Lots of music coming to Denver this summer!
As we move nearer to hot girl/boy summer and more and more people are vaccinated, there have been big venues announcing their return. We’ve already seen the return of Eiditch and there are a ton of more outdoor venues announcing their calendar of events from now through summer. Here’s a running list of the latest opening venues. Make sure to stay safe and keep tabs on regulations for any events or venues you’re planning to attend.
Although the botanical gardens have been open for some time, they will continue running and hosting fun events throughout the summer. June through August will see nights featuring live music. On select Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:30 to 8:30, you can stroll through the gardens and stumble upon small, ensemble groups of talented performers. The event called, Evenings Al Fresco, is in partnership with Swallow Hill Music. May 10th-11th there will be an in-person plant sale from 9am to 6pm. Reservations are required but the event is free. You can also score free tickets to an exhibited tour of local artist, Kevin Sloan’s work.
Reopening May 14th is the Levitt Pavillion, Denver’s only free cultural exhibit. Their upcoming events will host half the typical capacity but are happening from May 14th to September 18th. Dust Bowl Revival, Rock De Mayo, and Colorado Cool Vibes Reggae Fest are just some of the upcoming events you can attend. Check out their website for more information.
Mission Ballroom is returning with a vengeance in July and August with some exciting upcoming shows. From Youtube stars Cody Ko And Noel Miller going on tour with their standup routines and music performances, to the electro sensation, Zeds Dead. Keep track of their website for ticket and show information.
Maybe the most exciting of all is America’s greatest ampitheatre. Red Rocks announced a huge amount of events happenign this summer, and we couldn’t be more excited. Capacity has taken a bit cut, so you’ll want to check ahead for reservations. Some of the upcoming artists are electronic artist Zhu, experimental group Die Antwood, Diplo, and Osees. Drive-in movies are returning this summer as well, with Dirty Dancing kicking off the season, followed by Jaws.
5. Comedy Works
Comedy Works South is open but Comedy Works Downtown is still closed due to COVID. From Nancy Norton to Matthew Broussard , Michael Rapaport, and even a new talent night to showcase unknown local comedians. Check their website for a calendar of events.
