Mile High Music Festival 2011: Colorado’s Annual Music Party Goes on Hiatus Due to the Economy.

Dave Matthews was one of the staple acts of the Mile High Music Festival

Let’s face it, the economy’s putting the crunch on lots of things.

The latest victim is Denver’s Mile High Music Festival. The event ran for three seasons and featured headlining performers like the Dave Matthews Band, Widespread Panic, Jack Johnson and John Mayer.

The festival was also held in the hottest part of the summer for theĀ first two years — on a very dry soccer field. Last year, Mile High changed the concert dates to later in the summer, but the event still didn’t draw immense crowds.

Today, AEG Live Rocky Mountain announced that the Mile High Festival 2011 would be put on hold.

AEG Live Rocky Mountain Region President Chuck Morris/CEO said, “It was not an easy decision to put the festival on hold. We are really proud of the event, and we’re not ruling out the possibility of bringing it back in the future.”

The official Mile High press release cited the current economic climate as a major factor for putting the event on hiatus.

That should make this a very intertesting summer for the local music market. Does that mean that more bands will be available to play Boulder and Denver venues, because they’re not playing Mile High?

Stay tuned.
