Grandoozy's Finale Ended a Great Weekend of Music, Art, & Exploration

The final day of Grandoozy was full of exploration, lots of laughs, and of course, some sweet tunes.

We wandered “The Break Room,” where attendees danced in a circle of speakers outside with live DJs spinning on deck. This was a popular spot in the early evening when it cooled down and people got their groove on. The “80s Ski Lodge” was more of the day dancing spot since it was fully enclosed and cool. Similar to “The Break Room,” a live DJ spun tunes for attendees who had access to a full bar, seating areas near a fake fireplace, and most importantly, full shade in the 93-degree heat. We also checked out the South Park carnival area, where festigoers could play various carnival games themed like the show.

The Backyard” had ample seating as well- there were chairlifts to people-watch in and even a full gondola that attendees could jump inside of for a picture. The small shopping district featured various vendors including Topo Designs, Kleen Kanteen, and even Never Summer snowboards because why not start thinking about that powder now, Colorado? Some vendors even included exclusive Grandoozy products, so if you wanted a sweet souvenir, this was the place to look!

Artist highlights of the day included soulful jams with Daniel Caesar, St. Vincent’s incredible and artistic set, a high-energy good time with De La Soul, a serious pyrotechnic adventure with The Chainsmokers, and a nightcap from legend Stevie Wonder, who played hits from across his catalogue with a massive band and even did a tribute to the late Aretha Franklin covering “Respect.”

Overall, we were very impressed with all that Superfly Presents had in store for festival attendees at Grandoozy. The weekend featured incredible headliner sets, great shows from local bands, live mural and canvas paintings from Denver artists, delicious Denver food and drinks, and so much more. This festival felt at home in Denver, and we can’t wait to see what’s next from the production team behind this fantastic festival.
