AEG announced this morning that the Mile High Music Festival will not happen this year. The festival, which took place on the outer fields of Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, would have been going into it’s fourth year this summer.
While they blame the cancellation of the festival on “economic reasons,” according to Reverb, the president of AEG Live’s local offices, Chuck Morris, did say “It was not an easy decision to put the festival on hold. We are really proud of the event, and we’re not ruling out the possibility of bringing it back in the future.”
Music has always been a part of my life. It probably all started listening to old Grateful Dead, Peter Paul & Mary, and Simon & Garfunkel records that my parents had, but it wasn't long before they were taking me to concerts like Starship, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Huey Lewis & The News. I got the bug to write about music after reviewing an Eric Clapton concert for a creative writing project in high school but didn't really take it up seriously until 2002. Since then I have published countless articles in The Marquee Magazine and done some work for Jambase.com, SPIN Magazine, and various other outlets. I started Listen Up Denver! as a way to share the music information that is constantly spilling out of my head with people who care. Please enjoy!
