Lord Huron began as a solo indie folk act featuring Ben Schneider. Now they’ve grown into an impressive band.

Mudhoney is best known for taking on the grunge rock scene in Seattle. Now they’re back with traces of punk and a heavy blues rock.

Small Black out of Brooklyn plays a form of indie rock that has been described as chillwave.

Also on the lineup, The Fresh & Onlys are leading the wave of the new garage rock sound in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Born in the Flood is a local band that’s originally from Missouri but has set roots and grown in Denver’s local music scene.

The music festival has stages all along South Broadway inside restaurants, galleries and clubs and there’s a main stage at Broadway and Archer.
