The Parties Behind Coachella, Bonnaroo & More Want To Throw A Coachella-Like Festival In Colorado

Overland Park Gold Course, Denver

The iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater might be one of Colorado's most popular contributions to the music world, but that might be changing in the near future with the recent news of a Coachella-like festival popping up in Denver.

Superfly, the company behind festivals like Bonnaroo and Outside Lands, alongside AEG, the massive live music company that owns Goldenvoice who is responsible for producing Coachella are planning (or at least hoping) to throw a multi-million dollar festival on Overland Park Gold Course in Denver. Chuck Morris, CEO of AEG Live Rocky Mountains says this project has actually been in the works since 2010 and sees major potential here.

Denver-based publication Westword describes Morris' vision for the event as being one "with multiple stages and a bevy of musical acts, akin to Coachella, if slightly smaller, at least in the beginning." Whether or not this will all go down on the golf course has yet to be figured out and Morris says he's "looking at all options".

"Morris and his colleagues see potential — not just in run-of-the-mill stadium concerts, but in creating a festival experience with multiple stages and a bevy of musical acts, akin to Coachella, if slightly smaller, at least in the beginning." -- Westword

Neighborhood activists voiced their concerns at a city meeting earlier this week about a festival taking place in their community. Mayor Michael Hancock's team seemed to be for it thought as they mentioned it could bring in upwards of $2.5 million.

As of yesterday (Feb. 2) though, Denver isn't the only city up for consideration. Westminster, about 10 miles north of Denver, is the other spot in the running and seems very eager to make the festival happen. AEG and Superfly have yet to make a decision on which city they'd be moving forward with, but mentioned that they've had to jump through more hoops with Denver's approval process so far. 

The three-day event is looking to attract 30,000 to 60,000 people and would take place in Fall 2018 over one weekend, closing up shop by 10pm each night. However, event organizers would need five weeks to set everything up and break it down.

Stay tuned for more details as this multi-day festival.

ODESZA Announce Winners For "White Lies" Remix Contest With 3 Free Downloads

ODESZA Announce Winners For "White Lies" Remix Contest With 3 Free Downloads - Featured Image

Seattle based duo and TSIS favorites ODESZA are quite familiar faces to our site from their outstanding breakout debut studio album In Return, to endless remixes and much more. Well last year we did a huge contest for their song "Say My Name" which helped jump start the careers of artists like Autolaser and Geek x Vrv among others. We partnered up with them once again earlier this year for their single "White Lies," which is also from In Return. To make things even more exciting, we brought one of the largest music festivals in the world into the picture, Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival. The winner not only gets co-signed by ODESZA, uploaded to the TSIS Soundcloud, and given a home page feature on our website, but they will also get to play a set at Bonnaroo this summer alongside ODESZA, Deadmau5, Kendrick Lamar, Flume and many many others. 

Well the contest is over and we were all blown away by the response which had over 8,100 people download the stems to enter the contest, with over 586 entries to the contest totalling well over 100,000 visits. There were so many amazing entries, and now the band has chosen winners. The grand prize goes to Attom who's based out of Minnesota and delivered a suprising, extremely melodic Nu-Disco rendition of the track highlighting the original vocals and melodies in a very original way. He will be getting flown out to Bonnaroo, given full lodging at the festival camp ground, will be playing a set at the festival, and you can find his remix below where it's been uploaded to the Thissongissick Soundcloud. We are excited to see what happens for Attom over the next few months, and we can assure he is an act to keep an eye out for.

Runner ups include Jumbo P coming out of Italy, who went against the grain and went for a deeper, downtempo progressive route that turned out very cool. The third place goes to LA based electronic trio Cheat Codes who venture into the future bass side of things with a very original live indie twist that makes the remix really stand out as one of the favorites amongst some of the TSIS crew. All of these artists have very bright futures ahead of them.

Listen below to all three winning remixes and grab exclusive free downloads provided by ODESZA and Bonaroo. Enjoy!

Here are a few words on the contest from ODESZA themselves:

“Thanks to all the producers who submitted a remix and everyone that voted in the contest.  And thanks to the TSIS readers for all the support.  We’re looking forward to catching Attom’s set at Bonnaroo!” - Harrison and Clay
