2nd Annual Down In Denver Fest

Denver, CO

August 19-21, 2022

Larimer Lounge

Last year a new local festival started Down In Denver. Last year it was held Labor Day Weekend. This year it will be held in August.

The 2nd annual Down In Denver Fest will be 2.5 days of local music, happening Saturday, Aug. 20th and Sunday, Aug. 21st – including a free pre-party Friday night, Aug. 19th – at Larimer Lounge. Tickets are $25/day or $50 for the weekend.

Down In Denver was co-founded in 2021 by longtime Denver musicians Kitty Vincent, Marie Litton, and Michael Trundle of Denver’s legendary dance party Lipgloss. Its mission is to bring together Colorado artists to showcase their work in a collaborative and inclusive environment. Down In Denver aims to provide support for both established and new artists alike for the purpose of creating exposure and building community.

Down In Denver will feature 50 acts on 2 stages, with headliners Pink Fuzz on Saturday and Dressy Bessy on Sunday – and will feature local acts from a wide variety of genres. Pay attention to Friday FREE Pre-Party.

Pre-Party

The festival will have Denver veterans like Emerald Siam and Jen Korte, brand new acts like Unicorn Hits, and a very rare appearance from elusive icons like Mr. Pacman, Magic Cyclops, and Andrew Novick’s “GetYourGoing” PowerPoint Project. If you missed Underground Music Showcase you will find many of those acts here including Saturday headliner Pink Fuzz, Moon Pussy, Polly Urethane, Sarah Slaton and the Great Perhaps, The Sickly Hecks and Wave Decay.

Down In Denver

Down In Denver is presented by Evergroove Studio and Rupp’s Drums, with participation from Ratio Beerworks and Mi Rey Social Food Truck.

UMS2

The Underground Music Showcase

August 27-29, 2021

Denver, CO

https://www.undergroundmusicshowcase.com/

For over 20 years this music festival has brought big names to Denver while also showcasing the local scene. This year over 170 artists will appear on 15 stages over 3 days. Last year the festival was a virtual 3 hour event. This year’s showcase includes Pinegrove, Remi Wolf, Shannon & The Clams, Sofia Valdes among its 13 headliners. Local acts include returning artists of Bellhoss, Slow Caves, Wildermiss, Izcalli and more. There are also new faces including Lnlygirl, The Grand Alliance, Deadluv and more.

“After 20 years of Underground Music Showcase, we were thrilled to be able to carry-on our tradition virtually last year by raising $75,000 for independent musicians” shares Casey Berry, owner of the festival. “With that said, we couldn’t be happier to be in-person for 2021 to not only support live music and local bands, but to support more than a dozen independent bars and restaurants on Broadway!”

UMS is working closely with city and state officials to make sure we rage safely in 2021. This might include reduced capacity (especially at indoor venues), and potentially limiting ticket sales to ensure proper distancing as required. UMS has every intent to become a good example of how to return to in-person, live music festivals in a safe and celebratory manner, and will be monitoring health directives in real time as the big weekend approaches.
