What is the Music District?   

Located in Fort Collins, CO, the Music District is a dynamic gathering hub, workspace, and creative playground for musicians and members of the Northern Colorado music industry to collaborate, connect, learn and level up.  

Opened in 2016, our 5 building, 1 acre campus was specifically designed with our music community in mind and features backlined rehearsal rooms, musical gear and equipment, production rooms, drop-in workspace, access to all contemporary music making software, and much more. 

What do you do? 

We help Northern Colorado-based musicians and music-based businesses grow and develop through: 

  • Programming 
  • Community building events 
  • Resource and opportunity sharing 
  • Bridging connections to collaborators and mentors locally and beyond. 

We help musicians grow through hands-on learning and experiences directly relevant to today’s music industry. We support entrepreneurs, the DIYers, and everything in between and provide spaces and resources to grow your career and skills in music.  

 In addition, we work to create connections both within our local scene as well as between our local community and the larger music and creative industries. 

The Music District is committed to providing a safe, inclusive, and inspiring environment. We embrace diversity and value different backgrounds, perspectives, and views. All genres, lifestyles, and personalities are welcome. We hope to play a part in building a more sustainable and equitable music industry for all. 

Has anything changed since you first opened? 

Yes! Over the past 5 years, our programs, offerings, and facility have evolved and lead us to a deeper focus on artist development for our core community. 

In March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic forced us to close our doors and fully transition to virtual events and programming. Like many organizations, this time gave us a chance to take a closer look at the way we work, our facility, programs, and offerings, and adjust where needed. The team is currently developing reopening plans and will update our website as details are announced.
