To really let us know you have what is takes to wear the crown, you can upload a personal video via youtube, telling us why!

Step 3: Get your tickets to the show and compile a court! Make sure to get your tickets to one of the best local line ups of the summer, and get your friends and family to be a part of your court! Once you are a King or Queen you can Knight nobles, your fellow summer country men and woman!

Step 4: Finals! We will choose a group of guy and girl finalists to compete in various physical challenges the night of the show.  This is where training  and having a supportive court will come in handy.  We won’t reveal all of the challenges, but it could be anything from a three legged dance competition, to hula hoop contest, to jumping rope, to grilling the best burger! One thing for sure is that ascension to the thrown will not be easy, and the night of the show it could be anybody’s game!

Step 5: If you are crowned the King or Queen of Summer you will be crowned on stage at the Gothic Theather in front of hundreds of fans and then it will be time to rock out with Bop Skizzum, and four of Colorado’s best bands!
