As chosen by YOU, we are excited to announce the Colorado bands who will join Rick Springfield, Uncle Kracker, Lovelytheband and DREAMERS on the Taste of Fort Collins lineup this June. 

We had over 100,000 votes total in our battle of the bands competition — so a big congratulations to blues rock group Three Shots, alternative rock band Holdfast. and folk rock group Places Back Home, who all had the most votes out of the top 30 bands and earned an automatic invitation to play on our stage.

Additionally, local acts Benjamin Bell, Colorado Swing Band, Guerrilla Fanfare with Spectra Circus, Johnny & The Mongrels, Pacific Nerve, The Timberline, VYNYL, and a Shelby and Scruggs DJ set are also scheduled to be part of the diverse lineup of performers.

Weekend passes for the June 7-9 event are currently just $20, while supplies last and available online at

The local battle of the bands competition sponsored by Fort Collins Connexion Broadband saw more than 160 performers submit to be considered.
