This new year is significant for the local arts and entertainment community, not only because it ushers in a new decade of creativity, but because 2020 is shaping up to start a new era of live music in Cheyenne.

The local music scene has been steadily gaining traction over the past several years, from the development of Fridays in the Asher in 2012 to the creation of Edge Fest in 2015. But with the addition of The Lincoln this spring and several big-name musical artists coming to several other venues, Cheyenne could soon become a go-to location for concertgoers in southern Wyoming and northern Colorado.
