About Telluride Bluegrass Festival 4 day pass Telluride Tickets

Although as the name suggests, the festival majorly focuses on bluegrass music for most part, but it also includes musicians from all other genres in the lineup. The very first edition of Telluride Bluegrass Festival was staged back in 1974 in Telluride by its founders J. B. Matiotti, Fred Shellman, Kooster McAllister and John Herndon. All of the founders of the festival were also part of a band The Fall Creek Boys. The idea of the celebration in that region of Colorado goes back to more than hundred years when some of the earliest settlers of the land Ute Indians used Telluride as their meeting place and also a valley where they danced, feasted, partied and carried out other festive activities. The same tradition followed during the early mining days of the city when miners from far-fetched areas used to meet up in the city as well. Hence a year before the Telluride Blue Grass Festival was held; Scott Brown founded a Telluride Fourth of July Celebration festival, which became the main idea behind the formation of the festival.
It was in the Town Park where Davy Greever, Scott Brown, Burk Thompson, Ralph Parker and George Greenbank erected the stage for where the dances and live performances were meant to be carried out during the fourth of July Celebrations in 1973. They also entitled an area where the food and drink stalls were to held, and that exact area still continues to serve the same purpose even today. The festival on July 4, 1973 turned out to be a massive success, and all the attendees of the festival highly praised the music and the whole idea of the festivities. The success of that festival paved way for what is currently known as the Telluride Bluegrass Festival – the biggest celebration of bluegrass music in Telluride.
Over the years, the ownership of the festival has changed hands on five occasions. Currently Planet Bluegrass’ Craig Ferguson owns the festival and under his run the festival has been growing incredibly as the second venue has also been set In Lyons, due to massive head count that the festival has been receiving. The inaugural year of the festival was witnessed by more than a thousand attendees, and as of the moment the average number of audience members is set to 10,000.
