Music Festivals, Telluride
Concierge.com's insider take:
The two biggest wingdings of Telluride's festival-packed calendar induce a lot of dancing in Tevas. The Telluride Bluegrass Festival takes place mid-June, during four of the longest days of the year, and a couple of weeks before the daily afternoon thunderstorms kick in. Expect the likes of bigger acts such as Barenaked Ladies and Bonnie Raitt, as well as less organized acts, including roving bands of banjos. The other biggie is the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival, which is exactly what the name says. It takes place each September with acts like Willie Nelson and the Flaming Lips.
