Summer Concerts around Longmont, Colorado

With so many concerts coming to Longmont, city officials might consider renaming the town Songmont, at least until the summer ends. Whether you’re a fan of old-school music, modern-day tunes, or all that jazz, chances are you can find something for your listening pleasure. A few of the options coming down the performance pike include:

Mojomama Rockin the Farm

Mojomama, a blues band that hails from Longmont, is playing at the LaJoyia Farm on May 14th. This event was such a success in 2021 that they’re bringing it back again. The farm will serve snacks and its homemade peppermint iced tea. Space is limited; there are only 75 tickets available and even fewer parking spots. Bring a picnic dinner, a lawn chair, or a blanket and see what happens when rural life meets rock and roll.

The Long Run Eagles Tribute Band

Do you want to take it to the limit? Are you looking for a peaceful, easy feeling? Then you’re in for a treat on May 14th. The Long Run, an Eagles tribute band that began in 2009, is playing at the Dickens Opera House on Main Street in Longmont.

The Long Run has previously played at the Paramount Theatre, Red Rocks, and all over the Four Corners region. If you’re a fan of Don Henley and Glen Frey, they’re a must-see act and a can’t-miss good time. 

Rhythm on the River

The Rhythm on the River Festival takes place in Longmont on July 8th and 9th. The scheduled lineup includes the 89s, Many Mountains, Taylor Shae, Augustus, and Sturtz (among others).

Of course, this event is more than meets the ears; it also features a plethora of food and beverage vendors, a 5k river run, an outdoor adventureland and other child-centric activities, arts and crafts, a mobile arcade, and duck races. 

50th Annual RockyGrass Festival

While technically in Lyons, which is a twelve-mile jaunt from Longmont, RockyGrass is the epitome of a bluegrass festival. Nestled between rusty red cliffs and looming trees, it invites patrons to go for the music and stay for the atmosphere.

This three-day festival kicks off July 29th and features performances by the Punch Brothers, the Yonder Mountain String Band, the Becky Buller Band, Uncommon Ritual, the Tray Wellington Band, and more.

Rocky Mountain Folks Festival

The Rocky Mountain Folks Festival (also in Lyons) takes place August 12th-14th. With a lineup that includes the Indigo Girls, Yola, Ani DiFranco, Sarah Jarosz, and Bruce Hornsby, this festival is filled with up-and-comers as well as superstars of music’s past. It’s the perfect time to enjoy the sounds of the season along the St. Vrain River. Concert goers are encouraged to double as campers and stay on the grounds for a fully immersive experience.

From blues concerts to cover bands, the plains are alive with the sound of music. Get your tickets and tune in to summer time.
