The Westword Music Showcase 2015 is a celebration of our state’s vibrant music scene. Colorado is home to internationally renowned experimental bands, pioneering folk artists, Grammy winners and much, much more. On most nights in Denver, you can see just about any kind of show you like, from bluegrass to hip-hop to hardcore punk. The sheer magnitude of the state’s musical output can be daunting — so whether you’re new to the scene, hoping to expand your horizons or just looking for a party, the Westword Music Showcase is a good place to start.

Colorado’s musical exports are matched by its imports: Legendary venues and enthusiastic fans ensure that bands from around the world route their tours to include a swing through the Rocky Mountains. We’ll host a few of those visitors at the Showcase — on our outdoor main stage in the heart of Denver.
