Where: Telluride, Colorado - Elks Park Stage
When: 4 day festival, taking place in mid-June
Cost: Tickets are sold as 4-day passes, or you can purchase single day tickets. Just be sure to buy your camping or parking passes at the same time, as they are sold separately.
Details: Telluride is the ideal home for such a festival, as the entire town shuts down to non-local traffic in order to facilitate the event. You can park at the festival lots right outside of town, or if you wish to camp, there are campsites in several different locations within close proximity to the festival. Once inside the festival, seating is general admission, so bring a blanket, tarp, or lawn chair and take in the wonderful music.
The festival runs daily from 10am to around midnight, but there is always something more going on. There are small workshops in the Elks Park stage in town, jam sessions, and late night "Nightgrass" concerts at several indoor venues in Telluride.
