The lineup for the first ever Mile High Music Festival powered by SanDisk, has been unveiled. Over 40 artists are scheduled to appear July 19th and 20th at the Outer Fields at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Colorado. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers will headline on Saturday, July 19th; Dave Matthews Band will top the bill on Sunday, July 20th. The lineup also consists of John Mayer, the Black Crowes, O.A.R., Michael Franti & Spearhead, Rodrigo Y Gabriela, Steve Winwood, Spoon, Flogging Molly, Colbie Caillat, One Republic, the Roots and many others. This is a festival of the greatest magnitude one which Colorado has never before been a host to. The festival will be hosting five stages (some tented), food from many of Denver’s top restaurants, an artists’ village, misting tents and more.

The Festival has a “Carpool to Mile High” Contest. The contest encourages patrons to “Go Green” by carpooling with four or more people in one vehicle. Here’s how it works: Make a fun and noticeable sign in your car window telling everybody who can see, that you are carpooling. Sign must in include the words: “Carpool to Mile High”. When you arrive at the Festival go to the 64th Avenue entrance and follow signs to Carpool Parking. In addition to premium, close-in parking, you will be automatically entered to win VIP passes and access to a MHMF artist meet-and-greet for everyone in your car. Winner’s license plate numbers will be announced on the Main Stage video screens at 5 PM both days, and prizes will be redeemed at the Merchandise Tent. All cars admitted in the carpool lot will be entered to win.

Not only is the festival encouraging their patrons to “Go Green,” it is also hosting a food drive to benefit the Food Bank of the Rockies. Patrons donating 10 non-perishable food items, or $10.00, will receive a limited edition Conscious Alliance/Mile High Music Festival poster by rock artist Randy Bishop. Volunteers will be stationed outside the festival’s main entrances, where patrons can exchange their donations for a voucher that is redeemable at the Conscious Alliance booth inside the venue.

This is shaping up to be a great two-day event. Don’t miss your chance to attend this awesome opportunity to hear some of the biggest music acts around and help support the community at the same time.
