Live music and entertainment have roared back to life in Northern Colorado after many venues were forced to close for months due to the pandemic. Most venues have extensive COVID-19 safety precautions in place, including requirements for face masks and proof of vaccination or a negative test.

To get a better idea of how venues are faring and what their future might hold, we talked with two folks who work in live entertainment in Fort Collins: Dylan Williams, production manager at The Comedy Fort in Fort Collins, and Dalton Latham, general manager at the Aggie Theater in Fort Collins.

As a producer for Colorado Edition, I pitch segment ideas, pre-interview guests, craft scripts and cut audio. I also write tweets, build web posts and occasionally host.
As the host of KUNC’s new program and podcast In the NoCo, I work closely with our producers and reporters to bring context and diverse perspectives to the important issues of the day. Northern Colorado is such a diverse and growing region, brimming with history, culture, music, education, civic engagement, and amazing outdoor recreation. I love finding the stories and voices that reflect what makes NoCo such an extraordinary place to live.
