Levitt Pavilion’s Free Concerts to Return in May: Flobots, Devotchka + More
9NEWS has reported that Levitt Pavilion, an outdoor venue in Denver, will be resuming its free concert series starting May 14, 2021.
Like Red Rocks, which is starting off its concert season with a limited capacity of 2,500 people (when it can normally reach a cap near 10,000 people), 9NEWS said that Levitt is expecting to be operating at half capacity —3,800. Masks and social distancing are required, too.
The concert series at Levitt Pavilion already has shows on the calendar from May to September with artists like Devotchka and Flobots, which you can see here. And while the shows are free, the Levitt Pavilion is asking its friends, neighbors and concertgoers to help it with its comeback.
We all know that this last year devastated the music scene both globally and locally; we've seen venues shutter permanently, including Hodi's Half Note and Three Kings. Levitt Pavilion has started a Comeback Fund to help recover from its $2 million loss in revenue last year.
'We hope to raise $25,000 through our Comeback Fund so that we can continue to provide over $36 million worth of free concerts, music education and career development programs and impactful support of our music scene by booking over ~100 Colorado bands a season, at about a 40 percent higher rate that they receive at other local venues,' Levitt Pavilion posted on its Facebook.
