National Acts Grace the Keystone Stage this Weekend at Mountain Town Music Festival – August 19!

Shovels & Rope along with Strange Americans, Mipso and Ages & Ages come to Keystone on Saturday, August 19th for Mountain Town Music Festival!

It’s a fresh-air, fresh food and fresh music festival at Keystone Resort on Aug. 19. The Mountain Town Music Festival returns to River Run Village as the perfect way to celebrate the end of summer with the most delicious dishes from Colorado’s harvest, free concerts by up-and-coming bands like Shovels & Ropeand Colorado brews from New Belgium.

In addition to Shovels & Rope, the other musicians and bands performing for free at the Keystone Mountain Town Music Festival are:

  • Ages and Ages: An American rock band from Portland, Oregon that has an upbeat “big tent revivial” sound.
  • Mipso: This four-member band is a little bit country and a lot of folk rock. They just released a new album, Coming Down the Mountain.
  • Strange Americans: This Denver band prides themselves on being a “little raw, a bit loud, unapologetic and honest.” It’s Americana rock and roll for the hard-working folks.

Admission to the festival is free and so is the parking. Food and drinks are available at a la carte prices. The Festival will also feature Colorado artisans displaying and selling their original art, jewelry, clothing, hammocks and other items and as always the Kidtopia Kidszone will be in full effect with face painting and a chance to plant your own flower pot. It all culminates with a booming fireworks display over River Run Village on Saturday night.

Admission to the festival is free. Food and drinks are available at a la carte prices. Get your lodging in advance.
