Empire Americana Celebrates Country, Rock and Folk

Empire, Colo.


Only 45 minutes west of Denver, just outside of Idaho Springs, the small town of Empire will host the second Empire Americana festival. The lineup features all-local talent, including Ethyl and the Regulars, Casey James Prestwood and the Burning Angels and Ryan Chrys and the Rough Cuts.

With free camping included in the insanely affordable $15 presale ticket fee and $25 day-of, Empire Americana works out for ticket holders to be less than $2 an hour for music — add in the time spent camping and it drops to less than a dollar an hour — making it one of the best choices in the state for cash-strapped music freaks that still care about hearing good music.
