Colorado loves themselves some Widespread Mother Fucking Panic. They’ve got the record for the most amount of consecutively sold out shows at Red Rocks (and they’ll notch three more sold out shows there this June taking them up to 48 sell-outs in a row). But just a couple weeks later Panic will be back in Colorado and in less time than it would take to listen to Red Rocks recordings you can drive to Telluride to see them again and hear the loudest ruckus to come of Telluride’s box canyon since last year’s Ride Festival.
Now in its fourth year, Ride Festival is quickly becoming the gold standard of Americana/rock festivals in the state, and the late-night shows that happen in town show that Telluride can appreciate reverb as much as it appreciates the twang of a banjo.
- You’re going there to see: Widespread Panic, Gov’t Mule, North Mississippi Allstars
- You’re going to come home talking about: Dorothy, Jeffrey Foucault, Ayron Jones and the Way
Denver to Town Park
6 hours, 12 minutes
Camping: Of course. It’s Town Park in Telluride, but it’s also Panic in Telluride, so it’s sold out.
