A Rockin' Good Time in the Mountains

The Ride Festival may be one of Telluride's newer festivals, but it's already made its mark on the music scene. The festival curators handpick raw rock talent who complement the stunning backdrop of Telluride. Past performers include Pearl Jam, Beck, Sheryl Crow, Grace Potter, Cage the Elephant, Widespread Panic, The Lumineers, Cake, The Wood Brothers, Ben Harper and more. 


Can't get enough of the action during the day? NightRide shows take place once the sun goes down at local venues around Telluride. These small venues give rockers a chance to get up close and personal with their favorite bands after seeing them own the Main Stage. Venues include The Moon at O'Bannon's, The Liberty, Wood Ear and the Sheridan Opera House.
