Another Colorado Music Festival Bites the Dust in 2019
No Vans Warped Tour, no Grandoozy — and it doesn't stop there, unfortunately. Organizers of the annual Velorama have announced they are pulling a plug on the Denver music fest this year, The Know reports.
The music festival started in conjunction with a bike race in the RiNo Arts District of Denver — that will still happen, but the live music portion will not. In 2017, Death Cab for Cutie and Saint Motel headlined, and in 2018, Cold War Kids and Modest Mouse made the bill. [Read more from The Know here.]
However, on January 22, Velorama published a statement saying, 'The Velorama Festival will not return in 2019. We are focusing our resources and efforts on the Colorado Classic, which we are transforming into one of the top standalone women’s pro bicycle races in the world.' You can read the full statement here.
While Denver may not have quite the festival lineup this summer, The RIDE Festival is still happening in Telluride (so far, at least).
