The Town of Nederland has a music scene that far surpasses the Town’s diminuitive size. During the last weekend in August, the Town plays host to one of Colorado’s biggest music festivals, NedFest, but nearly every event in Town includes local and regional bands providing a musical backdrop.
Nederland’s place in the musical history books was solidified by the recordings and happenings at the Caribou Ranch in the 1970’s and early ‘80’s. Internationally-known artists such as U2, Tom Petty, Elton John, Stevie Nicks, Billy Joel, Dan Fogelberg, Amy Grant, and the Beach Boys all recorded in “the Barn” on Caribou Ranch, just outside of Town.
