The event began with a march in downtown Denver, which eventually reached the Greek Theatre Civic Center. In addition to the marathon lineup, the daytime event also featured special collaborations between artists. This provided a literal interpretation of the entire rally’s goal of lifting up black and indigenous voices, as Bianca Mikahn sat in with headliners Break Science in a show of solidarity between artists and representatives of marginalized communities.

The performances also featured relevant rearrangements of old standards, including the reworking of “When the Saints Go Marching In” to “Oh when the police/Shoot all my friends/Oh when the police shoot all my friends” by performers. Additionally, the iconic protest chant of “No justice, no peace! No violence from the police!” was made into R&B and soul anthems onstage by Brothers of Brass, who welcomed Eric “Benny” Bloom of Lettuce and Deshawn D’vibes Alexander to the stage for sit-ins during their set.
