Why I Love Going to Music Festivals

July 20th, 2019

I recently developed a love for music festivals! I share a deep love for the experience of a music festival, as it’s like nothing else I’ve seen. It feels like an EXPERIENCE over just another concert, hangout, etc. I love them for the way they bond us with others and create a sense of belonging. Here are some of the reasons I love them and why you should try going to one someday! 1.The Good Energy Every time I’ve been to a festival, the energy has been off the wall amazing.

Every year when I get my pass for the Westword Music Showcase, I have to take a deep breath and mentally prepare myself for the musical free-for-all I’m committing to. It’s a barrage of bands with a lineup that could easily last a weekend, unceremoniously crammed into a ten-hour window. The Showcase started in 1995 as a way to put Denver bands on the map, and for the last 25 years it’s been doing just that. The whole event is set up like a scavenger hunt for your favorite bands. Saturday June 29th, the Showcase hits the Golden Triangle with two giant outdoor stages and participating venues... Read More

Frozen Dead Guy Days

March 3rd, 2018

March is the snowiest month of the year for Colorado. It’s also the month of one of the quirkiest, weirdest festivals in the country: Frozen Dead Guy Days. Next weekend marks the 17th year for the festival, which, if you don’t know, is in honor of a frozen dead man stored in a Tuff Shed in Nederland. What? Bred Morstol was born and raised in Norway. After he died in 1989, his grandson Trygve Bauge took the body to the United States in hopes of cryogenically freezing it because…why not? After a stint in California, the body wound up in Ned, where Trygve and his mother, Aud, attempted to build... Read More
