It’s no secret that Telluride is a Southwest hub for all things art, film, and music, so it shouldn’t surprise you that yet another larger-than-life festival will be gracing its stages this month.
From July 12-14, music lovers will flock to the mountain town for The RIDE Festival, an event that’s been entirely dedicated to rock ‘n’ roll for eight years in a row.
The festival is divided into two parts: The RIDE Festival has all the shows happening at the Fred Shellman Memorial Stage, while The NightRIDE is the after-dark acts performed in venues across town, which means visitors can experience the nightlife of Telluride and musical performances in smaller, more intimate settings. The following is the lineup for the 8th annual festival.
