Westword Music Showcase

Westword Music Showcase 2019

Denver, CO - USA

Sat 29 June – Sat 29 June

Westword Music Showcase is an annual music festival taking place in Denver, CO. The Westword Music Showcase started back in October 1995 with forty local bands playing venues around LoDo, right by where Coors Field had opened earlier that year. If you’d asked the average American to compile a list of the country’s hot music scenes at the time, Colorado probably wouldn’t have made the cut. Few performers from these parts had made the leap from area stardom to national renown, though a folksinger who’d taken the name of Colorado’s capital had helped put the scene on the map.

Since then, this town’s music business has boomed, with more and more Denver bands breaking out nationally and the Mile High City becoming a must-stop for touring national acts.
