New music festival will bring Edward Sharpe, Talib Kweli and more to City Park

A new music festival called Chive Fest is coming to Denver this August, and the lineup is no small affair. It features Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, Cold War Kids, Talib Kweli and more. The full roster is below.

The festival is a collaboration between photo website The Chive and C3 Presents -- the company that produces Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza and a few other music festivals around the country.

Denver's Chive Fest will take place in a little over a month on August 16, from noon to 10 p.m. in City Park. There will be two stages and the promised amenities include, "Nostalgia Tent (life-sized game of Operation anybody?), oversized ostriches, blimps, fireworks, cats, Chivettes, and enough glowing green to make Denver Chive Fest visible from space." Tickets are on sale now for $70.

Chive Fest debuted earlier this year in Chicago, and Seattle and Dallas dates have also been announced.
