Just when you thought it was safe to lock in your summer plans, the just announced Newhoma Camping and Music Festival might make you pull your calendar back out and reach for your red Sharpie.
Georgia jam rockers Outformation, avante garde NYC jazz cats Sex Mob and local jam rock superband Dyrty Byrds headline a fairly diverse musical lineup, including lots of homegrown talent. Newhoma takes place on August 20-22 at the Big Spring Ranch, 35 miles west of Colorado Springs.
Situated on 6,000 acres of private ranch land in the hills near Cripple Creek and nestled on the backside of Pikes Peak, Newhoma offers things many other music festivals don't such as hiking, mountain biking, kid-friendly entertainment, camping, food that hasn't been deep fried, and decent beers that don't cost a small fortune. It also only has one stage, so each act is slated to perform one at a time.
Additionally, the festival is a fundraiser with a percentage of the proceeds being used to offset operating costs for the High Trails Outdoor Education Center, which serves the school children of Colorado Springs, Denver and other regions of Colorado. If mountain camping under the stars, music, and good beer are your thing, head over to Newhoma's website and pick up your tickets.
