Grandoozy: Denver’s Dream Music Festival


Courtesy Facebook

A “doozy” is defined as something outstanding or one-of-a-kind. Add the word “grand” and you have Grandoozy, Denver’s newest three-day festival, jam-packed with music and experiences sure to live up to its name. Whether you’re a music lover, food fanatic, or outdoor enthusiast, you won’t want to miss all the fun at Overland Park, Sept. 14-16.

This is more than a music festival; it also includes yoga, curated food, and educational panels, all brought to you by the co-creators of Bonnaroo and Outside Lands. Besides performances by headliners like Kendrick Lamar, Florence & the Machine, and Stevie Wonder, there will be a variety of “experiences,” many curated for the fest by local experts.

Clear your mind, stretch those dancing legs, and start each day with yoga in the break room. Then head over to one of the many non-profit tents to learn how you can make a difference in your community. Check out the educational panel series each day, focusing on environmental politics and the health benefits of being outside (something every Coloradan should be familiar with).

The all-day dance area will have DJs spinning tracks to loosen you up and get you ready for bigger acts like The Chainsmokers, Miguel, and SunSquabi. You can also make your way to the ’80s ski lodge and get down with DJ sets and a hair metal cover band.

With more than 50 curated culinary vendors, including Denver distilleries, breweries, spirits, and restaurants, there’s a lot of eats to choose from.

Doozy not only has something for your ears, mind, and belly, but your eyes as well. Browse outdoor lifestyle brands in the curated marketplace and watch local artists paint murals.

The festival goes from 1:30 to 10 p.m. each day. Single-day tickets are $110, and three-day tickets are $279.50.
