If you’ve been looking for a reason to go up to Fort Collins — and really, who hasn’t? — here it is. The lineup for the town’s free Bohemian Nights festival has just been announced, and you’d be hard-pressed to find a more diverse array of headliners.

The three-day outdoor extravaganza kicks off Aug. 20 with Denver’s own Flobots, whose first post-“Handlebars” album, Survival Story entered the Billboard album charts at #44 back in March.

Then on Saturday, Aug. 21, Earth, Wind & Fire will deliver with serve up glossy r&b hits of the “Shining Star” and “Let’s Groove” variety.

Sunday night closes with Earl Scruggs, the bluegrass banjo god whose Foggy Mountain Boys inspired O Brother, Where Art Thou's Soggy Bottom Boys.

Factor in more than 50 Colorado bands playing on five stages, and you’d be crazy not to go. Info and updates at

And just to get you in the mood, here’s EWF themselves. Really, you gotta wonder: Why don’t MORE bands make videos like this?
