Created by Colorado music nonprofit SpokesBUZZ Fort Collins, BandSwap is a musical and cultural alliance among like-minded cities combining the best of grassroots collaboration, cross-promotion, creative connectivity and most of all, the unrivaled experience of live music.
Introduced in Fall 2012, the inaugural BandSwap initiative included Boise, Portland, Memphis, Milwaukee and Lafayette, La. On the weekend of September 28 -- September 30, 2012, five of Fort Collins' best live bands traveled to these respective out-of-town markets for a double bill with one of the best local bands in the host city. The following weekend, October 4 - 7, the five Fort Collins bands brought home their partner bands to Colorado for a weekend-long celebration of reciprocal double-bill gigs in Fort Collins. The BandSwap concept bridges the industry gap between digital promotion via social media and the increasingly undervalued magic of live performance. Following the tremendous success of BandSwap's inaugural year, plans for 2013 BandSwap are underway. Visit http://www.spokesbuzz.org to learn more.
