The FoCoMX Box Office will be open from 12:00 PM - 11:00 PM on both Friday and Saturday at Elevations Credit Union 221 E Mountain Ave, Fort Collins, CO 80524
Our festival is open to all ages, but some of our venues do have 21 & up age restrictions including:
The Comedy Fort
The Magic Rat
R Bar and Lounge
Tony’s Bar and Rooftop
For the first time ever, we’re going digital with our program guide. Most of the venues in the festival footprint are conveniently located within walking distance and use biodegradable cups instead of plastics. We encourage bicycles and using Transfort, our cities bus system. We'll also be re-using our 2020 wristbands this year - so get ready for the blast from the past because we’re going to party hard and make up for lost time.
FoCoMX 2022 will feature an increased number of outdoor concert spaces for people to enjoy the performances in open air settings. Outdoor stages are included at: Avogadro's Number, Equinox Brewing, The Exchange, Fort Collins Museum of Discovery - The Big Backyard, Gilded Goat Brewing Co., Illegal Pete's, The Lyric, New Belgium Brewing Co., Odell Brewing Co., OBC Wine Project, Sound Off Silent Disco at Old Town Square, Tony's Bar & Rooftop and The Wolverine Farm Publick House.
Please see the full list of outdoor stages here.
No, in an effort to be more sustainable we’ve opted to have the lineup online only this year. Additionally, with COVID we’ve had to be much more flexible in our planning. Printed programs don’t allow for such changes.
Print the whole lineup or select venues here.

Tickets for children of any age are required and are full price. We have implemented this policy as children are included in capacity counts across our venues and some of our spaces are limited. Please consider attending some of our Admission Locations: Odell Brewing Co, OBC Wine Project, The Fort Collins Museum of Discovery, and The Exchange.

There is no guarantee. There are 30+ stages of music happening in a two-day window from afternoon into the late evening, so you can fit in as many as you want! Many artists will be performing simultaneously, and venue capacities are limited, so access is on a first-come-first-served basis. However, festival organizers have strategically created lineups on multiple stages at one location for your convenience. These include Avogadro's Number, Equinox Brewing Co, New Belgium Brewing Co., The Lyric, Odell Brewing, Fort Collins Museum of Discovery, and The Comedy Fort. As soon as one stage ends, the other is kicking off, so you never miss a beat!
April can be unpredictable, so please check the weather and dress accordingly. We are a pedestrian-friendly festival so wear your walking shoes!
FoCoMA is seeking volunteers! If you are interested in connecting with us check out the volunteer listings here.
Health & Safety/Rules
Please call 9-1-1 for all emergencies
Sign up online as soon as the lineup is launched on 4/1/22! Grab your shift early for the best choice. Some shifts become yours right away, some require supervisor approval.... For approval-required shifts, we'll email you. Keep scrolling down in the Volunteer FAQ if you need more detailed sign-up steps.
Read your CONFIRMATION EMAIL carefully. There are two kinds of positions available on the website: No-approval-required, and approval-required.
If you sign up for a no-approval-required shift, IT'S YOURS and we'll be expecting to see you at one of our pre-festival trainings. Please put us in your calendar, because we really, really need you!!
If you sign up for an approval-required shift (On the schedule, it will have said: "This position requires approval by our Volunteer Coordinator. Please apply below by clicking "Sign Up!" and we will be in touch soon.") Give us up to 72 hours to catch our breath and we'll either call you with additional questions or approve you! Either way, we will let you know when we are OFFICIAL. Thank you!!
(There are also a few positions that we schedule behind the scenes, reserved for sponsors, partners and board members, but those require direct communication between you and [email protected]).
If you're 18 or over, volunteer for one or more shifts (4+ hours) and attend a training session, the benefits to YOU are: a FREE wristband for FoCoMX ($40-$60 value), and a delightfully soft and sexy volunteer t-shirt. But we truly believe the benefits go beyond that. You become part of the fabric of the Fort Collins Musicians Association community, a community dedicated to supporting our local musicians. We literally CAN NOT do this festival without you, and as we all know, local bands don't become national bands without strong grassroots support.
For volunteers with a Saturday shift who want to pick up their wristband on Friday to see music, we require a $20 deposit when you pick your wristband up at Volunteer HQ/Spaces. When you check in on Saturday, your cash deposit will be returned to you.
If the last couple of years have taught us anything, it’s that it’s important to be cautious and considerate when it comes to public health. If you are potentially contagious or are showing any COVID symptoms prior to your FoCoMX shift, please either log in and cancel your shift through the website, or email us at [email protected] as early as possible to cancel so we can try to fill your vacancy. For our COVID policies, which are subject to change, see the festival’s General FAQ page.
