The Mile High Music Festival is going to do whatever it takes to draw fans into the Aug. 14-15 event.
Start thinking of this fest as a carnival with musical attractions, ’cause these guys are bringing in everything but the kitchen sink.
Step right up and ride the Mile High ferris wheel or take rides in tethered air balloons. Music fans will also be able to check out the Twist & Shout record store tent, see artist Christian Ristow crush junk cars or head to a water playground.
As if that wasn’t enough, concert-goers will be able to earn green initiatives at the fest, get a “passport” stamped and earn a chance to meet members of the Dave Matthews Band.
Wait, there’s even more.
The festival just brought in the giant Anubis statue from the Denver Art Museum’s King Tut exhibit. English translation – that”s a statue of the Egyptian God of the Underworld. That is a tad creepy.
Will all these side-show perks be enough to get people to buy tickets to the fest?
Time will tell.
