If you’re looking to hit a high-note this summer, we’ve created a Mile High Summer Concerts Guide. Because we’re “cheapskates”, we’re not covering any of the biggies at major venues, like the Pepsi Center or Red Rocks (who can pay those prices?) — just the local shows in the park or as part of a festival/fair. Luckily, the Front Range is jam-packed with many summer concerts — many of them FREE… our favorite kind! To ensure you don’t miss out on any live music, we’ve created this helpful guide sorted by day of the week. Clicking on a link will take you to our event listing for more details, including who’s performing, showtime, location, any restrictions (what you can and can’t bring) and other notable information. If we’ve missed any in your part of town, be sure to drop us a note. Let the music play!
