Join us on Saturday, June 20, 2015, for the 21st Westword Music Showcase, featuring the inventive producer, DJ and multi-instrumentalist Flume as well as Austin psych-rock titan the Black Angels, pop genius MisterWives and over 100 more of the best bands and artists from Colorado and beyond on a dozen stages in Denver’s Golden Triangle neighborhood. Tickets start at $30 and are on sale now!
The Showcase is a celebration of our state’s vibrant music scene. Colorado is home to internationally renowned experimental bands, pioneering folk artists, Grammy winners and much, much more. On most nights in Denver, you can see just about any kind of show you like, from bluegrass to hip-hop to hardcore punk. The sheer magnitude of the state’s musical output can be daunting — so whether you’re new to the scene, hoping to expand your horizons or just looking for a party, the Westword Music Showcase is a good place to start.
Colorado’s musical exports are matched by its imports: Legendary venues and enthusiastic fans ensure that bands from around the world route their tours to include a swing through the Rocky Mountains. We’ll host a few of those visitors at the Showcase — on our outdoor main stage in the heart of Denver.
