“Denver Delights: The Best Music Festivals Happening This Weekend

If you’re looking for something a bit bigger, head to Red Rocks Amphitheatre and get ready to dance the night away under the stars while world-famous DJs spin their latest hits on multiple stages. And if you’re into the more mellow sounds of acoustic music, the Underground Music Showcase and Colorado Springs’ RockyGrass are great places to catch the next big billboard-topping artist in an intimate jam session space.

If classical music is more your speed, the 2024 Colorado Music Festival features uplifting evenings of great symphonies and chamber music concerts in Boulder’s historic all-wood Chautauqua Auditorium. You can also listen to world-class performances by solo artists and the Denver Philharmonic Orchestra in the Boettcher Hall at the Denver Performing Arts Complex Galleria and Sculpture Park.
