NedFest, Nederland, Colorado’s annual music festival announced last week a limited number of “Early Bird” tickets for next year’s 20th Annual Nederland Music and Arts Festival are now on sale.  Next year’s festival will be held August 24 – Aug. 26, 2018.


Get Ready for a Double Helping of Jorma at NedFest 2018 with Electric Hot Tuna featuring Steve Kimock on Saturday Night and Jorma Kaukonen Acoustic Sunday Night!

We have been trying to get Jorma up here for years and are soooo excited that we can finally host the man who Rolling Stone included in it’s list of the top one hundred guitarists of all time! Not only that, we have him with Electric Hot Tuna with Steve Kimock for a rockin’ Satuday night on August 25th and get to see him do an acoustic set on Sunday the 26th.

Though next year’s lineup has yet to be announced, this move is in an effort to give fans the ability to grab three day festival tickets at a deeply discounted price.  In fact the three-day festival tickets are now only $120, the lowest price of the season.

In it’s 20th year, NedFest promises to offer quality entertainment, art booths, local food and beer vendors an family friendly festival environment.  From the website, “NedFest is a 3-day music and arts festival in cool, beautiful Nederland, CO with local microbrews, camping, and tons of fun! Kids 12 and under are free with an adult and we have a kid’s tent and activities! NedFest is an all-volunteer organization hosted by the Peak to Peak Music Education Association, a 501c3 non-profit. All of our profits are used to support music education for local kids!”
