It's no secret that Denver's warehouse scene is back on the rise, and this weekend will see yet another contender join the arena. Downtown 82 will take place this Saturday, August 13th at a location that still remains to be announced and will feature some of the city's most underrated talent.
Unlike the by-the-numbers underground chiq event format common to the modern-day electronic music landscape, Downtown 82 will cater to true old school heads by including an indoor hip-hop stage. Los Angeles-based DJ Revolution and DJ Sean G will perform there, as well as supporting Denver local DJ Low Key.
With techno on the rise as of late, however, you'll more than likely see the bulk of the crowd at the outdoor Beatport stage. Hometown heroes Vedic and Ben A will perform a spirited back-to-back set there, in addition to locals K E E Z, Rose Hips, Hunter Leggitt and Semi-Tone Rabbit Holes.
Downtown 82 has partnered with Denver Secret Show for this event to form what they call "The Secret District." The full lineup is below, but to keep posted on additional announcements leading up to the event, make sure to follow Downtown 82 on Facebook and Twitter.
