Summer is just around the corner, and with the warmer temperatures the Summer Concert Series returns to Denver Botanic Gardens. Along with the producing partner, Swallow Hill Music, Denver Botanic Gardens is excited to announce this summer’s full line-up of fantastic artists.
The 2014 Denver Botanic Gardens Summer Concert Series, presented by UMB Bank, is situated inside the gates of one of the nation’s top botanic gardens. Named one of the “5 Best Outdoor Venues in Colorado” in 2012 by Westword, the UMB Bank Amphitheater and Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield offer an unrivaled ambiance of beautiful scenery and the crystal clear music of some of the world’s most sought-after artists.
This year’s concert series will be all the more brilliant, as the Gardens hosts an exhibition of Dale Chihuly’s impressively bold and vibrant artwork. Chihuly’s sculptures – ranging in size and form – add bold colors and dramatic beauty to the Gardens’ 24-acre urban oasis, and a visually striking backdrop for the 2014 Summer Concert Series.
The full series line-up is below. Tickets go on-sale to the general public April 22 at 10am, with exclusive member pre-sales April 14-21. Unless otherwise noted, all shows start at 7pm; gates open at 6pm.
