“The 2023 artist lineup ranks as one of the best in our 29 year legacy,” said Festival Founder Steve Gumble. “Not only is Bonnie Raitt a legendary artist, but she is on fire right now after a massive ‘Song of the Year’ win at the Grammys. We are thrilled to welcome her back to our stage. Undoubtedly, some of the best showmen of the modern-era, we’re really looking forward to the Telluride debut of The Roots. Artists like The Revivalists, Christone “Kingfish” Ingram and The Teskey Brothers will be a top-notch showcase of the future of the blues, while mainstays like The Robert Cray Band and Anders Osborne will deliver the familiar sounds our loyal attendees love. I can’t forget to mention how highly anticipated The Word’s performance is for us. The blues super band is made of a few of our favorite artists including Luther Dickinson, Cody Dickinson and Robert Randolph.”

Artists will perform on three stages under towering 13,000-foot Rocky Mountain peaks as the fall foliage season begins to brighten the landscape.

To complement the music, the festival proudly boasts a wide variety of local and regional food and craft vendors, cozy late night club shows, stand-up comedy performances and luxurious VIP and Super VIP experiences.

Attendees can also enjoy an assortment of special events throughout the festival weekend including the fundraiser 5K Race, free Yoga, group hikes, group mountain bike rides, the Telluride Blues Challenge, intimate Campground Session performances and more.

Additionally, 23 breweries will attend for a Brewers Showcase featuring five tasting sessions, a showcase of Colorado beer presented by the Colorado Brewers Guild, a multi-course beer pairing dinner and more.
