Everything we know about Denver’s proposed massive music festival

How many years would the festival be in Denver? The contract stipulates a five-year deal (ending in 2022), but that could change if the first year doesn’t go smoothly or there are breaches of the terms. The contract would be reevaluated after the term ends.

When would the festival take place? From noon to 10 p.m. on the second or third weekend (Friday through Sunday) of September 2018.

How big will it be? Organizers envision 30,000 to 40,000 attendees each day in the first year, with the crowd growing after that. The contract caps attendance at 80,000 a day.

Councilmember, community seek voice in university closing

A news release for the event said it could include southwest Denver-area residents, state and local elected officials, Sisters of Loretto members and university faculty, staff and alumni.

“Recent redevelopments around the city have demonstrated that Denver residents have little to no voice in what happens right in their own neighborhoods,” the release said. “Residents are taking the initiative now with the hope of producing a ‘win-win’ for everyone involved, including the new property owner.”

Flynn said he’s been urging the city to acquire the 1,000-seat theater or find a way to retain it as a community building, saying it could be a “revenue stream” and host actors, artists, concerts and the like.
