Denver's Motion Trap has been a staple of the Mile High music scene for years now. Having opened shows for twenty one pilots and BØRNS, their sound has peaked the interest of the stars they destine to shine with. Motion Trap was featured on 303 Music Vol. 2 — a vinyl compilation in partnership with 303 Magazine and Vinyl Me, Please — and had a music video featured in an official Denver Film Festival afterparty. Their sonic pop-rock sounds are danceable to say the least and catching on quick.
Willbeaux (Will Sheehan) is a dynamic producer and DJ inspired by the energy of the city where he lives, Denver, Colorado. The Bay Area native is a powerhouse, combining elements of house, trap, break beats and funk to create his own hypnotizing style of dance music — and you better believe Willbeaux is here to make you dance. In June 2019 Willbeaux was nominated to join Bridging the Music’s Colorado Solo Music Awards. He landed as a top-six finalist that will be invited back later in the year.

Kayla Marque has been a staple for the Denver music scene for years now. Crafting heartfelt songs, she's a genre-blending musician that weaves wonderful stories with her soulful voice. She conveys her message authentically using music as a form of self expression. Having opened shows for the likes of Khalid and performing at Red Bull Music events, it's clear the world is starting to pay attention.
Reveling in sonic-sounds while representing some of Denver’s best talent is Eldren. The band manages their self-grown Daymoon Studios and is a force not to be reckoned with having opened for acts like Portugal. The Man and winning best psych-rock band in Denver by Westword for two consecutive years in 2015 and 2016.
"If her purple hair isn’t the first thing to grab your attention, her voice surely is. Her voice is a mix of honey and soul with the musical style to match. Kaitlyn Williams is an artist who will not and must not be ignored." - Katie Boudreau for 303 Magazine

The band is made up of some local musicians who also work with past and current local acts — they’re seasoned in the scene and you can tell with the way Retrofette has perfected their synth-pop sound and quirky personas. Not to mention, they’ve already played Red Rocks.
The Lollygags began in late 2011, with Denver native Jonathan Snyder who maintains the presence of constant Lollygag, and principal songwriter. The lyrics draw from witty social observations and personal shortcomings, while put over a soundtrack of addictive melodies and anthemic choruses. Songs that are seriously good, but never take themselves too seriously.

303 MUSIC FEST
Nasty Nachos (Alex Anderson) is an experiment in technology, vintage synthesizers and mastering melody in order to create escapist dance music. The Denver-based artist is on the heels of a debut EP release after spending three years solely constructing a booming reputation for Nasty Nachos. The time paid off, too with Anderson opening for acts like Plaid, Chrome Sparks and El Ten Eleven and growing Freq Boutique — a successful monthly synthesizer event three years running.
Very little is known about Denver pop newcomer CERVAL, but if their debut single, “Unavailable” provides any insight, it’s that he didn’t come to play games. The drugged-out self-produced song, mixed by Shuta Shinoda (Hot Chip, Bath Full of Ecstasy) wobbles in a disconcerting haze of IRL fantasies before breaking into four-on-the-floor propulsion that drags you down a rabbit hole of R&B harmonies and increasing urgency and depth.
