March is the month of spring break, St. Patrick’s day, and usually lots of snow for us here in Colorado. Yet, we can start seeing the distant warmth of summer ahead. The days start feeling longer and new waves of live music announcements certainly start filling in. Although it may not yet feel like festival season here in Denver, there are definitely tons of multi-day events going on both locally and beyond. So, here are ten of the best music festivals from across the globe happening next month!

Frozen Dead Guy Days: March 13 to March 15th (Nederland, CO)

Later on, the body was transported to Nederland and kept behind a family member’s shack. Today, Frozen Dead Guy Days feature thirty-live bands, fourteen food vendors and many outrageous events – spanning from the quintessential coffin races to human foosball.
