So, um, Echo is hosting a concert? TBH TNH is confusing. ;) 

 

This will be the first concert hosted by Echo mountain resort! It's sure to be a fun time and since Echo is the closest resort to Denver, what excuse do you have not to go!? 

Although this event is rather secretive, here are some details for you to know about. 

All attendees must arrive via shuttle bus.

Shuttles are available from Denver to Echo Mountain through two companies:

Bus To Show: https://bustoshow.org/2019071308-lane-8-summer-gathering

CID: https://rrxshuttles.com/event/lane8-2019-07-13

Parking passes are sold out.
