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.

Snails Shares Epic Coachella Recap With Special Guests Skrillex, Marshmello & More

Snails Skrillex Coachella Recap

It goes without saying that Snails unveiled his biggest set to date at Coachella 2016 in the Sahara Tent. The vomitstep pioneer claimed the throne both Fridays at 9:05pm, a coveted primetime slot that is not historically keen to his heavy sound. He joins an elite club of bass headliners that includes Skrillex, Knife Party and Excision who have managed to earn night time spots to showcase their ground-shaking growls.

While expectations were high and the energy-fueled tent was packed to the back, Snails made sure to capitalize on the esteemed opportunity, bringing out Marshmello, Flosstradamus, KSHMR and OWSLA's chief, Skrillex. Watch the recap video below to see what it's like to be one of thousands to get "SNAILED."

The Montreal-based artist now heads to New York where he will be performing at EDC New York on Sunday. Fans can also catch him at the EDC official pre-party this Friday (May 13) where he'll be headlining Webster Hall. Tickets can be purchased here. His Kill The Noise remix of "Fuk Ur MGMT" will also be dropping this Friday on the official Occult Classic remix album.
