Colorado has quickly become a hotspot for great music. As you travel around the state, you’ll immediately feel the passion that people have for the music industry, both as musicians and fans alike.

Specifically, the Mile High city is home to numerous top-notch music venues and dance clubs – from large, outdoor theaters like Red Rocks Amphitheater, to small, intimate spots like The Fillmore or Cervantes Masterpiece. Each location offers a distinct experience, so be sure to catch a show at each to choose your favorite.

Thankfully, the music scene in Colorado is also diverse. On any given weekend, you’ll find shows featuring rock bands, electronic DJs, jazz musicians, hip-hop artists, orchestras and bluegrass bands.

Music paired with cannabis makes for one memorable 4/20 weekend. Be sure to check back frequently as concerts are added!

Cigarettes After Sex front man Greg Gonzalez had a clear vision for his band’s debut album, a gorgeously cinematic work released via Partisan Records on June 9th, 2017. After the phenomenal online break-out success of 2015’s reverberant beauty ‘Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby’ from the early Cigarettes EP (‘I.’) from 2012, the Brooklyn transplant (originally from El Paso) wanted to project his worldview on to a bigger screen, a broader canvas. As Greg explains, “This is like the novel or feature-length version of Cigarettes. I wanted it to feel like a complete work, where some of the imagery repeats – like it’s all in the same world. It’s very much a fulfilment of the feelings in the short works.”

Temple Presents Getter For A 420 Celebration

There are plenty of bass music producers out there grinding away at the seemingly never-ending task of securing a plot of EDM acreage. But Getter, otherwise known at Tanner Petulla, has become increasingly adept at identifying previously unused musical real estate off the grid, bulldozing his current musical ideologies, and then rebuilding an entirely new, futuristic neon palace devoted to reinvention and experimentation.

Where to Buy

Denver is home to hundreds of awesome dispensaries, making it hard to choose only a few. Click here for a full list of dispensaries in the Mile High. Remember, both tourists and locals are allowed to purchase and possess up to 1oz of marijuana (or its equivalents) at a time.

Every shop is different, but here are a few of our favorites:

  • Native Roots – Denver (Denver, CO)

    Native Roots has 17 locations across the state of Colorado, and for good reason. Their flagship store is located near the 16th Street walking mall in downtown Denver. From seed to soil, NR offers high quality bud and service for both medical and recreational customers. They’ve partnered with musicians and other celebrities, often with artists like Griz and Big Gigantic to create specialty strains that must be tried.

  • The Green Solution – Peoria (Denver, CO)

    The Green Solution is one of the most-awarded dispensaries in Colorado, with an impressive 12 locations. Their shop on Peoria is an impressive selection for recreational and medical customers. With close ties to musicians throughout the state (and country), TGS knows what they’re doing – from great bud to awesome budtenders, you won’t be disappointed.

  • The Station (Boulder, CO)

    The Station boasts quality recreational and medical cannabis products. With an incredibly knowledgeable staff and a welcoming store ambiance, you’ll feel right at home the moment you walk in. Conveniently located along 28th Street, you’ll be in and out in no time before for your next show at The Fox and Boulder Theatre.

  • Terrapin Care Station (Boulder, CO)

    Terrapin has five locations throughout the state (and a shop in Eugene, OR). They provide recreational and medical cannabis customers with the finest quality bud that’s grown using low-impact cultivation practices (that makes their cannabis extra green). Stop by to grab flower, edibles or their convenient, half-gram Terrapin packs.

Where to Stay

There are a number of cannabis-friendly hotels and private residences that allow consumption in and around Denver, CO. Remember that most places will only allow vaporization (vs. combustion), so make your purchases wisely. 

For a full list of available accommodations, click here.

Where to Eat

Denver has an incredible number of delicious restaurants for you to choose from. From sit-down dinners to grab-and-go bites.

Here’s a short list of our favorites:

  • Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox (American, $$)

    This centrally located restaurant is known for its “gastro-brothel” vibe with live music and eclectic American food. They’re owned and run by one of the most popular restaurant groups in town, so the food and ambiance won’t disappoint! Reservations are recommended.

  • The Walnut Room (Pizza, $$)

    This thin-crust, Chicago-style pizza place offers a heated patio, affordable drinks and live music all year round. It’s a casual eatery and bar that’s sure to hit your late-night pizza cravings.

  • Summit Music Hall (Bar Food, $)

    Check out this premiere music venue in LoDo (lower downtown), only one block from Coors Field. The Summit offers great beer and bar food to make anyone happy.

  • Illegal Pete’s (Mexican, $)

    With five locations around Denver, you’ll find great food for a great price. Illegal Pete’s serves all-natural meats and organic ingredients and nothing is pre-made, which means the best bite in every mouthful.
