Love Hope Strength (LHS) is now firmly established as the world’s leading rock and roll cancer foundation. The organization was created in 2007 by Mike Peters and James Chippendale. Mike is a 3-time cancer survivor and an internationally acclaimed singer for the Welsh rock band The Alarm. James, a fellow cancer survivor, is a respected insurance executive specializing in the music industry. Together they had the vision that LHS could literally, “Save lives, one concert at a time!” Love Hope Strength Foundation has registered well over a hundred thousand music fans to the National Marrow Donor Program helping to save lives of those suffering from blood borne illness. Come out to Leftapalooza and #getonthelist!

Team Left Hand is a group of employees and friends dedicated to solving the riddle that is Multiple Sclerosis and wants to continue helping the National MS Society fund research, advocate for change, and help people with MS and their families live their best lives. We hope you’ll consider joining us at Leftapalooza to raise funds & awareness for the millions of people around the world that are fighting this disease today.

In addition to setting their fundraising goals high, Team Left Hand & Left Hand Brewing Company have added Wheels Gose 'Round to the year round lineup.  Brewed to bring awareness to Team Left Hand and to benefit the National MS Society, Wheels Gose 'Round is a raspberry and lemon peel gose which is crisp and crushable while packing a fundraising punch. $1 from every Wheels Gose 'Round poured at Leftapalooza will be donated to Team Left Hand!

The Left hand Brewing Foundation is committed to brewing a stronger community where we work, live and play. The LHBF supports primary needs, community support groups, arts and cultural activities, housing projects, medical research and responds to issues and emergencies in the Longmont community and beyond. LHBF is proud to once again produce Leftapalooza and work with such amazing non-profit partners to raise awareness and funds that will help support and grow the Longmont community for years to come!

2019 Lineup


Headliner: Hey Lady!

Hey, Lady! was founded with the mission to spread the love, the fun and the wacky party spirit of the B-52s across Colorado and beyond! This is not your average background-music cover band. Hey, Lady! is an EVENT BAND; captivating and entertaining audiences of all ages with their passion and energy. Their concert-style shows provide special effects, outrageous wigs and costumes, spunk and contagious B-52’s dance grooves that have been raising audience eyebrows and heart-rates since 2009. 

Headliner: Under A Blood Red Sky

Drawing from a musical catalog of more than 35 years, Under A Blood Red Sky – The U2 Tribute, is an acclaimed tribute band that faithfully recreates the sights and sounds of an authentic U2 performance. Our musical journey takes you through the powerful and inspirational sounds of both classic and modern U2 music. You'll hear us play songs old and new, along with hidden gems U2 themselves stopped playing live years ago. When you come see us live, you'll definitely hear and feel the energy, emotion, and personal connection you expect from our band's tribute to U2. From the authentic costumes and instruments to the interactive with fans, you'll swear you're seeing the real thing perform in front of you.
