Velorama Festival returned to Denver's RiNo neighborhood over the weekend. Now in its second year, the three-day music event coincides with the Colorado Classic bicycle race. The race track circled the festival grounds this year, so attendees were able to watch the race while enjoying live music.

The 2018 edition hit a slight snag on its first day when Modest Mouse had to postpone its Friday night headlining set. Luckily, the long-running indie band was able to reschedule for Saturday night, which meant huge crowds for a bill that also included The Growlers and Cold War Kids. Matt & Kim closed out Sunday night with a high-energy performance that featured two enormous beach balls.
