This Weekend in Festivals (Tellurde Jazz, LOHI, and CrestFest)

Along with all of the shows this weekend, we’ve got three festivals to hit up as well. First off,

Telluride Jazz Festival begins this Friday, August 3rd and runs through the 5th. Featured at the festival are Victor Wooten Band, Funky Meters, Soulive, Roy Hargrove, Marco Benevento and more. The festival will be held in Telluride Town Park. There are many ticket options available here. Three day park passes go for $142.


Crestone Music Festival AKA CrestFest at the Challenger Golf Course in Crestone, CO also runs August 3-5. It’s kind of far from the Denver/Boulder area we usually cover events for but it’s perfect for Pueblo, Springs, and other southern Coloradans. The highlight of the weekend out there is without a doubt indie acoustic quintet Elephant Revival from Nederland. There are also a handful of ticket options available for this one here. And, weekend passes are $65.

Finally, we’ve got the LOHI Luau Music Festival in Denver at Highland Tap and Burger. This is a one day, all day festival on Saturday, August 4th. The luau themed event will feature the likes of The Motet, Particle, Air Dubai, The Heavy Pets, Dubskin, Euforquestra and more. Tickets are available for a mere $25 and are available here. And god damn that is a really good deal for all those bands.

 

Enjoy the shows!
