FoCoMX -- the Fort Collins Music Experiment -- is a two-day music showcase featuring more than 200 acts performing at nearly 30 venues in Fort Collins. Now in its ninth year, the event shows off some of the finest musical talent of northern Colorado, and plenty of bands from the rest of the state.

This year's festival happens April 28-29. If you're planning to take part in the Music Experiment, we've got songs from seven FoCoMX 2017 acts for our latest Colorado Music Sampler.

Download and stream songs below from acts like indie rock band Slow Caves, electronica duo Get Along and alt-country group Gasoline Lollipops. You can also see when and where they're scheduled to play at FoCoMX. Downloads are available until May 4.
