The underdog team at Levitt Pavilion, a new 7,500-seat venue, has announced a handful of free summer concerts showcasing local and up-and-coming acts for its first season.
“Levitt Pavilion Denver began as a dream five years ago. Since then, we’ve been working diligently to turn this dream into a reality,” says Chris Zacher, founder and executive director of the nonprofit behind Levitt Pavilion Denver, in a statement. “We’re incredibly excited to begin presenting free music to the community, ensuring access to high quality performances for people of all ages and socioeconomic backgrounds.”
The lineup includes:
July 20: Slim Cessna’s Auto Club (Rock) as part of The Colorado Music Series
July 23: The Stone Foxes (Rock/pop)
August 3: The Suffers (Soul/funk) presented as part of the Levitt National Tour
August 4: John Fullbright (Folk/Americana)
August 24: Gaby Moreno (Latin)
While the nonprofit venue is offering up many free concerts, Zacher pledges that musicians will be paid a competitive rate. In addition to free shows, Levitt will also host paid concerts for acts including UB40 and 311.
