If you live in the Northern Colorado area and have been waiting for an iconic festival featuring acts like the B-52’s, U2, Tom Petty, Led Zeppelin Black Sabbath, and more… I can't help you.

But I can tell you about the next best thing: Leftapalooza.

Returning for its ninth year from noon to 10 p.m. on May 18, Longmont's Left Hand Brewing presents Leftapalooza — a one-day celebration of “music you know the words to.” The show is located in the heart of Longmont at Roosevelt Park.

Here are the tribute bands who will be performing and competing for a $1,000 cash prize:
