COLORADO SPRINGS — Live music will now be played at the Colorado Springs Airport as a way for great travelers to fly into the airport.

Local musicians will be able to perform at the Colorado Springs Airport thanks to their flyTunes program.

"flyTunes is our way of celebrating the musical landscape of Colorado Springs and welcoming travelers with the authentic sounds of our community," said Greg Phillips, Director of Aviation. "We believe that live music adds a special touch to the airport experience, and we are excited to provide a stage for talented local artists."

According to the airport, each artist who applies will undergo a review process by airport staff, making sure performances align with the program's goals and standards.
