While there's some great festivals like Global Dance, Global Dub and Decadence, Colorado has not had the best luck with major music festivals in the past decade, with Mile High Music Festival, Snowball, and Riot Fest all being cancelled after several years. A new announcement today looks to be turning that tide though: Denver's new festival is officially set for Overland Golf Course this year on September 14th-16th and the name has been revealed as Grandoozy Music Festival.
The festival will not be a camping festival and includes culinary, art, beer and outdoor experiences in addition to music.
Superfly, the company responsible for festivals such as Bonnaroo and Outside Lands, has been hyping up this event for over a year now, proposing that the three-day festival will bring 30,000-60,000 attendees. The multi-million dollar project was approved to be located at Overland Golf Course back in August of last year, which is located just south of downtown Denver. The approval gave them a five-year contract at that location, so if this first year goes well it sounds like something Coloradans can look forward to every September. They are expecting this first year to bring in around $2 million in ticket sales with additional revenue from tourists, and for attendance to double in the second year.
A press conference was held by Superfly today which announced the name of the festival, dates, and when we can expect the lineup announcement: in just a few weeks on March 20th. They also revealed a preliminary site map, which showed that the festival will have three or four stages. We are very much looking forward to the lineup announcement - make sure to check back here on 3/20 to see who will be playing the first year of Grandoozy Music Festival! See some images below from the press conference.
