The Grand Junction Off-Road & Downtown Music Festival is excited to announce the musical lineup for the 2016 event scheduled for May 20-22, 2016 on Main Street in Downtown Grand Junction. The festival features three days of music on three stages along with a four block beer garden and is the second year of the combined festival.
Denver based band, Head for the Hills, will headline the main stage Friday evening at 8:30pm followed by The Stone Foxes, out of San Francisco, on Saturday at 8pm. Other regional acts include Changing Lanes Experience, Quiet Life, Mama Magnolia, Atomga, Stray Grass, and Tight Thump, as well as local favorites such as We Speak Imaginese, Bobby Walker, Wave Baby, Radicult, the Doug Simons Band, Still House String Band, Clive McGee, Alycia Vince, Soul Habit and Gonzales with Bicycle Annie. In addition to the main stage at 4th and Main, the festival also has stages in the breezeways on the 500 and 600 block of Main street, creating unique venues for both performers and festival attendees.
New this year to the festival is Dirt Church, which will take place on Sunday, May 22 from 10:30a-2:30p and include a gospel performance from Salt Lake City band, Changing Lanes Experience, Sierra Nevada Micheladas and Off-Road Mimosas, as well as breakfast food trucks. The Grand Junction Off-Road boasts a large number of professional riders for their pro race on Sunday morning and Dirt Church- slang used by mountain bikers for riding on Sunday morning- was organized as a fun way to get a larger crowd down to watch the pros.
The Grand Junction Off-Road, in it’s fourth year, and the Downtown Music Festival, in it’s 28th year, combined in 2015 and was deemed the most successful event ever to take place in Downtown Grand Junction by the public. Over 10,000 people attended the festival produced by the Downtown Business Improvement District and Epic Rides.
