Over 30 bands, many being from Colorado, will perform on three stages every Friday and Saturday before each home football game.


According to Stadium Session’s website, these concerts are “Colorado State’s celebration of our city’s finest: community, music, and Ram Pride.”

Here are some of the most anticipated headlining acts:

This northern Colorado band has a unique mix of 80s synth and alternative rock. They have been making a buzz in the Denver music scene and have even been featured on Sirius-XM channel “Alt Nation.” According to their website, this band is inspired by “late nights in Hollywood, high speed car chases, red eye flights and vintage skateboard videos.”

Band: Danielle Ate the Sandwich

Listen to: “On the Planet Earth”

Danielle Anderson is a ukulele playing vocalist from Grant, Nebraska, but she is now based here in Fort Collins. Her songs range from thoughtful to playful but always deliver lyrics young people can relate to.
