Chive Fest hopes to be among City Park's first major music festivals, despite concerns

Photo-based entertainment website The Chive recently announced that it would hold a two-stage music festival called Chive Fest in City Park on August 16. The event will be among the first major admission-based, for-profit festivals held in Denver's largest park.

Some groups have expressed concern about the impact of Chive Fest, which will feature eight bands, including Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes and Talib Kweli. In response, the City of Denver asked Chive Fest organizers to host a public meeting to discuss those issues. They agreed and will hold that meeting this evening from 6 to 7 p.m in the VIP Room of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science.
