Every 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,'. Is this your festival?
I like the pick-a-day approach, and Saturday is always good. Ryan Adams will play solo at Telluride this year just after Yonder Mountain plays their late Saturday afternoon set, and just before Sam Bush Band takes the stage. And after that, Leftover Salmon will play the crowd into Sunday.
Like the evanescent full moon, everything as we know it is temporary. A famous songwriter once sang about change: it is universal, pervasive, inevitable—but it also heralds the opportunity for artistry and reinvention. That writer was, of course, the late David Bowie, one of the many icons—along with the original Fred Shellman Memorial Stage—to take their final bow since we last convened together here in Telluride. While we honor what has been, we are also uniquely poised to celebrate what is yet to come. This weekend our Festivarian community christens the brand-new, larger-than-life Town Park Stage. As you explore this enchanting valley, please remember to tread lightly. Fill your reusable bottle at our water stations, your pockets with microtrash, and be mindful of the waste you generate. Then in the heat of the afternoon, cool off with a refreshing shrub cocktail, or try a Citradelic or Heavy Melon. And once again, Summer Bliss will be on tap, only at Telluride, especially for you.
