Old Town, Fort Collins, Colo.
In 2013, Bohemian Nights at NewWestFest will once again feature the first-rate talent of Colorado musicians coming from around the state to perform during the three-day, free, outdoor music extravaganza. For years, the festival has made Colorado talent its main focus, and made it a point to highlight a wide range of musical genres within that local talent.
As much a street fair as it is a music festival, Bohemian Nights spreads across six stages, filling historic Old Town Fort Collins to the brim with live music from both headliners and up-and-coming locals, plus great food and cold beer.
You’re going there to see: Headliners will be announced early May.
You’re going to come home talking about: Colorado groups you never knew existed.

You Need To Know: Locals already know that Fort Collins was named one of the country’s most bike friendly towns by Bicycle Magazine in 2012. Those traveling to the Fort for the event might want to ponder packing their two wheelers. While you can’t ride around within the festival grounds proper, there are loads of mini-trips just outside the festival perimeter, including dozens of local breweries.
