The Ride Festival slated to make its debut in Telluride this August with Big Head Todd and the Monsters, Ben Harper and more

While America needs another festival like Denver needs another dispensary, this Triple-A-centric fest should be a big draw. The Ride Festival, which is being presented by Telluride's KOTO radio and headliner Big Head Todd & the Monsters, takes place in Telluride Town Park on Friday, August 25, and Saturday, August 26, and features Ben Harper, Los Lobos, JJ Grey & Mofro, the North Mississippi Allstars, the Wood Brothers, James McMurtry, David Lindley, Matthew Curry and local faves Nathaniel Rateliff and the Lumineers. Two-day passes ($87.50, plus fees) go on sale this Friday, May 25, at 10 a.m. If there's single day tickets left, those will go on sale next month.
