Mile High Music Festival Turns Two

Written by  //  July 16, 2009  //  Donnyblurbs  //  1 Comment

This weekend, July 18th and 19th, the second annual Mile High Music Festival will be the place to experience the awkward interweaving of Tool fans with Widespread Panic fans. That’s right, while Widespread will get to headline Sunday, Saturday they have the second to last slot opening for Tool. As our friend Sean Porter pointed out the other day, it should be an interesting changing-of-the-gaurd moment.

All jokes aside, this festival has been proclaimed Denver’s Best New Music Festival by the Westword (“an ideal fusion, a marriage of the local and the national, the commercial and the indie in an expansive, open-air setting”). This goes down at the Fields at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. This years local acts include Gregory Alan Isakov, Rob Drabkin, Paper Bird, Strange Condition, 3OH!3, as well as homegrown national heroes Big Head Todd and the Monsters and Devotchka.

    Not that I’m a fan of her music by any stretch, but it’s kind of shocking to see Ani Difranco slotted way earlier than The Greyboy Allstars, whoever they are.

    Also: the local bands are better than the national bands. Just sayin’.
