NEDERLAND, CO (CelebrityAccess) — The uniquely macabre Frozen Dead Guys Days festival will be returning to Colorado’s front range in 2020.
The festival, which pays tribute to the frozen corpse of Bredo Morstøl, a Swede who was cryogenically frozen and stored in a shed in the mountains near Nederland, Colorado.
Led by controlling partner Sarah Martin, who took a 60% stake in the festival this year, the three-day music and arts festival features three stages of music with an Americana, blues, and funk-heavy lineup of both regional rising stars and nationally touring artists.
The festival also features creepy coffin races, polar plunging, frozen t-shirt contests, a Blue Ball & more.
“After years of participating in many aspects of this unique Nederland festival called Frozen Dead Guy Days the opportunity presented itself to partner with Amanda. With the desire to keep this whimsical story and successful festival alive, we are working with the town of Nederland to continue this tradition that happens each year in our wonderful community,“ Martin said.
Amanda MacDonald, who previously served as the event coordinator for the festival, is planning to step back and refocus on her curatorial role at the Tuff Shed Mausoleum Museum, but will continue to develop sponsorship opportunities for the event.
