DENVER — Underground Music Showcase will return in Denver this summer.
The music festival will be held live and in-person Friday, Aug. 27 to Sunday, Aug. 29, 2021.
While the 2020 event was held as a virtual fundraiser variety show, festival organizers are ready to stage a safe and impactful event in Denver's South Broadway neighborhood.
The showcase will require proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID test to enter.
"The safety of fans, artists, venues, and staff will always be our top priority," read a statement from festival organizers. "It’s the right thing to do, and the way we’ll be able to rock the way we want to."
"After 20 years of Underground Music Showcase, we were thrilled to be able to carry-on our tradition virtually last year by raising $75,000 for independent musicians," said festival owner Casey Berry. "With that said, we couldn’t be happier to be in-person for 2021 to not only support live music and local bands, but to support more than a dozen independent bars and restaurants on Broadway!"
Underground Music Showcase organizers said the festival is working closely with city and state officials for a safe festival.
This year's festival might include reduced capacity (especially at indoor venues) and potentially limiting ticket sales to ensure proper distancing as required. Festival organizers will monitor health directives in real time as the August weekend approaches.
