A new festival from the organizers of Coachella and Bonnaroo, AEG and Superfly, could be landing in Denver by 2018.
According to Westword, the so-called “super festival” is slated to be held at the Overland Park Golf Course, the oldest course in Colorado. A meeting was recently held at the course’s clubhouse, with local officials estimating that this new festival, which would welcome around 50,000 people, will generate $1-2.5 million for the city.
Chuck Morris, CEO of AEG Live Rocky Mountains, told Westword that he’s been plotting this event since the company’s Mile High Music Festival held at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park shut down after three years. ““We’re in the phase of looking at all options,” Morris said, also noting that it is “far from guaranteed” to happen.
Stipulations from initial meetings between promoters and the local officials include that music will take place over one weekend in mid-September with music ending by 10 PM each night. The golf course will be closed for five weeks for renovation. Further meetings will take place in the near future.
