A pre-festival picking session takes place at the Telluride Town Park Campground.

After being canceled in 2020 and scaled back in 2021, the Telluride Bluegrass Festival was back in full force over the weekend.

The 49th annual festival ran Thursday through Sunday. But a few days before the official start, throngs of festivarians filled the Telluride Town Park Campground.

KOTO Radio's Matt Hoisch spoke with some of those campers about how it feels to be back for the first complete festival in three years.
