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.

NOTES FROM INC PARC meeting March 21, 2017

PARC was reminded that the portion of this meeting regarding a proposed large music festival at Overland Golf Course site was strictly to be focused on “process.” This appeared to mean both the current process OSE is going through to make a decision on permitting this event, and a more permanent process to follow for future situations like it. If a contract is signed it will be for a period of 5 years. A great amount of time and energy already has been expended in OSE meetings with numerous groups to garner input.
