Proudly supported by Denver7, Levitt recently announced ten additional shows and increased capacity for this summer’s free outdoor concert series.

The concerts are free, but RSVPs are required, and limited VIP tickets are available. Levitt Pavilion is now allowing 7,500 patrons, which is 37 percent of their max capacity. They plan to maintain this capacity without any further increases so patrons can continue to spread out safely distanced on the lawn at Ruby Hill Park. Read more about Levitt Pavilion’s COVID-19 policies and protocols here.

With the increased capacity, many previously announced shows that sold out of free general admission reservations, such as Devotchka, Flobots and Dustbowl Revival, are now available again, according to event organizers

Levitt Pavilion Denver is a nonprofit venue dedicated to building community through music. With a loss of $2 million in revenue due to COVID-19 closures in 2020 and the additional costs of production and safety procedures, they’re asking concert-goers to consider donating to their Comeback Fund to allow them to provide music accessibility and education while also supporting the local music scene.
