Saturday’s a big day for all-day music events in Denver, and we’ve got two to tell you about here.

Featured acts include The Railbenders, Birch Street, Places, Vices I Admire, Take to the Oars, Red Fox Run, Rebel Tongue, Attic Attack, Lionized and more. Tickets are $20 advance, $25 day of show (plus service charge), and can be purchased here. VIP passes (including food buffet and all you can drink) are also available. First performance starts at 11:45 AM. No age limit listed on the event, but everyone will be carded.

The Cultivate Festival, an annual event sponsored by Chipotle Restaurants, features chefs, artisans, farmers and great food to raise awareness for sustainable, wholesome food. Great music is also part of the event. The Denver Cultivate Festival will take place at City Park on Saturday, and will feature performances by several national acts, including Cold War Kids, Blitzen Trapper, Good Old War, Allen Stone, Chris Golub and Denver’s own Air Dubai. Festivities kick off around 11:00 AM, and run all the way to 7:00 PM. Best of all–it’s FREE and open to the public.

Have a happy and safe weekend!
