Apogaea is a collaborative outdoor arts and music festival held in the beautiful mountains of Colorado. Here you will find an experiential forum where our ever-expanding community practices freedom of expression in an environment of participation, sharing, and creativity. We invite you to join us in a place where our spirits are as high as the mountains and our minds are as wide open as the plains.
Apogaea is Colorado’s
“Regional Burning Man Event”
In the spirit of the Burning Man event, Apogaea establishes a temporary autonomous zone where radical self-expression, inclusiveness, and self-reliance are the hallmarks of its participants. Apogaea is your opportunity to create and contribute, experience and evolve, share and accept, work and play.
For those who may not make it to Black Rock City this year, consider this your Burning Man family reunion. For those who haven’t yet made the journey to Burning Man, this is your opportunity to experience the fully participatory atmosphere of a No Spectators, Leave No Trace event. You can read more about these terms further down on this page.
Apogaea is an effort made by the community for the community; everyone involved purchases a ticket in order to support the event and for the privilege of attending. With this in mind, please join us as a volunteer to participate in making this an amazing event. Go to our volunteer pages to learn more and to sign up for a shift. If that isn’t convenient, please stop by the Information Booth and sign up during the event. Volunteerism is what makes this event possible, and it is also one of the most fun and rewarding ways to participate.
