With the 6th edition of Communikey Festival in Boulder Colorado only 3 weeks out, we are very excited to announce our Friday night Afterhours event, as well as the line-up for our annual Boutiques series, which features local artists at our Festival Headquarters.
On Friday, April 26th The Great American Techno Festival and Communikey bring you DJ Stingray – of Urban Tribe and Drexciya fame – to man the decks for a special Communikey Festival Friday night Afterhours at The Would Shop 2.0. With his recent album, F.T.N.W.O., and a string of European gigs, DJ Stingray has been making waves across the dance music underground. John Templeton, Benjamin Shreves, Alala.One and The Missing Link will provide support for this event.
A bus service will be available to shuttle festival attendees to The Would Shop 2.0, leaving from Shine in Boulder around 1AM following the Safety Scissors showcase. The bus will also return to Shine at 5AM. Admission for this show will be $10 with a CMKY Festival Pass and $20 general admission.
