With more acts to be announced, the July 13-14 event at Telluride’s Town Park produced by Telluride Productions, Big Head Todd & The Monsters and KOTOfm will also host Cake, Drive-By Truckers, Steve Earle, Buddy Miller and Son Volt, with more acts to be announced.

But there’s more to The Ride Festival than just music.  After all, this is The Rockies we’re talking about, where you can check out the hot springs, hike, bicycle, or just soak up that great mountain culture.

Plus, your inner music fan will be pleased to know that the festival supports a good cause in that proceeds help benefit KOTOfm, one of the last remaining listener-supported music stations.
