Pulse Music Festival brings LL Cool J, Z-Trip, more to Pepsi CenterBy John Wenzel | May 16th, 2012 | No Comments »
What exactly is the Pulse Music Festival?
Produced by Feyline International and Elevation Entertainment, it’s got a random (and randomly interesting) set of performers, led by everybody’s favorite rapper-turned-actor LL Cool J, and a “special performance” by DJ Z-Trip. But wait, there’s also Dash Berlin, Gabriel and Dresden, Elite Force, Matt Darey, 4 Strings, Filo & Peri, Paul Anthony, Chris Willis, Asher Roth, a breakbeat set by BT, and “a very special tribute to Beastie Boy MCA” from New York’s DJ Skribble, along with “Denver’s own b-boy legends Zulu Gremlin.”
Yeah … um, your guess is as good as ours. Apparently the all-ages event will also have numerous visual installations, including “futuristic art … a massive VJ Performance tent, fire breathers, stilt walkers, the DiLuzional Performance Troupe of over 70 performers roaming the event sharing good energy!”
It’s all about the vibes, brah. The vibes.
So it’s Burning Man in the Pepsi Center parking lot? We’ll see. Regardless, we’re intrigued. And a bit confused. Tickets for the June 29 event are on sale now through TicketHorse.
