Got your tickets to Mile High Music Festival yet? No? It's a month away -- what are you waiting for? Ah, you have to work on Sunday, and you can't afford a two-day pass?
Good thing you waited. Starting today at 10 a.m., you can purchase single day advance tickets for $99.50 (or pick up single day VIP for $225), with no additional charges or fees at TicketHorse.com.
What's that? You're not surprised, eh? You figured there would be single day tickets and that's why you waited? Nice work there, Nostradamus. Bet you didn't see this coming, though (we didn't): There's been some cool changes made to this year's fest. Follow the jump to find out what.
Okay, you ready for this? You sitting down? You can re-enter this year. No kidding. Forgot something in the car? Feel like taking a mid-afternoon nap? You're all good. How about that? Wait, there's more. And this is huge: You can now also bring in food and (non-alcoholic) drink. Really! I know it sounds like we're making all this stuff up, but we're not. Promise.
Oh, and in an effort to make sure you have the best festival experience possible, the folks at AEG have expanded the shuttle system. Coming in from Boulder? Broomfield? Leave the driving to someone else. Park-n-ride pickups now include 1STBANK Center and the Boulder Theater, in addition to the Pepsi Center.
Parking's free and an Easy Rider Shuttle Pass is only $20 per day. Pick-ups begin at 10:30 a.m. -- in time to get you to the Fields at Dick's Sporting Goods Park for the first bands which start playing at noon -- and run until 11:30 p.m. when the music winds down. See the full-line up below, and stay tuned for more announcements in the coming weeks.
