If you’re still holding out on grabbing a ticket for Grandoozy music festival, it might be time to dive in. The festival organizers have added an electronic-themed “Break Room” for those who choose to escape the chaos of the rest of the festival, and want to get down to some intimate electronic music. Claiming to bring a nightclub to an outside setting, the Break Room will host 12 acts, each providing their own unique style to those who join them.
Taking over Break Room stage will be Jon Hopkins (performing a DJ set), Tensnake, Doc Martin, Heidi, Soul Clap, Leon Vynehall, Purple Disco Machine, Eli Escobar, Kim Ann Foxman, Deep Club Deejays, Nocturnal Residents and Weird Touch. The last three groups are some favorites of the local Denver electronic scene. Nocturnal has spent years providing unique experiences for Denver’s music lovers by performing at new venues, including different types of art in their shows and incorporating community input into the event planning. The goal for Nocturnal is to be able to provide Denver with shows as full of character as possible, trying to recreate the late-night after-hours feel.
Festival organizers also added four local acts to the lineup. Additions include SunSquabi who recently brought their live electro-funk to Red Rocks and Head For The Hills, a four-piece string band that somehow effortlessly blends bluegrass, indie-rock and hip-hop. Also added to the lineup is The Drunken Hearts — an electrifying Americana band and alt-rock group AMZY. These four groups are joining four other local acts, Tennis, Gasoline Lollipops, Flaural and Dragondeer. Now, festival organizers are giving us a taste of everything Colorado music has to offer.
