The "Queen and King of Telluride" will keep watching their thrones as Emmylou Harris returns to the Telluride Bluegrass Festival for the fourteenth year, and Sam Bush headlines the popular festival for the forty-second time. The annual festival announced its initial lineup of artists who will take the stage June 16-19, 2016, with "many more" musicians still to be announced. A few highlights of the initial lineup include John Prine, local veterans Leftover Salmon and a special reunion of Bela Fleck & the Flecktones.
Four-day passes to the fest sold out within thirty minutes on sale, but some single-day passes are still available.
