Colorado Music Festivals

From city-based outdoor music festivals like the Denver Colorado music festival Jazz Festival to multi-genre camping jamborees in the Rockies, Colorado hosts a wide variety of summer concerts. Whether you prefer to groove to Dead & Co. in a sold-out venue or play ukuleles at the Ukefest, you’ll be sure to find some tunes that hit all the right notes.

A longtime staple in Denver, the three-day Country Jam draws more than 20 country artists across two stages at Red Rocks. This summer, the line-up includes Jason Alden and Blake Shelton. If you’re looking for a little more classic music, check out the Colorado Music Festival at Chautauqua Auditorium. This season features the premiere of a new work by composer Gabriela Lena Frank and four Tuesday evening chamber concerts led by pianist Olga Kern and violinist Augustin Hadelich.
