Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Yesterday, Mile High Music Festival officials released schedule for this year's two-day concert event on the grounds of Dick's Sporting Goods Park. From the looks of it, there's been some substantial changes from last year, the most notable being the addition of another main stage on the east side of the field, which will be divided from the main stage on the west by the food and vendor area. As with last year, there's five stages of action; in addition to the main stages, bands will perform on the First Bank Stage, Rhapsody Tent and the Westword Tent. We've also received word that there's more areas for shade and more misting fans. See the full layout, itinerary and list of permitted and forbidden items after the jump.
