Telluride, Co. – Today, The Ride Festival releases its initial artist lineup for the festival’s 3rd year at Colorado’s breathtaking Telluride Town Park on July 12-13, 2014. The Ride Fest has quickly garnered a reputation among music fans for its thoughtful performance curation - hand-picking rootsy, rocking talent whose music flawlessly compliments the festival’s stunning Telluride setting.
Folk-rock Grammy winners Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros and Austin-based alt-rockers Spoon top the lineup for The 2014 Ride Festival. Also announced to perform are JJ Grey & Mofro, Joan Osborne, Lucero, The Hold Steady, Vintage Trouble, Rival Sons, Delta Rae, The Wood Brothers, Reignwolf, White Denim, Brother and Bones, Harlem Gospel Choir, The Delta Saints, and The Cold Stares, with additional artists still to be announced.
Since its debut in 2012, The Ride Festival has filled a unique niche in Colorado - and among U.S. festival offerings - as host to a carefully curated Americana/rock lineup offering world-class musical acts and introducing new, soon-to-break talent. In addition to the performances on the Main Stage in Telluride Town Park, music spills out onto Telluride’s charming Main Street for late night showcases by emerging talent from a variety of genres.
The Ride Festival’s close proximity to the many outdoor activities that Telluride and Southern Colorado have to offer make the festival a unique destination event. Attendees can enjoy hiking, biking, hot springs, and so much more – all in a truly majestic setting. Rounding out The Ride Fest’s authentic mountain culture – The Ride Fest helps benefit Telluride’s beloved KOTOfm, one of the country’s last remaining music radio stations that is entirely listener supported and non-commercial.
