The 12th annual Denver Post Underground Music Showcase is July 19th – 22nd. The UMS has always been at the forefront of Colorado’s incredible music community. In 2012, the UMS will present 4 days of music, art and video that includes hundreds of local and national acts performing in venues up and down South Broadway in the historic Baker District.

There are 20 slots reserved for Sonicbids artists this year.

Past editions of the UMS have featured performances by nationally known acts Sage Francis, Gauntlet Hair, Generationals, Hellogoodbye, Flobots, DeVotchka, El Ten Eleven, 16 Horsepower, These United States, Nathaniel Rateliff, Paper Bird, Gregory Alan Isakov, Meese, Isaac Slade of The Fray, Langhorne Slim, Bowerbirds, and Dressy Bessy.

In the last 2 years the UMS has selected almost 130 Sonicbids artists to grace their stages – including the outdoor festival stage, traditional venues like the HiDive, 3 Kings or The Skylark, the historic Mayan Theater, and funky art galleries and retail shops. Their performers have enjoyed the unique atmosphere and appreciative crowds synonymous with the UMS.

This is a Denver Post Community Signature Event,. All proceeds benefit the Denver Post Community Foundation. The foundation will distribute all funds to nonprofit organizations operating locally. The mission of The Denver Post Community Foundation is to improve and enrich the quality of life in our community through the support of programs that benefit Arts, Youth, Education and Human Services.
