This year marks 10 years since the FoCoMX music festival first took over downtown Fort Collins. It returns to Northern Colorado April 27 and 28.

The 2018 event will feature more than 300 Colorado acts performing on nearly 40 stages across Fort Collins. We've highlighted some of those artists in our latest Colorado Music Sampler -- our quarterly offering of free downloads from some of the state's most exciting new releases.

Like FoCoMX itself, our sampler features a wide variety of music from artists based in Fort Collins and Denver. There's psychedelic rock from Serpentfoot, hip-hop from Kind Dub, Americana-pop from Blake Brown & The American Dust Choir and more.

You can download the songs through April 29 or stream them right here. (Update: Downloads are no longer available.) Also, check out where and when to catch each act at FoCoMX this month.
