Now in it’s fifth year, Beanstalk, which this year returns to Rancho Del Rio, has — like its namesake — grown very large, very quickly. Started as a showcase for the Denver livetronica group The Magic Beans, the festival early on paired with Disco Biscuit and String Cheese Incident side projects, and, as the festival grew, they continued to branch out and curate their own eclectic mix of bigger names in exclusive sets. Beanstalk follows that old template of gathering like-minded musicians in a beautiful location and promoting spontaneous musicial improvisation — a move which has fertilized Beanstalk’s impressive growth each season since its inception.
