About UMS
In 2001, the Underground Music Showcase was conceived as a humble, one-day, locals-only concert highlighting the diverse music scene in Denver, CO. Over the years, UMS has grown into a booming three-day national music festival, celebrating the arts from Denver and beyond. Every July during UMS weekend, the mile-long strip of South Broadway in the Baker neighborhood of the Mile High City transforms into a bustling open-air and open-minded community of artists, creators, dreamers, musicians, and fans all celebrating together. Continuing for three straight days and nights, UMS’ reputation as a marathon of music and parties is unmatched.
Now in its 20th year, UMS has become a highly-anticipated and vital annual event, deeply infused in Denver’s thriving independent music scene. Although UMS 2020 will look and feel different, UMS is committed to supporting its community during these unprecedented times… and so, the show must and will go on! Please visit for more information.
