High Music Festival will be August 14 and 15

Colorado’s Mile High Music Festival officially announces the 2010 event. The dates will be August 14 and 15 at The Fields at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. With Dave Matthews Band and Jack Johnson topping the bill of more than 40 bands during two days, 2010 promises to be the festival’s biggest and best year yet.

In addition to the headliners, 2010 performance highlights include Weezer, Steve Miller Band, My Morning Jacket, Slightly Stoopid, Atmosphere, Phoenix, Train, Nas & Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Keane, Bassnectar, Cypress Hill, Z-Trip, Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi Band, Drive-By Truckers, Railroad Earth, Ozomatli, and many others. The complete list of performers is below. Doors will open at 11:00 a.m. each day.

A relative newcomer on the national festival scene, Mile High Music Festival has already become a summer tradition for Colorado residents and for music fans from coast to coast. The festival grounds, with its remarkable views of the Denver skyline and Rocky Mountain Front Range, is the perfect backdrop for this diverse, lively, and distinctly Colorado music and arts festival.

The Fields at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park is conveniently located just nine miles from downtown Denver, and only 1.8 miles from the I-70 and Quebec exit.

2010 Mile High Music Festival Ticket prices follow. No additional charges or fees apply!

Mile High Music Festival Early Bird Tickets are $150.00 for a two-day, general-admission pass. Early Bird Ticket supplies are limited and will go quickly. Once the Early Bird Tickets are sold, the ticket price will be adjusted to $175.00 for a two-day pass while supplies last. The next ticket price level will be $200.00 for a two-day pass. No single day tickets are available.

Casper said...

Wait a minute, what about the city manager!

Whats going on here, what happened to the 72,000!!!!!!

Kidding, this will be great for Denver, I mean Commerce City!!!!!!

Chistol, CC said...


A little medical marijuana and it will be 2 days to remember!!!!!!

ALOTTA said...

I predict that the festival will see a huge increase in attendance this time around. Line Up is much improved.

Prices are still pretty good.

All in all a good thing.

RasherRods said...

too hippish, what happened to tool

OllieAnthony!!! said...

It is good to see that the promoters are learning every year. The first year was a little rough, and it is only getting better and better.

A great Colorado Tradition!

I will be there!

Sans said...

hey Gateway,

Is AEG going to give CC the % of sales to the Quality Community Foundation?

Jasmine, Commerce City said...

looks like they are targeting a little bit older crowd. A GOOD THING! I did not go last year, Tool was a bit on the harder side.

JJ and DMB are perfect mix.

ACE said...

CALM?! do you guys know how Cypress Hill is?

It will not be all flowers and braids.

Childress, Commerce City said...

BRING BACK 30H3!!!!!!!

Zeek, Commerce City said...

not too bad, pretty well rounded out.

I would love to see some more local acts

Is this the final lineup?

Anonymous said...

everyone already pretty much knew the lineup. Industry has a hard time keeping a secret.

Bobby, Brighton, CO said...

yes this is a commerce city event, despite the logo of the Denver skyline, but then again, what was the PR crew for the event going to do, put up a picture of suncor.

Still a great tax generator for the city of Denver.

It is nice for the city of commerce city to host this for Denver!

Rat_Atatte said...

GREAT Lineup! I will be there for SHORE

FYI for your readers said...

Two-day passes will start at $150, but that price will rise to $175 after supplies are depleted. After those sell out, two-day passes will sell for $200. Those prices include ticketing fees and tax.

Hyde said...

just Weezer alone is a reason to go. Great Great Great Lineup!

Renyolds R. said...

they could combine all the good acts on one day and save me a bunch of money.

tickets are a bit steep.

FYI for your readers said...

Other acts will be announced in the coming months.

TribeQwest said...

Danielle Ate the Sandwich should be the headliner!

I am just saying!

Jason E> said...

good stuff, but tixs are too high. Didn't AEG make enough money off Michael Jackson. Give us a break!

Ollie, Northern Guy said...

MHMF = great for the city of Denver!

thanks commerce city for helping out Denver!

Yuri said...

last year was good, lots of good food, shade and water. should be a good thing again. No Tool is a great thing.

Long time Resident of Commerce City said...

I was getting confused about all the comments about this being a great thing for Denver, so I did a little research:

I would like everyone to look at the package deals that are offered by way of the MHMF website.

All the hotels are in Denver.

Maybe you guys are right. This is a Great thing for Denver. What does Commerce City get out of this?

Tom Bradley, n. range, commerce city said...

YEA! take that Brighton, you can have your grocery stores and wind mill plants, WE GOT THE Mile High Music Festival and we are going to make a killing at Church's Chicken!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Derrick Keys, Commerce City Resident, Brighton Tax Payer said...

if chuck morris was smart he would not give Commerce City a dime for the grant program.

Think of this: the amount of money that we got for the last Mile Music Festival for the grants was about 1/4 of what we gave our city manager for protection from the housing down turn!!!!!!

Keep your money AEG, Commerce city doesn't have the capability to spend it in a responsible way!

Tank said...

Commerce City gots a Churchs!


Casper said...

Stop complaining about hotels packages, where the hell are the people going to stay!! the HiU!

Come on Commerce City, it is what it is!

Dustin McIntyre said...

To answer question about MHMF participating in charities, via their website.

Do any charities benefit from Mile High Music Festival?

Mile High Music Festival is proud to support the Quality Community Foundation. 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. Mile High Music Festival also hosts the Conscious Alliance Food Drive to benefit the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. Guests are encouraged to bring 10 non-perishable food items to the festival. Those who do receive a free, limited-edition art print.

Yuri said...

Majority rules.

Beth, Reunion said...

seat tax was shot down twice. don't ever seeing it coming to be.

we did lose out a lot by not having a set tax.

oh well, thats commerce city for you.

Todd and Lynn, Denver said...

Music festival is a little too pricey, I wish they could come down like 20 bucks

Jason Bradley said...

I would like to see the FRAY come back. also 3oh3.

Lackey said...

cant wait to see who else is going to sign up.

still hope to see the FRAY!

Yuri said...

I am confused, will there be a percentage of ticket sales going to the Commerce City Grant Program?

Dustin McIntyre, Gateway News said...

The charity program is built a bit differently this year, there is not a "per ticket" proceed but yes, there is a charity component that will benefit the Commerce City Quality Community for a Lifetime Foundation.

Great line up, better than last year, more like the first.
Better prices. My Gosh you can spend that for one entertainer for one show with a good seat.
Thanks, Music Festival
