(Denver, Colo.) If the bone-chilling Denver weather has you daydreaming about warmer weather, a nice respite might be to start planning your summer concert experience.

Levitt Pavilion Denver has released the lineup for its first wave of free concerts and a number of ticketed shows, including Tears for Fears and Elvis Costello.

“After experiencing a year without live music in 2020, then an extremely arduous but gratifying comeback season in 2021, we are thrilled to enter our fifth season of providing family-friendly outdoor concerts where our friends and neighbors can reconnect,” Executive Director and Founder Chris Zacher said. “With the tenuous economic situation our country is facing, free all-ages concerts are an essential meeting ground for our community to come together free of financial barriers.”

Donations, sponsorships and onsite concession sales fund the nonprofit music venue. Levitt recently launched its annual fundraising campaign to raise $25,000 to support the upcoming concert season.

Drumroll, please!
