Upslope Hosts First Annual Music Festival

Boulder, Colo. (April 14, 2014) – The arrival of spring’s warmer temperatures means one thing at Upslope Brewing Company – festival season. On Saturday, May 17 Upslope will join the fun by hosting the first annual ‘Upslope Get Down’ music festival. The no-charge event at the brewery’s Flatiron Park location will feature eight bands, playing continuously from 2 p.m. until midnight.

“Beer is our first love around here, but music is a very close second,” said Upslope Marketing Manager Katie Hill. “We’ve had our sights set on hosting a music festival for quite awhile and couldn’t be happier to make it happen this spring. The Upslope Get Down will be a great way to celebrate all the things we love with our local community.”

With two stages at opposing sides of the venue behind Upslope’s Flatiron Park facility, festivalgoers will be treated to ten hours of uninterrupted music by Fox Street, The Movement, Gipsy Moon, Good Gravy, Rocktin Grove, Hot Soup, Rowdy Shadehouse and a soon-to-be-announced headliner.

In addition to the nonstop onstage entertainment, one-of-a-kind specialty Upslope brews will be flowing and a number of local food trucks will be on-hand.

To ensure an environmentally friendly festival, Upslope has partnered with ZeroHero, the leading national authority in zero waste management, to easily recycle, compost and divert waste caused by the event.
