Today the City of Denver’s Office of Special Events recommended a full speed ahead approach in getting a festival to the city — specifically the Overland Park Golf Course — as early as next year. Superfly has been fully named as the ones they want to put it on.
The festival would be produced solely by Superfly…Though they had initially worked together on the proposal, AEG will no longer be involved in producing the event.
The city seems excited, AEG seems cool with it, and really the next steps are just contract negotiations. Given that Outside Lands has already gone 10 years deep in the city of San Francisco, I think Denver is getting wise to what opportunity they’ve left on the table during the summer months and we’ll probably definitely see this thing come to life in 2018. Can’t wait to see what gets booked.
