Blues and Brews Fes­ti­val

TEL­LURIDE

West of 105 Magazine - - Culture & Events -

If there is a more beau­ti­ful and per­fect set­ting for a mu­sic fes­ti­val, we haven't seen it (and frankly we're not even sure one ex­ists). Prac­ti­cally as fa­mous for its sum­mer and au­tumn fes­ti­vals as it is for its world-class ski­ing, Tel­luride is at the heart of the Colorado Rock­ies way up at 8,750 feet.

Con­trary to the name, this three-day fes­ti­val is a cel­e­bra­tion of all mu­sic, so you can ex­pect to hear plenty of blues but also funk, jam bands, indie, rock, gospel and soul in­clud­ing Robert Plant and the Sen­sa­tional Space Shifters, Ben Harper and Char­lie Mus­sel­white, Gov't Mule, and Booker T's Stax Re­vue among many oth­ers.

The fes­ti­val, but the fes­ti­val will also fea­ture the 2018 House of Brews, a can­vas-cov­ered tem­ple to beer (and cider) that will see Sierra Ne­vada joined by some lo­cal beer pur­vey­ors to pour all week­end long.

In the mid­dle of the fes­ti­val is the 2018 Grand Tast­ing. A three-hour hop-fu­eled ses­sion that will see 56 craft brew­eries bring over 170 beers for your tast­ing plea­sure. There will also be food and craft ven­dors, chil­dren's ac­tiv­i­ties and latenight shows among much more.
