The Fort Collins Musicians Association (FoCoMA) has been continually monitoring the COVID-19 situation and following the orders and recommendations of the CDC, the State of Colorado and the Larimer County Health Department. Due to mass gathering restrictions, temporary business closures and with health recommendations in mind, FoCoMA has made the decision to cancel the “in person” Fort Collins Music eXperiment music festival. The event was previously rescheduled from its traditional April dates to Sept 4 and 5, 2020 due to COVID-19. FoCoMA made this tough decision based on the health and safety of our musicians and community members.
FoCoMX has been reimagined into two safe musical options. Music fans can see live music at our in person concert series, “FoCoMX Drive & Jive” every Tuesday through the end of October. Fans can also participate in sharing their photos and memories of past festivals during FoCoMX: A Digital Retrospective held exclusively online on September 4 and 5 via FoCoMA and FoCoMX social media channels.
We also encourage music fans to attend our FoCoMX Drive & Jive series to see bands in person in a safe environment. The concerts are live, socially distanced music performances every Tuesday evening now through October at The Holiday Twin Drive In. Each concert showcases three Northern Colorado acts from diverse genres live on stage and broadcast up onto the big screen allowing audience members to safely enjoy the show from the comfort of their vehicles.

Please consider support of our Northern Colorado musicians, music venues, local businesses and neighbors during these uncertain times. If you purchased a ticket for our original April festival dates, you can choose to donate it to our 501(c)3 nonprofit FoCoMA to support our musicians community or receive a refund through the point of purchase by September 4, 2020. We appreciate your support of FoCoMX and our local music community! You can find more information at https://nightout.com/contact
