Fort Collins is known for its bikes, beers and bands. Now, local music supporters are bringing #focomusic to Austin.
CSU and Bohemian Foundation have teamed up with local arts supporters including the Downtown Business Association, Visit Fort Collins, and KRFC to host a full-day showcase featuring Fort Collins and Northern Colorado bands in Austin this week as part of the Colorado Music Party, an event happening alongside the South By Southwest music festival.
Play Fort Collins
This marks the third year the Colorado Music Party returns to Austin. Colorado Creative Industries, the Colorado Tourism Office and SpokesBUZZ present the Colorado Music Party. More than 25 local bands will perform during the daylong Play Fort Collins showcase on March 20 at Austin’s The 512 on Sixth Street. See the full line up at the Colorado Music Party website.
“We’re thrilled to be part of supporting this event and with helping to build and grow the amazing music scene here in Fort Collins. Being part of the arts community here is such a great thing for our faculty, staff and particularly our students. Anything we can do to support this vibrant scene, we’re committed to it,” said Tom Milligan, vice president for CSU External Relations.
