Doors will open at 11:00 a.m. each day.

Mile High Music Festival exploded on to the national festival scene last year as Colorado's largest music and arts festival, offering concertgoers a tremendous variety of musical talent, food from many of Denver's top restaurants, an artists' village and more. The festival, which attracted more than 90,000 attendees its inaugural year, went off without a hitch and promises again to put the fan experience first. The festival grounds, with its remarkable views of the Denver skyline and Rocky Mountain Front Range, will offer even more shade, an increased number of free water stations, and shorter concession lines. The 2009 event also boasts an upgraded VIP experience and expanded festival greening initiatives.

This year's Mile High Music Festival charity component was created as a special thank you to the community that is supporting this Colorado summer tradition. A portion of the ticket proceeds will benefit Commerce City's Quality Community Foundation (QCF). "This is extremely good news," said Commerce City Mayor Paul Natale. "The city is very excited to again be a part of the Mile High Music Festival, and for AEG Live to donate money to the city's Quality Community Foundation is just music to my ears." The Quality Community Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization established by Commerce City in 2006. It grants money to organizations that provide nonprofit services to Commerce City residents.

How do you figure tracey snyder had anything to do with this. She does not negotiate for the city.

Council woman Tracy Snyder was the one that suggested it to be at Dicks in Commerce City, at least that is what I was told.

It was suppose to be at City Park in Denver right next to the zoo.
