BandSwap is an event that will highlight and promote Fort Collins through collaborative efforts with venues and bands in six host cities.
During the last weekend of September, six Fort Collins bands will travel to different host cities. The bands will play with already known bands from those cities, playing full opening sets for the host cities bands. The following weekend, the SpokesBUZZ bands will return to Fort Collins, accompanied by the partnering bands from the host cities, for a full weekend extravaganza of music.The shows will be scheduled at different nights throughout the weekend so fans can enjoy all the music. Tickets will be sold independently for each show, but an event-wide pass will also be available at a discounted price.
