Summer Festival Guide 2019


Marquee Cover web

Colorado might get a lot of its attention for weed culture, but the real fact of the matter is that music is The Centennial State’s true drug of choice. We’re connoisseurs around here. Jumping on a plane or taking an extended road trip — just so that you can catch that one band’s set that you need to hear — totally normal.

So The Marquee team’s view spans the entire country to help our music freak readers get their festival fix. That openness to explore has resulted in the country’s largest Summer Music Festival Guide in print and online — we cover festivals from Alaska to Florida, from Maine to California — while, of course, keeping our biggest emphasis here in Colorado.

And yes, while we agree that it’s wonderful to know the fun details like how one festival plants a tree for every ticket sold, or that another started as a backyard barbecue and blossomed into a massive three-day event, for our audience, it all comes down to the bands.

Our efforts to get the most up-to-date and complete lineup included in this issue not only offers foundational information about the festivals specifically, it also serves as a guide in the greatest sense of the word. In that, we hope this edition can also be used as an encyclopedic catalog of sorts, of the best music across the country, that can actually help you find some of your new favorite artists. To get you going, notice that festivals are listed alphabetically by month below.

Please click on the logos below to learn more about each festival.

Please note: The Marquee’s regular editorial content will return to print in our June issue. In the meantime, you can find Colorado’s largest concert calendar and open mic listing online this month — and every month.
