Telluride Bluegrass: NightGrass Tickets + Schedule

Telluride Bluegrass: NightGrass Tickets + Schedule

The NightGrass schedule for Telluride Bluegrass 2018 is posted here. Ticket info is below. Full lottery details are here.

For the 4th consecutive year, Telluride Bluegrass is selling NightGrass tickets via a 48-hour online lottery, which opens next week: April 17-18. 

People seeking tickets should list their 1st choice show – optionally, 2nd and 3rd choices too – for each day they are interested in attending. Telluride Bluegrass will randomly fill orders one day at a time.

There is a limit of one lottery entry per credit card. Participants will only be charged if Bluegrass is able to fill at least one of the ticket requests.

A few of the highlights of the 2018 NightGrass:

• A special Bluegrass Eve celebration with Dierks Bentley & the Travelin’ McCourys at the Telluride Conference Center.

That event is going to be something really special. A huge thanks to Planet Bluegrass’s friends in Yonder Mountain for sliding over from their Kick-Off show this year to make room for this very special Dierks Bentley show.

I’m With Her: Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz and Aoife O’Donovan play the Sheridan on Saturday night. The trio is returning to the venue that initially inspired the ladies to collaborate four years ago. Their debut See You Around is one of the most acclaimed albums of 2018.

• One of the most exciting young bands in bluegrass, The Lil Smokies, return to Telluride to play the Moon after winning the band contest in 2015.  (Bluegrass did not have room on the Main Stage for them this year, so be sure to catch the group at NightGrass.)

• Telluride Bluegrass welcomes a few new artists to NightGrass: The Last Revel (making their only Bluegrass appearance); Phoebe Hunt & the Gatherers (this six-piece band is magical); and The Wood Brothers –though they all grew up in Boulder, CO, this will be their first Telluride Bluegrass.

• And of course, Bluegrass is thrilled to welcome back many of the bands that have defined NightGrass over the past decade: Yonder Mountain String Band (their Friday Sheridan is the longest-running NightGrass tradition); Greensky Bluegrass; Leftover Salmon; The Infamous Stringdusters (recent Grammy winners!); and Punch Brothers (playing their Sunday night closing set at the Sheridan).
