Here's who's playing at Grandoozy on Saturday and when

Who's 6LACK? Should you see SunSquabi, the local fave, or Sturgill Simpson? Luckily, Saturday has a lot less conflicting bands, but here's who's playing where and when.

Saturday is the second day for Grandoozy - the three-day festival coming to Denver's Overland Park from Sept. 14 - 16. There are TONS of bands playing and some are playing at the same time. Here's when the bands are playing and where so you can plan accordingly.

Here's a quick rundown of the acts starting at the top of the marquee and going down the queue each day. We've also got guides for Friday and Sunday at these links.

Also, remember, just because there are no competing acts doesn't mean you can hit up all these shows in a row. If you do that, and you're walking from stage to stage, you're liable to be in the back. Plus, there's a bunch of fun stuff outside of seeing your favorite bands.

From our early understanding, "Rock" is Grandoozy's main stage, followed by "Paper" and "Scissors" as the two others.

Here's what's up on Saturday.



Stage: Rock

Time: 8:30 - 9:45 p.m. - no competing acts

Genre: Indie rock

Popularity: Huge, massive - get there ASAP

What live show? The band's set at Voodoo Fest in New Orleans from a couple years ago is a good guide to go by for a live show.


Stage: Paper

Time: 7:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. - no competing acts

Genre: Indie rock

Popularity: They ruled the airwaves back when "Cough Syrup" and "My Body" came out. While they've fallen off a bit recently, expect a massive crowd.

What live show? Here they are at Hangout Fest in Alabama performing their hits last May.


Stage: Rock

Time: 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. - same time as SunSquabi

Genre: Alternative country/Americana

Stage: Scissors

Time: 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. - same time as Sturgill Simpson

Genre: Jam band (self-proclaimed hydro funk)

Popularity: Hometown heroes! Colorado - Denver, specifically - makes no attempts to hide its love of jam bands.

What live show? Red Rocks from April of this year, duh. This jam band definitely will pack out the park.


Stage: Paper

Time: 5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. - no competing acts

Genre: Hip hop/R&B

Popularity: Very similar to The Weeknd but of course with different lyrics and attitude, expect a fair few people there.

Genre: Jazz/funk

Popularity: Active since at least the '80s, he was a member of Lenny Kravitz's band for his debut and has now gone solo. He's been a musician in a lot of stuff, so expect people to figure this out and head out to see him live.
