Mile High Music Festival..Backstage With Dave Matthews

Mile High Privileges

It just hit me, the Mile High Music Festival is almost here and I forgot the biggest thing to take care of....call for my passes! With work so busy and getting ready for a big trip my mind has been elsewhere. After some calls from my girlfriend the topic went "did you get the backstage passes yet?" My frantic last minute call to a close friend of the band came through for us and soon I had 4 passes to the best show in town!

Dave puts on one of his last shows for awhile here in the Mile High City

It does help to know family members of the band and get a special treat to one of the Hottest tour bands of the decade! I've been watching Dave for what seems like 20 years now starting in Athens at the Superjam...man I'm old and no matter how many times I get to see him and friends at the shows, I always walk away with "Boy was that an amazing show he put on again!"


It's hard to beat an afternoon in the Rockies and even better when it's 82' all day with a
constant breeze and jacket weather when the sun sets here a Mile above sea level. Great shows all day long from Jimmy Cliff, Railroad Earth, Weezer, Phoenix and many more that day!

VIP after party, this is where it's at and better yet free drinks and Food!

Our own little spacious area next to friends, family members, cameras and soundcrew, or being surrounded by thousands in a mosh pit hmmm a no brainer there!


We're going to miss the band and seeing them on tour again. Hopefully they take a few years off and get the itch to tour again. Thanks for the memories and keeping the Mile High Music Festival a favorite by all each Summer.

Looks like a Rocking show. I've never been able to see him play but enjoy his music a bunch.
