One of Denver’s most anticipated events of the summer has announced its lineup and as usual the local festival has brought in some serious national talent. Headlining the 2018 Denver Westword Showcase is Swedish electronic duo Galantis, consisting of DJs Christian Karlsson and Linus Eklöw. The duo recently released their sophomore album The Aviary in September of 2017.

Led by musician, producer and DJ Simon Green, Bonobo blends a wide range of genres such as trip-hop, jazz, downtempo and what is often described as world music to form a unique blend of livetronica all their own. In January of 2017, Simon released his sixth album under the Bonobo moniker. Migration would go on to nab Green two Grammy nominations at the 2018 awards.
Also appearing on the main outdoor stages are The Front Bottoms, Joywave, Sunflower Bean and MAGIC GIANT. Not to mention over 100 of Denver’s best bands and artists. The 24th annual Westword Showcase takes place Saturday, June 23 in Denver’s Golden Triangle neighborhood.
