The Westword Music Showcase is back…and bigger than ever. The city’s largest single-day festival celebrating Denver’s music scene has been transformed for 2021 and will take over the RiNo Art District and Mission Ballroom Outdoors with a two-day festival filling both indoor and outdoor venues with live performances by local and national musical acts, as well as visual and performing arts events, food and drink opportunities and more. On Friday night, September 17, the experience kicks off with live music by over fifty of Denver’s best acts ranging from rock to hip-hop, indie, alternative, country, folk, bluegrass and electronic, playing at multiple venues. Outdoors, the streets of RiNo will be filled with live painting, interactive art and other activities. As you move through the neighborhood, you’ll be able to indulge in offerings from the best food trucks in the city. At the main event on Saturday, September 18, the celebration will continue with Young the Giant, Thundercat, Hippo Campus and Matoma, as well as more of Denver’s best bands than ever before on the Showcase’s outdoor stages. In addition, you’ll be able to enjoy food options from some of the best restaurants and trucks in town and beverages from our deluxe, on-site bars. To enjoy the full, two-day experience, grab the Weekender Pack, which includes access to the official finale at Mission Ballroom, featuring Kaytranada and Duke Dumont.
