Superfly, the New York-based company behind Grandoozy, prides itself on creating "experiences" rather than concerts. Superfly was the brains behind Bonnaroo and runs Outside Lands.

"Our interest in producing a landmark festival in Denver was born out of spending years getting to know the city and local community and diving head first into its flourishing cultural scene," said company co-founder Jonathan Mayers in a statement. "Superfly’s expertise in producing large scale immersive festivals, paired with Denver's distinct and unique personality, is the perfect match for creating Grandoozy, a one of a kind experience that we hope becomes a source of pride and celebration for this amazing city."
