Denver has become a huge hotspot for concerts and music festivals, with places like the Red Rocks Amphitheatre bringing in the best acts and festivals for the Mile High music fans. Along with the ability to attract mainstream talent, the musical explosion has also helped create a groundswell for indie bands and talent. That makes a festival like the Underground Music Showcase possible.
The Underground Music Showcase is owned by Two Parts, who purchased it from the Denver Post Foundation, and will feature three days of indie music. On tap for the weekend are a ton of local Denver indie music acts all supporting the main stage with some big-name national indie acts. The festival runs the weekend of July 27-29.
The total listing of acts is impossible to include, although they are all listed on the official website of the Underground Music Showcase. There are over 200 indie bands involved in this massive festival. The main national headlining bands are Alvvays, Classixx, B.J. the Chicago Kid, Deerhunter, Cloud Cult, and Digable Planets. Some of the more beloved local indie acts include Chloe Tang. Last of the Easy Riders and All Chiefs.
Thre are limited tickets available for presale and then prices go up on June 14. A weekend pass costs $35 in the presale or $75 after June 14. Tickets can be purchased from the festival's official site.
