WHERE: Telluride, Colorado

A bill of mostly jam bands play surrounded by picturesque mountain peaks in the laid-back ski town. "Out of the 90 different countries I've been to," B.B. King said in 2004, "I've never seen anything more beautiful than what you have here."
PRO TIP: Purchase a "Juke Joint Pass" to get into several downtown clubs long after the 9:30 p.m. festival curfew.
