Private shows, fun challenges to win tickets, easy access to the festival stages - what more could you ask for?!

Camping is the most fun way to experience the festival. Stake out your campsite, pitch a tent and let the fun-filled weekend begin! The campground in Telluride Town Park opens on Thursday morning and is only steps away from the Main Stage and Main Street.  

One of the best camping perks: the Campground Sessions! These are additional shows in the Town Park campground exclusive to campers only (camping wristband required for entrance). Artists will be playing in the camping area each day of the festival. These performances in the intimate campground setting are some of the most memorable shows of the weekend! The Campground Sessions artist lineup will be announced later this spring, check back for details.

The 22nd Annual Blues & Brews Festival is also the host of the 8th Annual Coolest Campsite Challenge. No registration required - anyone camping at the festival has the opportunity to win some amazing prizes just by having a creative campsite. Judges roam through the campground in search of the coolest campsite during the festival weekend and the winners will be announced Sunday morning on the Main Stage.

Finally, if you'd like to camp at the festival this year but don’t want the hassle of traveling with all of your equipment, you're in luck! Our official gear partner, Project Shelter, is a social enterprise selling tents and gear that you can pick up when you arrive. By purchasing equipment through the festival, you'll save both money and a stop to a big-box store. Afterwards, any unwanted gear is donated to refugees and disaster relief organizations. Skip the store, pay less, and support the community! To read more about Project Shelter, click here.
