Last year’s event left a mark on the music community in Denver, including Tiffiny Holiday of AmericanIndie.net (now What The Ruckus) when she reviewed the festival she said, “this really is Denver’s best summer event, and I can’t say that there was a time when there wasn’t a show going on that I didn’t want to see…I will be clearing my schedule for next year’s showcase”. Heather Browne, editor of the popular music blog, I Am Fuel, You Are Friends, calls it “the South By Southwest of Denver”, and for good reason. Artists featured at the festival over the past few years have gone on to become quite notable stars, such as Matt Morris who performed at last year’s event leading up to his album release, landing him a number one spot on iTunes.
