The Telluride Jazz Festival returns for its 41st year on August 4-6, 2017 with a fresh look to usher in a new era for the Festival in the world-famous mountain town of Telluride, Colorado.
Located in the legendary outdoor venue in the breathtaking mountain town of Telluride, Colorado, the 41st Telluride Jazz Festival is a three day music festival taking place August 4-6, 2017. Combining a rich tradition of preserving the American Jazz art form with an unmatched aesthetic experience, new event organizers SBG Productions bring a new era to the Telluride Jazz Festival, showcasing three days and nights of world class jazz, funk, soul, folk gospel, and more with a goal of community engagement and student education.
Unmatched scenery and a musically-charged local culture accompanied by a wide variety of special events including artist workshops, daily winery and distillery tastings, panel discussions, children's activities, cozy late night club shows, and much more will round out the weekend celebration. The historical mining town of Telluride sits nestled in a scenic box canyon at 8,750 feet, surrounded by 13,000 foot peaks, and is a prized gem of the Rocky Mountains.
The intimate festival format offers a unique chance to experience the openness of Telluride Town Park, with a once-in-a-lifetime soundtrack provided by internationally acclaimed artists, Grammy Award winners, cutting edge innovators, rare supergroups, and some of the best student bands in the country.
The core audience of loyal patrons, dedicated locals, and curious travelers creates a relaxed vibe where laying back in your chair or letting your hair down to dance are equally encouraged. Great food vendors and microbrews on tap cover the basic amenities, while additional free wine and spirit tastings from local vineyards and distilleries provide a sample of Colorado’s renowned craftsmanship.
At night, the music moves into historic, cozy clubs located within walking distance of Town Park, where Jazz After Dark late night performances present memorable collaborations and up-close viewing of the artists.
On Sunday, homage is paid to the influence of the city of New Orleans with a Second Line Parade down Telluride's Main Street. Colorful floats, costumes, beads and decorations are all welcome as attendees join in on the march through town.
The 2017 artist lineup includes Mavis Staples, Macy Gray, funky METERS with Special Guest Dr. John, Lee Fields & The Expressions, Miles Mosley + The West Coast Get Down, The Suffers, fatsO, Vaud and the Villains, Davina and the Vagabonds, and many more! Click here for the full lineup.
