very June Festivarians and musicians from around the world make their annual pilgrimage to the historic mountain town of Telluride in the San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado. It's an unforgettable 4 days of music, mountains, and magic in the breathtaking box canyon at 8,750 feet elevation.

The 43rd Annual Telluride Bluegrass is held the weekend closest to the Summer Solstice -- the longest day of the year which begins the Colorado summer. It's a magical time of sun and light, when the the high country of Colorado puts away its skis and grabs hiking boots, guitars, and a low-back festival chair to take in "Bluegrass."

The 43rd Annual festival promises a magical four days of only-in-Telluride performances. Beloved Festival veterans and inspiring new talent. The Telluride royalty of virtuosic bluegrass superpickers, soulful songwriters, and some of the biggest stars in the rootsy Americana landscape and well beyond.

The festival is built around the many artists that have defined the Telluride Bluegrass sound, as the weekend is sprinkled with inspired sets from Peter Rowan, Béla Fleck, Jerry Douglas, Chris Thile, Tim O'Brien, and of course the "King of Telluride" Sam Bush. These artists come together for the festival's epic set from the Telluride House Band.
