The Music District is a dynamic gathering hub, workspace, and creative playground for the music community. For the novice or pro, it’s a place where anyone can develop the art, learn the business, and share skills and passions with musicians and music lovers. A living laboratory, it will continuously evolve to meet the ever-changing needs of the northern Colorado landscape and the wider music world.

Need some pre-production time and training with your band before you go into the studio? Want to learn about live sound and lighting, or find someone to set design your music video? How about connecting with others to volunteer at local festivals, or working with experienced industry pros who can help push your idea into the world via marketing, agency representation, management, and touring? You can learn it all here. You can teach it here. You can brainstorm it here. You can share it here. You can make it happen here.

At the Music District, you can utilize specific services, projects, and events, or indulge in the entire array of programming, education, training, collaboration, and more. When you’re ready, you can launch from here into the Fort Collins music ecosystem, into venues across the state, and into the national and international music scenes. And, you can always come back and pay it forward, helping us create, grow, and foster a community that loves and lives music.
