Listen to great music.

Wildermiss - This quartet delivers a smart brand of guitar-driven pop rock and was born right here at CU Denver. Three former members of Red Fox Run are joined by the soaring vocals of Emma Cole, whose expressive voice evokes the silken strains of Ellie Goulding and Hayley Williams.

Edison - Featuring singer/guitarist Sarah Slaton, multi-instrumentalist Dustin Morris and Grammy-nominated guitarist Maxwell Hughes, Edison is an indie rock trio from Colorado that has quickly emerged as a musical force.

DJ Chonz - Also known as CU Denver alum Mario Rodriguez, DJ Chonz, of KS107.5, is one of the most recognizable DJs in Colorado.



Feeling daring?

Are you and your friends ready for Meltdown! Four players battle it out to be the last one standing. 

We'll have our own rock climbing wall to get you excited about the massive one being constructed in the new Student Wellness Center.



See you downtown on August 24, 2017!

Thank you to our sponsors . . .
