The Telluride Bluegrass Festival is always scheduled for the weekend closest to the summer solstice to let concertgoers take advantage of the longest day of the year. And take advantage of it they do, with as many as 18,000 people showing up over the weekend to hear the music of bluegrass, country, and country-rock all-stars. And even though much of this music finds its roots in the Appalachian Mountains, it feels at home in the majestic Rockies. Since the Telluride Bluegrass Festival’s first concert in 1974, bluegrass legends like Bela Fleck and Alison Krauss and the Union Station, as well as household names like Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson, have let their music echo off the beautiful mountains that surround the stage. The festival also features workshops on performing bluegrass music and “nightgrass” concerts for those who didn’t get enough of their favorites artists during the long daylight hours. One unique aspect of the Telluride Bluegrass Festival is its battle of the bands in which a dozen up-and-comers compete to perform on the main stage. It can be a big break for an unknown performer, and past winners like The Dixie Chicks have gone on to award-winning careers. Diehard and casual fans alike will enjoy welcoming the Colorado summer at this family friendly event. Score with TicketCity - the place to go for Telluride Bluegrass Festival tickets.

Telluride Bluegrass Festival at Planet Bluegrass
Planet Bluegrass is a mountain compound located in a ski resort just outside the town of Telluride, Colorado. Camping is available so close to the event that concertgoers can hear the music from their tents, but for those staying in town, shuttle buses can take you to the concert grounds. As a tourist town, Telluride has plenty of amenities to serve out-of-towners, including a range of hotels, restaurants, and other lodging options. The scenery surrounding the festival is astounding, with lush-green mountains and snow-capped peaks towering above the stage, and the thin air at nearly 9,000 feet above sea level crisply carries music all the way to the back row and beyond.
