Camping is filling up fast for the 25th Anniversary of Country Jam, which takes place June 16 through 19 at Jam Ranch outside of Grand Junction.
Currently, only four day tickets are on sale, but quiet, electrical, extended, VIP and premiere camping is already sold out, leaving just general camping as an option. 4-day General Admission tickets start at $145, with Reserve tickets starting at $375, and weekend VIP tickets starting at $725. General Admission Campsites are available starting at $149. Single day ticket sales are anticipated to begin with the exact lineup is announced in April.
“Tickets are selling briskly, but we should be able to accommodate everyone who wants to come,” Carolyn Chauncey, head of marketing for Townsquare Media, which runs the event.
This year’s Jam is headlined by Zac Brown Band, Blake Shelton, Brad Paisley and Lee Brice, who will be joined by some of country’s biggest stars as well as rising newcomers and regional acts.
Founded in 1992, Country Jam was spawned off of a similar event in Wisconson.
“Their desire was to expand further into the West,” Chauncey said. “Colorado didn’t really have any big music festivals, and it was a space they really felt had terrific beauty and was big enough to accommodate a big festival.”
“I think a lot of people don’t realize how gorgeous Grand Junction is,” she added.
Since then it has only grown, with a record 80,000 people attending last year from all over the state and four corners region.
