Telluride Bluegrass Festival 2024

June 20 - June 23

For more than five decades, the legendary Telluride Bluegrass Festival has been a bucket-list destination for not just string band fans but live music devotees the world over, not to mention the musicians who’ve graced the Telluride stage over all of these years.

In fact, Sam Bush is making his 50th appearance at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival this year—June 20-23, 2024 in Telluride, Colorado—having only missed the inaugural festival in 1974. Show-stopping country sensation Charley Crockett, festival favorites The Infamous Stringdusters, and the legendary Lyle Lovett join Bush as headliners for this year’s event, joining repeat visitors like Leftover Salmon, Sierra Hull, Sierra Ferrell, Punch Brothers, and many more on stage in Telluride’s Town Park. First-timers at this year’s Telluride Bluegrass Festival Include Ocie Elliott, Madison Cunningham, Ripe, SistaStrings, Langan Band, Po Ramblin’ Boys, Danny Paisley, Ripe, and Larry & Joe. A full daily lineup can be found below.

“We’re so excited to be celebrating Sam’s 50th Bluegrass appearance,” says Planet Bluegrass’ Grace Barrett. “He’s an integral part of this festival’s history and what it means to people who trek all the way to the San Juans every June. His legacy brings new folks into our world every year. In addition to doing everything we can to commemorate his special anniversary, we’re also really looking forward to welcoming some first-time-TBF-ers to the Main Stage.”

For some lucky fans, an extremely limited number of tickets are still available right here, and for those lucky enough to have gotten their Telluride Bluegrass tickets already, there are still some camping passes available for Lawson Hill Camping and Mary E Ilium which can be found here.

About Telluride Bluegrass Festival: Founded in 1974 and occurring annually during the summer solstice, Telluride Bluegrass has been inviting music fans to the historic mining town in the San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado for 4 days of adventurous acoustic music in the stunning Telluride box canyon for 50 years.

Since its early years, the unique genre of “Telluride Bluegrass” has embraced a diverse family of artists including Sam Bush, Robert Plant, Mumford & Sons, Brandi Carlile, Norah Jones, Jason Mraz, Greensky Bluegrass, Emmylou Harris, and many of the world’s most virtuosic acoustic instrumentalists – the majority of whom have returned to the festival for 25+ years. With music on the main stage, intimate workshop performances at Elks Park, late-night indoor NightGrass concerts, and pickin’ in campgrounds and condos ‘til dawn, Telluride Bluegrass is the “granddaddy of the modern festival circuit” (Relix). Telluride Bluegrass is presented and produced by Planet Bluegrass.

About Planet Bluegrass: For over 30 years, Planet Bluegrass has been redefining the musical festival by creating exceptional experiences that protect the planet through environmental leadership and a strong community.

Fiercely and decidedly independent, their three festivals make a unique musical mark: each takes place in breathtaking natural Colorado environments, each features the world’s finest musicians and songwriters, and each embraces a “Leave No Trace” ethic that defines Planet Bluegrass as a leader in Sustainable Festivation. Planet Bluegrass presents Telluride Bluegrass, Rockygrass, and Rocky Mountain Folks Festival, bucket list musical gatherings for artists and fans alike. Planet Bluegrass is invested in the next generation of songwriters and musicians as evidenced by Rockygrass Academy and Song School.
