Telluride Bluegrass Festival nearly sold out

The Fred Shellman stage in Telluride town park during the 2010 Telluride Bluregrass Festival. This year is almost and will be a sellout.



People itching to attend the Telluride Bluegrass Festival set for June 16–19 may be out of luck.

For the first time in the 38-year history of the popular music event, it is nearly sold out ... by Friday, April 1.

Brian Eyster of Planet Bluegrass, primary organizer for the event, confirmed that the festival has sold all its four-day passes, all its camping passes and all its limited single-day passes for Friday, June 17, Saturday, June 18, and Sunday, June 19.

That means the only tickets still available are the $65 single-day passes for Thursday, June 16.

This would be the earliest the festival has ever sold out of its four-day passes, Eyster said.

This year’s lineup likely was the reason for the early push for tickets, he said. Among the artists performing are Robert Plant, Sarah McLachlan, Mumford & Sons, The Decemberists, Sam Bush and Emmylou Harris.

Nearly half of the tickets have been sold to people in Colorado, but Eyster noted that ticket orders have come in from all 50 states and as far away as Norway and Australia.

Although event organizers are thrilled ticket sales are going well, it is bittersweet because organizers are concerned long-time fans of the festival will be without tickets, Eyster said.

He added that people who don’t get the tickets they want may have options. They will need to watch the Telluride tickets board at http://www.festivarian.com. And, if a significant number of refunds are requested, Planet Bluegrass will release those refunded tickets at noon on Tuesdays at “Returned Ticket Resale” at shop.bluegrass.com.
