Levitt Pavilion Announces First Round of Thirty Free Concerts in 2017

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.
