Bohemian Nights at NewWestFest to be held third week of August

Bohemian Nights at NewWestFest, a three-day music festival, will be held this year from Aug. 14-16 in historic Old Town.

NewWestFest is free to the public and will be headlined by three popular bands, one for each day of the festival. The festival lineup features local favorites and lesser-known bands alongside the more well-known names. Colorado hip hop band Flobots will headline Aug. 14, classic rock band the Steve Miller Band will headline Aug. 15 and Mexican acoustic duo Rodrigo y Gabriela headlines the festival Aug. 16.


NewWestFest is produced by the Downtown Fort Collins Business Association and with the Bohemian Nights Foundation. It has become something of a Fort Collins tradition, and has been held annually in Old Town for more than eight years. The festival features a wide range of music genres to appeal to every taste, from acoustic guitar duets to electronica, and will also have a stage specifically for kids’ music.

Construction on Old Town Square will be mostly completed by the day of the festival, but the space will not be available for the show itself. NewWestFest shows will be staged across town on five different stages, which are labelled on a festival map provided by the Bohemian Nights foundation. The three headlining shows will perform only at the mountain stage.

The festival will kick off at 5 p.m. Aug. 14 with indie band Savage Cabbage on the mountain stage and rock band Winchester Holiday on the library park stage.
