Westword Music Showcase


Presented by Coors Light

The Westword Music Showcase returns to the Golden Triangle on Saturday, June 24! Our 23rd annual festival will be bigger and better than ever, with national headliners including Americana powerhouse Shakey Graves, energetic New Orleans natives The Revivalists, Australian electronic band Cut Copy, Bob Moses, COIN, A R I Z O N A plus more local bands than you can hear in a day performing at venues throughout the Golden Triangle.

To determine the lineup of local acts, Westword polled more than 200 movers and shakers in the music business, everyone from promoters to fans to musicians themselves, who nominated more than 800 local bands and performers; those nominations were whittled down to more than 200 finalists divided into 30 categories on our 2017 Westword Music Awards Ballot. Close to half of those acts will perform at the Westword Music Showcase, and fans can vote for their favorites beginning on March 16 through June 25.

The Westword Music Showcase is the largest music festival celebrating the Denver scene. It runs from noon to 10 p.m. on June 24, and tickets go on sale Friday, March 10 at 10 a.m. A general admission ticket gets you access to all of the participating venues, including the two outdoor stages, as well as the merchandise village; VIP tickets are also available. Our VIP experience includes a VIP entrance to the outdoor area with the two main stages and the merchandise village, special viewing areas at those main stages, and a VIP area where you’ll get two free beers from Coors Light and have access to shaded seating, VIP restrooms and premium food vendors from which you can purchase snacks. And, of course, your VIP ticket will get you into all the other Showcase venues. VIP tickets are 21+ only.
