The annual free (that’s right, free) Fort Collins music showcase, Bohemian Nights at NewWestFest is back this August 10 through 12. Over the course of three days, over 80 bands will play the showcase on six stages.
Taking place in Old Town Fort Collins, the 2018 festival features headlining performances from Blondie, The Decemberists and The Motet. The lineup is also packed with local Colorado favorites like Brent Cowles, ATOMGA, Dirty Few, King Cardinal, Slow Caves, The Hollow, The Velveteers, TNERTLE and so many more. Last year, Bohemian Nights featured performances from Brandi Carlile, Leftover Salmon and CAKE.
In addition to music, there are over 250 art and food booths to peruse as well. The festival is hosted by the Bohemian Foundation and the Downtown Fort Collins Business Association. The Bohemian Foundation is a family foundation that works to build strong communities locally, nationally and even globally. Staying in line with their foundation, there will be two kid-friendly sections at this year’s festival, like the last.
Bohemian Nights also hosts Thursday Night Live in Fort Collins, every Thursday from May 31 through August 2. The events showcase emerging talent from Colorado and are also free.
