NedFest: The Nederland Music & Arts Festival is Nederland's annual two-day outdoor music event. It is located on the shores of Barker Reservoir in the mountains of Nederland... just 17 miles west of (3,000 ft above) Boulder. The music featured at NedFest is in the bluegrass, jazz and world-beat genres... or more so, a sound that blends these styles together. The first NedFest happened in 1996 at Nederland's Chipeta Park. After a short hiatus it was resurrected during the first weekend of August 1999 at its current site, The Jeff Guercio Memorial Baseball Park, where it has been held ever since. The event has since become the highlight of summer in Nederland. Five to six bands headline each day, with solo, duo or trio 'tweener' sets between each band. Artists who have performed at NedFest in the past include:
- Victor Wooten (the outrageous bass player from Bela Fleck & the Flecktones);
- Stanley Jordan (jazz guitar legend and innovator of the touch-and-tap technique);
- Charlie Hunter (who plays a unique 8-string guitar/bass-hybrid);
- Robert Walter's 20th Congress; most members of Leftover Salmon;
There is a limit of 2,000 tickets sold per day, and in addition to two full days of music NedFest also features Arts & Crafts/Merchandise Booths, Food/Beverage Booths, Information Booths and several Service Booths.
