The 2013 Colorado music festival guide

I know it's hard to imagine now, especially with the temperature outside and the blanket of snow currently covering the Front Range, but summertime is just around the corner, which means the festival season is just getting ready to kick off. We know this because we're in the middle of putting together our own annual festival as we speak. And we're not the only ones. Keep reading for a comprehensive list of festivals, including this weekend's Root 40 Music Festival and FoCoMx. (If we missed any, of course, please feel free to let us know, so we can update our list.)
