The Mile High Music and Arts Festival
This will fucking rule!
Posted: November 2, 2007
DENVER (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) -- Chuck Morris and AEG Live are looking into bringing another music fest to life for the summer festival circuit, this one in the mile high city of Denver, Colorado.
Dubbed The Mile High Music and Arts Festival, the event is currently under consideration by the Denver City Council and neighborhood business and community organizations. If approved, the event will occupy the city park for two days on July 19 & 20, bringing 60 bands to six stages in front of 50,000 people a day, the Denver Post reported.
"I'm confident that we'll put together a plan that everybody from the City Council to the neighborhood groups to the Zoo will sign off on," concert promoter Chuck Morris told the Post "Without their support, we cannot do this."
Leaving the nearby Monolith Festival at Red Rocks to plumb the depths of the indie scene, the new event will focus on acts with a broader appeal. Likened to Austin City Limits, the festival will feature artists like Dave Matthews Band, Wilco, John Mayer and Bob Dylan. In addition to the festival Morris has indicated that many of the participating acts would likely play late night gigs at nearby venues as well.
"It's going to be very similar to ACL," Morris told the Post "I went to ACL this year, and it was unbelievable. There are no cars around the park. The bike racks are 100 yards long, and they're all full."
Morris has already reportedly already held about 70 meetings with various civic groups regarding the festival, and plans are in the works to address concerns like traffic congestion and other concerns. He plans to go before the City Council with his finalized proposal in November or December so stay tuned for further developments. - CelebrityAccess Staff Writers

Damn! I picked a bad summer to be out of town. There's a lot of bands on there I'd like to see or haven't seen in a very long time.Skiah for life

Damn, I was really hoping to see Petty at Red Rocks. Oh well, I guess this would be cool too. My wife digs DMB, so maybe we'll make it both days.

Definitely not looking for hippy rock. If it was just Carter soloing or playing with people at his level I would go see it....I just cannot stand Dave one bit. His "singing" drives me fucking crazy.
I love winwood and sexton, but $150 is too much just to see those two.

I will be there for day one. The DMB/John Mayer crowd will be intense on Sunday. Moe. rules.

"No overnight camping No large or hard coolers No pets No glass No tents No footballs, frisbees, any projectiles No bikes, other wheeled transportation vehicles such as Segways, go-peds, skateboards, golf carts, ATVs, or powered skateboards on festival grounds No video and audio recording equipment/pro cameras (pro cameras have detachable lens) No unauthorized vending No weapons No illegal drugs/paraphernalia No tailgating No chains/chain wallets No alcoholic beverages No fireworks/explosives No framed or large backpacks"

Just for the love of whoever please leave your fucking dog at home. They don't like being shacked to a fence in the summer heat while their hippy owners are getting spun.

Oh man just heard about this a few weeks ago. With the way things are looking for me this summer i should be there.

Well, I'm excited. Got the hotel, passes and plane tix -- I'm flying in from Upstate NY with a friend -- Friday morning to Monday night, gonna check out the area a bit. I've never been to Colorado in the summer, only when there's pow! If anyone is from the Denver area and would like to chill with two lovely blondes at the concert / show us around, or leave some tips on here on things we should do while in town, we would be much appreciative!
If you don't do it this year, you'll be one year older when you do.

Rose Hill drive kicks butt. I would like to see Black Crowes. Grace Potter could be interesting. Only have seen a couple of her youtubes. Cute enough for damn sure.
why didn't they go for City Park if this a Mile High music fest?__
This is life
What a fucked up thing we do
What a nightmare come true
Or a playground if we choose
And I choose

Like where? I've never heard of one. If not included, camping is pretty much encouraged/mandatory at every decent fest I've ever been to. Well, yeah - one with no camping. The Sonoma Jazz festival. But that's a bunch of old blue haired wine drinking yuppie snobs anyways.
That lineup is pretty ridiculous though. I'd contemplate paying close to that $ just to see O.A.R. and the Josh Ritter.
04-07-2008, 07:26 AM #23Trading the future for the moment, one freshie turn at a time.
I may have slept with you last night, but that doesn't mean I'll ski with you today.

Went out to the festival grounds this morning. That place is kinda hudge.
I'm helping a crew set up and break down a raver art installation in exchange for passes. Set up Friday and breakdown Monday morning (yeesh. that's gonna hurt)
Stoked to see the Crowes, Winwood and Petty. Keep hearing good things about Dave Matthews' current line up, and looking forward to hearing some new-to-me stuff from New Mastersounds, Grace Potter and others. Leftover, moe, Franti, Cope, Mofro, Roots, Ritter, Mike Gordon, Rose Hill, and many others thrown in for good measure? Oughta be a grand time.
