After being denied a permit at May Farms in Byers, Colorado, this fall’s Denver edition of the Riot Fest has been moved to a new home.
It will now be held at the Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium in Denver between September 19 and September 21.
The organizers of the festival said:
“Riot Fest and Sideshow in Denver. Thank you for being patient this past week. We are thrilled to announce the new venue will be Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium in downtown Denver located at 1701 Bryant St, Denver, CO 80204. All tickets will be honored at the new location and refunds for those who purchased camping spots will be forthcoming.
“We have a lot of information for you, so please read everything carefully.
“Unfortunately, some people didn’t want YOU or US in their town. Since we were forced to move Riot Fest away from its inaugural home in Byers, CO, we are bringing Byers to you at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium in downtown Denver on Sept. 19-21st. Plans include turfing the parking lot of the stadium and bringing all the things to love about a farm (tractors, hay bales, etc) together with all the things to love about a fair (rides, pie eating contest, apple bobbing, etc).
“Thank you Riot Fest fans and family for being patient this past week and thank you for standing alongside us. And even though Riot Fest will be at Mile High Stadium this year, we have officially filed an appeal with Arapahoe County as of this morning because we know we are right. Again, all tickets will be honored at the new location and refunds for those who purchased camping spots will be forthcoming.”
