Velorama returns to Five Points for its second year of bicycle racing and music this summer, bringing Glass Animals, Cold War Kids and Vince Staples in to top the bill.

Early bird, $90 three-day passes for the Aug. 17-19 event held in conjunction with the Colorado Classic go on sale at 10 a.m. tomorrow.

Other main acts include Matt and Kim, Rainbow Kitten Surprise and The Kills. The rest of the lineup will be announced soon, according to a press release. And just like last year, attendees will also be able to see very fit athletes going very fast on very expensive bicycles.

This year, Velorama moves off the streets and into the Rockies parking lot between Blake an the rail tracks. Last year, one of the biggest complaints about that festival was that it was too spread out.

Here’s a map of the 2018 layout:

As you can (kind of) see, they’ll once again have food trucks on site, craft beer, wine and hard cider and bike expo areas. The main entrance is at 27th and Blake streets.

One-day ticket prices have not yet been announced.
