Who: Founded in 2000, the Underground Music Showcase (UMS) is an annual multi-day, music-themed neighborhood takeover featuring hundreds of bands across multiple outdoor stages and more than a dozen venues.
What: The largest indie music festival in the Rocky Mountain region, UMS provides an in-depth look into Denver’s vibrant indie music scene, featuring hundreds of bands including national headliners and local up-and-coming artists.
When: July 27 - 29, 2018
Where: Denver’s Baker / South Broadway neighborhood
Why: UMS is a three-day discovery of the multiverse of incredibly talented bands from in and around the Denver metro area, in addition to national acts. More than just a music festival, UMS attendees can expect an elevated food and beverage program, plenty of live entertainment including comedy acts and podcast recordings, panel discussions and, of course, the best live music the city has to offer.
UMS provides Denverites with the opportunity to discover new musical acts, simply by walking down the street. South Broadway is lined with unique restaurants, bars and shops offering attendees the opportunity to stumble upon new local favorites along the corridor. All of this makes for an ideal summer weekend spent taking in live acts, eating and drinking, and exploring on one of Denver’s most iconic strips.
Two Parts purchased UMS from The Denver Post Community Foundation in January 2018. Since taking over the festival, Two Parts has been working collaboratively with the City of Denver and talent agents to continue building on the success of the past 17 years.
Tickets for 2018 UMS will go on sale on May 31 at 10 a.m. MST. Additional details including headliners and the complete lineup will be announced later this spring. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit undergroundmusicshowcase.com.
