The City Of Denver has granted Superfly Productions a contract to host a festival in September 2018. The 10-3 vote by the City Council paves the way for the three-day event to held in South Denver at Overland Park Golf Course.
According to The Know, the heavily negoitiated five-year contract Superfly signed with the City of Denver allows for a three-day festival to be thrown the second or third weekend of September starting next year. Superfly Productions also organizes the annual Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in rural Tennessee and the Outside Lands festival in San Francisco.
“I do believe this is a good contract,” said councilman Jolon Clark, who represents District 7 where the festival will be held. “It’s a contract that protects the golf course, that protects the neighborhood … and brings revenue to the neighborhood that can be used for projects that the citizens have been asking for for years.”
The Know’s report also states Denver officials expect $2 million payout for the city from the festival whose attendance is projected to eventually grow to 70,000 a day. Head here for the complete report from the Denver Post’s blog.
