THE SCENE

The UMS is a unique event in many ways, from the sheer number of performing bands, dj’s, comedians and singer-songwriters, to the duration of the event (four days), to the convenience of staging it all within a few blocks along the South Broadway arts district. It’s where the city of Denver and its music fans convene every July. It’s a congregation, an event, and a place where you’ll not only hear established performers, but those who are just about to break.

    I was wondering if this was a beat showcase, if so I think I may

    want to be apart of it! I’ve been producing music for almost 8

    years, but this would be my first showcase I’ve entered. My

    producing name is 80Eight and from Los Angeles California.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Thanks

    Hi there, I work for a magazine called New Culture Magazine located here in Denver and was wondering if it was an option to be a sponsor for the 2013 UMS? If so, how do we go about applying for that? Please email me a detailed message at cierra.newculturemagazine@gmail.com. Thanks!
