Sundown: When & Where is it?

Sundown is taking place this Saturday. It takes place downtown on the Tivoli Quad on the Auraria Campus. The event goes from 2 pm until 11 am and will be a blast!

Sundown: What is it?

The opposite of addiction is not sobriety; the opposite of addiction is connection.”

 Sundown is a rejuvenating music festival that focuses on music and fostering genuine connections. The goal of this festival is to leave it feeling better than you came in. Rather than leaving tired and drained, leave feeling ready to take on the world! Through amazing detox workshops, yoga and meditation, there’s no way to not leave feeling refreshed! The festival has some amazing music performers, but there is so much more to do outside of the music! 

Here’s how to get the most out of Sundown Fest!

First, grab a refreshing non-alcoholic beverage provided by Spiritless, a new conscious cocktail company that serves non-alcoholic beverages. After you grab your drink, stop by the meditation tent and get some radical healing. Various detox workshops will help you learn how to go addiction free naturally, about herbs and other healing remedies from our wellness experts.  

Afterward, hit the festival to hear some music. Chair massages, energy readings, and energy IVs are also available. Once you get tired, hit up one of the LED lounges to recharge. Make sure to check out the art and various live performers around the festival. If you get hungry, there are plenty of health-conscious food trucks available. Leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Sundown: Who is Playing?

Some amazing artists are on the lineup, starting with tons of locals. Kicking off the party at two is Karl Funhouse, who is known for his “Wizard Bass.” After him, DJ Silec is hitting the decks and bringing some space disco your way. Amberdehn is up next, and she’s bringing the Denver house vibes. Ignight is hitting the stage next, bringing the dance music vibes. TASHAXMARO is up next, and she’ll be bringing that downtempo heat! 

Up next to the decks are the festival founders, DoubleCrush! They are a DJ duo who drop some dope house beats full of life and love!
