Colorado has never before seen a music festival of this magnitude: hosting five stages (some tented), food from many of Denver's top restaurants, an artists' village, misting tents and more.

In addition to the headliners, performance highlights include John Mayer, The Black Crowes, O.A.R., Michael Franti & Spearhead, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Steve Winwood, Spoon, Flogging Molly, Colbie Caillat, OneRepublic, The Roots, plus local favorites Flobots, Rose Hill Drive, Meese, Born In The Flood, Railbenders and The Photo Atlas.

"With its abundant natural beauty, the Denver metropolitan area has always been a special place for outdoor summer concerts," says Chuck Morris, President-CEO of AEG Live Rocky Mountain Region. "The addition of the Outer Fields at Dick's Sporting Goods Park has allowed us to realize our long-held dream of staging a world-class music festival in the Denver Metropolitan area." Dick's Sporting Goods Park was first presented as a potential site by Stan Kroenke of Kroenke Sports Enterprises. Morris was given a tour of the facilities and knew immediately that it was a great fit for the Mile High Music Festival.
Mile High Music Festival marks the first outdoor festival held at the Outer Fields of Dick's Sporting Goods Park, which offers immaculate lawns and remarkable vistas of the Denver skyline and Rocky Mountain Front Range, including a panoramic view from Long's Peak to Pikes Peak. Concertgoers will have a wide range of cuisines to choose from, with many of Denver 's most popular restaurants participating in the event. An artists' village - including an extensive exhibit of local arts and crafts - will be another highlight of the festival.
