable foods, personal hygiene and more.
New this year to the festival will be additional yoga classes led by local yoga instructors, as well as Gina Caputo, the Boulder-based teacher who is nationally known as “Yogini On The Loose.”
“We are expanding our workshops and our yoga offerings, and we are so excited to be bringing in great guest teachers like Gina,” said Scotty Stoughton, founder of Campout for the Cause and owner of Bonfire Entertainment. “Campout is all about going back to our roots. It’s a gathering that’s really anchored by authentic artists who create from the heart and understand the importance of community and giving back.”
Of the net proceeds, 100 percent will benefit the festival’s nonprofit partners: The Eagle Valley Land Trust, an organization that preserves over 7,000 acres of permanently conserved land in Eagle County; All Hands Volunteers, an organization that provides hands-on assistance to survivors of natural disasters around the world; and American Rivers, a nonprofit conservation organization dedicated to protecting and restoring America’s rivers.
Campout for the Cause is dedicated to being a zero-waste event with low environmental impact. The festival has stated a mission to Walk the Talk, a platform founded in the commitment to inspire lifestyle awareness and event sustainability, along with the intention to foster a community of responsible and respectful festival participants. This year, water bottles will be given to each patron upon arrival of the festival that can be refilled with free drinking water on-site.
Three-day, two-day (Saturday/Sunday), single day, early arrival and RV passes are on sale now. Patrons are encouraged to purchase tickets ahead of time, as tickets will not be available at the door.
