July 29 - August 1, 2019 - Modern Band Summit

Save. The. Date! Because we're getting the band back together for four more days of playing, learning, teaching, and exploring all things Modern Band. 2018 was our best Modern Band Summit (the artist formerly known as Rockfest) yet, and that's because of one thing and one thing only -- the attendees. If you were there last year, we can't wait to see you back in Fort Collins. And if you have never attended, we invite you to come experience and expand this amazing and inspiring community. Modern Band Summit July 29-August 1st, 2019 Colorado State University Fort Collins, Colorado
