In the void left by the Cannabis Cup moving to Southern California for 4/20 (wow, someone moving away from Colorado?), cannabis-industry leaders have created a multi-venue party for Denver's favorite holiday. Starting at 4:20 p.m., the festival features industry speakers, standup comedy, and live music from Del the Funky Homosapien, Cut Chemist, Dumpstafunk, and headliner Rusko.

DJ and producer Madeon may only be 22, but he has been deep into the house and nu-disco scenes since 2011. He's worked with Coldplay, Lady Gaga, Ellie Goulding, Muse and Passion Pit, solidifying his name with a few of pop music's brightest. If you haven't smoked yourself silly the night before, be sure to make your way to the Church to see this great French DJ 9. Hot Since 82 Sunday, April 23
For a deep tech-house show, Beta is bringing a favorite of the British and European club circuits: Hot Since 82. Purists of house music flock to his shows and to the Internet to hear recordings of them, like his three-hour set at Space Ibiza that was broadcast over BBC Radio1 by Pete Tong as an essential mix, or his Boiler Room show, seen above. There's no better DJ to dance away the "Sunday scaries" to, especially with his beats piping through Beta's killer sound system.
