TRACK #1: KEYSTONE BACON AND BOURBON FESTIVAL: JUNE 27 – 28, 2020
To start off our soundtrack to summer, we are celebrating ten years of bacon and bourbon with the best cover bands to help us rock out in style! The 10th Anniversary of the Bacon and Bourbon Festival wouldn’t be complete without the leading all female AC/DC tribute band, Hell’s Belles. The ladies are back again on Saturday to celebrate 10 years and will be joined by another great cover band, Queen Nation on Sunday. It is a weekend full of six different covers bands from local talent to national tribute bands. So come rock out with us while devouring bacon and sipping on some of the top bourbons in the country. See the full free Bacon and Bourbon concert line-up for yourself and bring your rock hands this June!
TRACK #2: KEYSTONE WINE AND JAZZ FESTIVAL: JULY 11 – 12, 2020
What pairs better with over 300 varieties of wine over two days? Free live jazz concerts from 8 different jazz artists set at the base of a world class resort in the Rocky Mountains. Jessy J will be bringing down the house on Saturday with her sizzling beats, samba rhythms, sensual melodies and contemporary jazz. Don’t worry your local favorite, Dotsero, hailing from Denver are back Sunday! Dotsero’s contemporary jazz on the edge is full of energy and spontaneity that few artists have been able to match. You are going to want to buy a weekend pass so you don’t miss any of this full jazz line-up. Bring your wine glass to the stage and join us at Keystone to sip and twirl!
TRACK #3: KEYSTONE 24TH ANNUAL BLUEGRASS AND BEER FESTIVAL: AUGUST 1 – 2, 2020
You may come for the beer but you’ll stay for the music. Fans of the long running Keystone Bluegrass and Beer Festival come to taste 100’s of craft beers from 40+ breweries. Fans become loyalists because of the fourteen bluegrass bands that grace the three stages throughout the festival grounds. Wood Belly won the Telluride Bluegrass Band Competition in 2018 with their versatility, seamless harmonies and dynamic instrumentation. Accompanying the Wood Belly’s on Saturday is Sierra Hull, a singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist that has hit more milestones than many musicians accomplish in a lifetime. Sunday will not disappoint, with two bluegrass bands hailing killer harmonies. Pixie and the Partygrass Boys will grace the River Run Village for the first time ever and will be accompanied by power house Della Mae. Book a condo and spend the weekend because you will need two days to take in 14 free bluegrass shows while tasting hundreds of beers!
