Added officials from SBG Productions in a lengthy statement, “We are working closely with health officials, while monitoring the success of the vaccines and keeping an eye on the changing state of live events for this summer. When we have a clearer picture of what events will look like and receive a ‘green light’ from officials, we will provide additional updates.” Organizers of the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival have confirmed that the three-day celebration will take place at Colorado’s Telluride Town Park on Sept. 17-19, 2021, “but only if it is safe to do so.”
In turn, tickets for the 2021 Telluride Blues & Brews will not go on sale until the event is definitely a-go.
“For those who have rolled over your 2020 tickets we are grateful for your faith in our festival and no action is needed at this time – your tickets are in our system and will soon be re-issued with the 2021 dates,” officials added.
Before the pandemic put the music industry on ice, the 2020 edition of Telluride Blues & Brews was set to feature Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Brittany Howard, Buddy Guy and more. Organizers hope to confirm a “similar lineup” for 2021.

SBG Productions wishes you a happy, healthy and strong start to 2021 and hope this update finds you well. We want to start by thanking everyone for the overwhelming support through 2020. We would also like to thank all the partners, artists, and loyal fans who joined us on our YouTube and Facebook channels last September for the virtual festival fundraiser. Your generous donations helped support our non-profit partners Music Maker Relief Foundation and the Telluride Food Bank. If you haven’t already watched the virtual festival, each night’s stream is still available, click here to watch. Go check out the shows and consider buying some merchandise to support us.
Like many of you, we are eager for the day when it is safe to return and gather for live music and events. We miss the hair-raising performances, beautiful summer days in the mountains, countless smiles and much more that words simply can’t describe.
Currently, we are planning to celebrate the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival in Telluride Town Park on September 17-19, 2021, but only if it is safe to do so. We are working closely with health officials, while monitoring the success of the vaccines and keeping an eye on the changing state of live events for this summer. When we have a clearer picture of what events will look like and receive a “green light” from officials, we will provide additional updates.
Tickets for the 2021 Telluride Blues & Brews Festival will not go on sale until we know it will be safe to host an event. Until that time, all other festival announcements will be paused. For those who have rolled over your 2020 tickets we are grateful for your faith in our festival and no action is needed at this time – your tickets are in our system and will soon be re-issued with the 2021 dates. Most of the artists scheduled to perform have expressed interest in this year’s dates, likely leaving a similar lineup in place for 2021.
Thank you for your overwhelming support through this complicated time. We miss you and still believe our community and festival will return stronger than ever.
Stay healthy, stay safe and we hope to see you soon.
Special Thanks to SBG Productions
