Mile High Music Festival
The Mile High Music Festival was a two-day concert that was held in Commerce City, Colorado in mid 2008. The festival was sponsored by entertainment company AEG Live. It featured top musicians like John Mayer, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Dave Matthews Band, The Black Crowes and Spoon.
Mayer played the Mile High Music Festival in Colorado on July 19 or 20. Some 50 acts were planned across the two day event, which included DMB, OneRepublic, Flogging Molly, Martin Sexton, The Roots, O.A.R., Steve Winwood, Colbie Caillat, Citizen Cope, Brett Dennen, Josh Ritter, etc.
Organizers hoped up to 50,000 people per day would attend the shows at Dick's Sporting Goods Park. Promoters planned two main stages and three smaller ones.
Colorado has never before seen a music festival of this magnitude: hosting five stages, food from many of Denvers top restaurants, an artists village and much more.
The Dave Matthews Band and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers headlined the first Mile High Music Festival at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colo.
The list of other artists scheduled to perform included: Rodrigo y Gabriela, Steve Winwood, Spoon, Flogging Molly, Colbie Caillat, OneRepublic, the Roots, moe.
Citizen Cope, Andrew Bird, State Radio, Martin Sexton, Ingrid Michaelson and Grace Potter, John Mayer, the Black Crowes, O.A.R., Michael Franti & Spearhead, and the Nocturnals.
AEG said the decision to explore alternative locations came after Craig Piper, president and CEO of the Denver Zoological Foundation, wrote in e-mails to AEG and city officials saying that he was unable to endorse the proposed music festival in City Park.
Music promoter Chuck Morris, president and CEO of AEG Live's Rocky Mountain Division, said he was saddened to have to look for alternative sites.
Having began dialogue with the Zoo staff in early September, it is extremely disappointing they've waited this long to announce their position, Morris said in a statement.
Piper also wrote that the zoo was worried about visitor access and financial impacts from the proposed Mile High Music and Arts Festival. Denver Parks and Recreation Manager Kim Bailey issued a statement today about AEG's decision.
Denver Parks & Recreation will continue to move forward on examining its policy of admission-based events in parks throughout the city. A new playlist of artists playing at the Mile High Music Fest is now available for your listening pleasure!
Listen at work, at home, or wherever to the best music featured at the festival of the summer. The official site for Mile High Music Fest touted the fact that the concert location is a mere 8 miles from downtown Denver.
