The Sunset Music Series is back for the 2022 summer season in Mountain Village! The Telluride Mountain Village Owners Association is very excited to announce the lineup for the 22nd Sunset Music Series held in Sunset Plaza. One of the most anticipated events of the summer celebrates its long-standing tradition of bringing music and entertainment to the San Juan Mountains.
2022’s Sunset Music Series brings eight spectacular shows to Mountain Village’s Sunset Plaza (on the lawn near Lift 1/The Chondola) located steps away from the gondola to Telluride. The family-friendly concerts start at 6 p.m., and as in prior years, the concerts are free and pet-friendly. Aptly named because of its west-facing orientation resulting in excellent sun exposure and fantastic sunset views, Sunset Plaza in Mountain Village sets the stage for one of the most spectacular music settings in the country. The Series kicks off July 13 and runs until August 10, 2022.
What’s new for 2022, is the addition of a few Thursday night performances with the goal of spreading out the crowds that enjoy the fine music and the merchants within Mountain Village.
“After a long hiatus, we look forward once again to having our members, guests and visitors come together for this special community event that is one of the great traditions in the region,” said Anton Benitez, TMVOA President and CEO.
The 2022 Sunset Music Series lineup is as follows:
● July 13 – Curley Taylor and Zydeco Trouble (Louisiana Zydeco) Learn more.
● July 20 – The Deer (Folk) Learn more.

“We are back! After almost three years, we get to bring music back to the Mountain Village Community and the region as a whole!” screamed Producer Teddy Errico. “The lineup is once again diverse and we are so happy we could put it together last minute.”
After a two-year hiatus due to COVID, TMVOA worked diligently with the Telluride Ski and Golf Company and the Telluride Society For Music to make the series a reality. The sense of community that the Series provides is like no other event in the Telluride Region.
Adds Heidi Stenhammer, the Administration and Operations Manager for TMVOA: “TMVOA, along with Telluride Society For Music, has established a tradition of bringing talented, up-and-coming, artists to Mountain Village. The Sunset Concert vibe is magical and I’m very excited that it's back.”
