We’re happy to announce that Velorama Colorado will close with performances from alt-country superstars Old 97’s and the Jayhawks and a lineup of up-and-coming Colorado bands all performing from a stage highlighting Take Note Colorado, a statewide music initiative chaired by Gov. John Hickenlooper and Isaac Slade of The Fray.
“Coloradans love and appreciate great live music. These notable acts are the perfect way to wrap up the Velorama festival while drawing attention to Take Note Colorado, the effort that will provide every K-12 student in the state access to instruments and music lessons,” said Hickenlooper.
Live music on the Velorama festival’s final day (Sunday, Aug. 13) will be heard from the Take Note Colorado Stage, which is being constructed specifically for the event’s closing-night street party at 35th and Larimer streets.
“Like the dispute over the peanut butter cup, cycling fans can argue that we got a music festival into their bike race or music fans can argue that we got a bike race into their music festival. Either way, Velorama promises to be a weekend filled with world-class cycling, broadly appealing music and more,” said David Koff, CEO of RPM Events Group.
Headlining the music festivities August 13 will be Old 97’s, who are expected to perform at 7:45 p.m. Other musicians on the bill include the Jayhawks, and Colorado artists Rob Drabkin and the winner of the Road To Velorama concert series.
