Electric Avenue Music and Arts Festival has just announced a Late Night All Star Jam featuring Kyle Hollingsworth and Michael Kang of SCI along with Speech of Arrested Development, Dominic Lalli of Big Gigantic and many others from this historic downtown event (Additional $15).

The Electric Avenue Festival, which is slated to take place over Labor Day weekend on the streets of Historic Five Points in Downtown Denver, has just announced their two-day schedule. The event will highlight over 22 live bands on two stages, arts and crafts vendors, outdoor beer and liquor tents as well as food booths representing the best in Colorado eatery. And, at a price of only $65 for a two-day pass or $130 for a two-day VIP Pass, it may be the most exciting and definitely the most affordable event in Colorado for music goers over the holiday.

Taking place on Sept 4th and 5th the event features a stellar line up of independent live music including Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Living Legends, Kyle Hollingsworth Band, Greensky Bluegrass, Pnuma Trio and even a Michael Jackson Tribute band aptly named "Who's Bad" among others.

The newly revitalized Five Points district is seeing an amazing surge in artistic and retail growth over the last few years. With a dramatic drop in crime and a bustling music scene developing under the new management at Cervantes' Masterpiece Ballroom, their self-produced outdoor event is just one of many signs of transformation in this quaint historic neighborhood.

Event organizers are expecting over 4,000 people during the two day event which will feature an array of musical styles from Rock, Jam, Jazz/Funk, Hip Hop, Electronic, Bluegrass and Experimental music genres. Event participants will find ample parking and an urban festival environment that is so close to the heart of the city, area residents are encouraged to bike ride to the event grounds or take the Light Rail directly to festival gates.

The two-day and three-night event will take place between September 3-5th on Welton St. between 26th and 27th Streets as well as inside Cervantes' and The Other Side, with music starts at 1PM each day and a kick-off party featuring Who's Bad - The Ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute Band taking place on Friday, September 3rd.
