Promoters Say Mile High Music Fest Is On Hiatus

DENVER (CBS4) – There will be no Mile High Music Festival this year.

Promoters announced Tuesday that the festival is on hold. Organizer Chuck Morris, president and CEO of AEG Live Rocky Mountain Region, said in a prepared statement that the decision was not an easy one.

“We are really proud of the event, and we’re not ruling out the possibility of bringing it back in the future,” he said.

Festival organizers said the current economic climate was a contributing factor in their decision.

There have been some questions about the venue in Commerce City — rather than City Park — and the lack of camping facilities boosting the cost for people coming in from out of town.

    Each and EVERY festival I attend is a super sucess and they sell out without a problem.
    The reason this festival was a failure is because it’s NOT a festival. It’s 3 days of concerts, not a festival. A festival has people camping on site and noone has to worry about driving across town intoxicated after the show.
    With camping, the Mile High Music Festival would be a real; festival with sell out crowds.
    Make it happen you morons!

    Good public transportation would help. Outside Lands in San Francisco is a huge success with no camping…but they make it possible to get back home or to hotels without driving. No reason Denver can’t achieve the same thing.

    Oh well, those festivals or concerts or whatever you want to call them are nothing but a lot of unnecessary racket anyway.

    Nothing like that would ever happen in Denver because the town is too much of a redneck cow town.

      Then move to San Fransisco.

    The festival “was a success” you fricking moron……just ask the tens or hundreds of thousands that attended the last 2 years…..there’s always someone like you that hasn’t a clue to make comments that are unfounded and untrue…..let me guess you never even attended the fest……..the only racket being heard is your mouth!
