With the return of live music in the summer of 2021, The RIDE Festival is excited to announce its lineup with plans for a completely unique experience in a variety of venues around Telluride, July 2nd - 11th. For 10 days, the town will be filled with rock ‘n’ roll and a diverse collection of artists who will bring their high-energy music to one of the most scenic valleys on the planet!

This summer, festival goers will have the opportunity to see some of their favorite musicians in more intimate settings at a time when everyone is ready to get back to dancing with old friends, and make some new ones. Attendees will also be able to explore the town of Telluride hopping from club to club enjoying bands on 7 stages…no gates, no port-o-potties, just exhilarating performances in venues with limited capacity.

World-renowned rockers Rival Sons will be hosting both weekends, plus a full week of music throughout the town. Music fans can attend either of the 3-day weekends, or purchase passes for the entire 10-day run! Bands will be performing residencies, playing 2 – 4 night stands featuring a lineup that includes Warren Haynes (2 nights), Citizen Cope (3 nights), Matt Berninger of The National (2 nights), Black Pistol Fire (2 nights), Colorado natives Rose Hill Drive (4 nights), Big Something (4 nights) and many others.

Tickets are limited, for those 21 & over, and all venues will be presenting the artists with full compliance and capacities as approved by local authorities with the safety of the musicians, fans and staff as their top priority. Attendees can take advantage of all the outdoor activities, rafting, hiking, mountain biking, climbing, available in the “Festival Capital of The Rockies” while enjoying multiple sets of world class music during the day and well into the night.

Tickets will go on sale June 3, 2021 at 10:00 am MT at RideFestival.com. The RIDE will return to the Town Park stage in 2022 and continue its tradition of gathering the best rock bands and emerging artists to present another memorable alpine music experience.
