If rock, country, blues music, and Colorado sound like your perfect mix, you’ve come to the right place, friend! The Rocky Mountain Music festival is an annual event that takes place in Littleton, Colorado and is packed to the gills with quality performers from those exact musical genres.
Kicked off back in 2011, the event takes place during the month of August, featuring performances from some of the all-time musical giants, as well as the local acts that earned their spot on the bill through good ole battle of the bands contests.
In 2015, the festival is taking a break, or a “sabbatical” as they kindly noted, but the gang will be back with fury next year.
In the absence of the Rocky Mountain, the organizers have assembled the Evergreen Bluegrass Festival as a tribute to late Tom Hushen. Featuring the one and only Blue Canyon Boys, it will certainly be a sight to see.
