Telluride, Colorado – The 5th Annual RIDE Festival, to be held at Telluride Town Park, is proud to announce its initial artist lineup. Since 2012, The RIDE Festival has featured renowned rock and roll icons along with some of current music’s finest emerging talent. The RIDE Festival merges seamlessly into its stunning mountain setting for a world-class, weekend-long destination music experience.

The RIDE Festival 2016 welcomes headliner PEARL JAM who will be performing in Telluride for the first time on July 9. Fellow rockers Cage The Elephant will headline on July 10.

Joining them on the bill are The Temperance Movement, Jerry Joseph & The Jackmormons, HoneyHoney and others. The list of announced artists is below with more incredible talent still to be revealed.

The NightRIDE – when music spills off the Main Stage from Telluride’s Town Park into local venues along Main Street for late night shows – will return again this year. The Sheridan Opera House, The Roma Bar and additional local venues will host intimate performances on Friday, Saturday and Sunday night. NightRIDE shows are free to RIDE Festival ticket-holders (first come, first served), except for The Sheridan Opera House. Stay tuned for The NightRIDE lineup and schedule at
