Denver band Lola Rising will be performing LIVE on the main stage at Burgundy Boulevard from 7:00-8:30 PM. Lola Rising is an Island Folk Rock band also known as "Jahawaiian" that is ukulele driven with high energy melodic dance rhythms and soaring guitars. Combing Lola Rising's dance rhythms with their vocal harmonies, makes for a perfect storm to bring everyone together for an amazing singalong dance party. The six piece has quickly risen in the burgeoning Colorado music scene with strings of dates alongside Rusted Root, Trevor Hall, and appearances at fesivals like Big Ticket Festival, Velorama, and Spread The Word Music Festival.
Inspired from a song frontman, Paul Medina Guevera, once wrote about the passing of his `Lola` (means Grandmother in Filipino), coupled with `Rising` evokes images of spirituality and embraces the human condition. Their dance-able rhythms, honest poetry, and smooth melodic multi-part harmonies makes their music familiar, fun, accessible, vivid, and thought-provoking.

Join the tradition
The flag is synonymous with the sport of soccer. It is seen as a symbol of support, used to rally the faithful. We're placing flags in the hands of our fans to help raise the pre-kick atmosphere at DICK'S Sporting Goods Park. Stadium gates open at 5:30 PM. We recommend fans get to their seats 15 minutes prior to kick to welcome the Burgundy Boys on to the pitch with Centennial 38 and our Season Ticket Members in celebrating this fan-led tradition! If you see an unused flag at the bottom of your section, and you hear “Mountain Roads” begin and see the lyrics on the scoreboard, that is your cue to begin waving your flag until kickoff! After you're done waving the flag, please place it at the bottom of the section as you found it.
DJ Jen Jones
Get in your seats early to dance along to tunes from DJ Jen Jones, who will be spinning hits throughout DSGP before kickoff, at halftime and during a special pre-firework show from her booth on the north terrace!
Skip the traffic and head to the main stage at Burgundy Boulevard for a free post firework concert and dance party with a set from DJ Jen Jones.
"Nothing compares to the 4thFest! The vibe in the stadium that night is absolutely magical," Jones said.
Since joining the Rapids as the resident DJ, Jen Jones has brought contagious energy and electrifying mixes that amplify the overall gameday atmosphere.
*Gates open at 5:30 PM. Please arrive early to allow ample time to pass through security and make it to your seat prior to kickoff!
