Red Rocks Season Begins This Weekend! Here’s Every Concert in April

Red Rocks Season Begins This Weekend!

Here’s Every Concert in April

 
Red Rocks Amphitheatre is back in action.

 
Coming off of an early April blizzard, it is hard to imagine that Red Rocks season is finally upon us. But it is. And it starts this weekend with a series from Flatbush Zombies and Joey Bada$$. The remainder of the week is hip-hop-heavy and 420-friendly (well, not legally). And rock fans lovers, the EDM set and even Christians all have to look forward to this month. Here’s a list of every Red Rocks concert occurring in April.


Flatbush Zombies and Joey Bada$$
April 13

The Beast Coast hip-hop motion will take over Red Rocks when the Brooklyn-born group Flatbush Zombies and Joey Bada$$, one of the founders of Pro Era, co-headline the place with the Underachievers, Kirk Knight and Nyck Caution. Expect an evening of heavy East Coast hip-hop, with no shortage of political takes and waxing about psychedelics.


Snoop Dogg and Ice Cube
April 18

Nothing screams 420 like Snoop Dogg’s annual concert in Denver. This year, the heavy-puffing rapper’s playing a few days early and sharing the stage with co-headliner Ice Cube, who shocked the world with straight talk about gang life and police brutality in N.W.A., paving the way for decades of gangsta rap. In the center of it all, he began behaving, launching his career with Boyz N the Hood. Expect a skunky night of hip-hop (and, no, we are not referring to the actual skunks that some fans reported seeing at the place in droves last year).


420 Eve on the Rocks With 311 and Method Man & Redman
April 19

The rockers in 311 and Wu-Tang Collective members Method Man & Redman will be headlining one of the smokiest lineups of the year, when 420 Eve on the Rocks lights up the Rocks, with assistance from the Green, Dizzy Wright and Jesse Royal.


Stick Figure
April 20

Everyone celebrates differently, but for music-loving potheads, 420 on the Rocks has become an annual tradition. This year, the reggae act Stick Figure will headline the concert. Nick Swardson will host, and Pepper, Steel Pulse, the Movement and Iya Terra will open.

Easter Sunrise Service
April 21

Our yearly cannabis vacation week gives people plenty to repent for and possibly even a few ecstatic religious experiences that bring them back to God. So it makes this year’s Easter Sunrise Service, the day after 4/20timed. Show up at the rocks starting at 4:30 a.m. Pre-worship music starts at 5:30 and the service itself begins at 6 and ends around 7:30 a.m. The event, hosted by the Colorado Council of Churches, is a Denver convention that began 72 decades back. Reverend Quirino Cornejo provides the sermon, and Heatherlyn Music, Dr. J. Arturo Gonzalez and the Jubilate! Sacred Singers will offer their music up.

Pardon My French Featuring DJ Snake, Tchami X Malaa, and Mercer
April 26

Forget the club. Denver’s premiere location for music is Red Rocks. Enjoy DJ Snake’s thick EDM sound, a set with Tchami and Malla, and music from Mercer.


Lotus
April 27

Lotus plays head-bopping music at the intersection of instrumental jamming and electronica — one of Colorado’s favorite genres. Expect a flashy light show and the sort of hallucinations — the stuff made for winding through dreams that are elevated or music designed to trip to. The electro-funk behave Ghostland Observatory will open.


1975 
April 30

The indie-rock ring the 1975 will take over the amphitheater as part of its North American tour, a celebration of the group’s album, A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships. Pale Wave and No Rome will open.

The Chainsmokers Are Trying To Revive The Mannequin Challenge Single-Handedly

While on tour in South Africa for Ultra this past weekend, The Chainsmokers and their team took a bit of a detour south toward the Cape Peninsula to play with penguins at The Boulders. As it turns out, the penguins are super friendly — and in this case, nearly motionless.

During their time with the penguins, Chainsmokers & company decided to take advantage of the stillness of the birds and bring back the Mannequin Challenge, which peacefully died at home in its sleep in 2016. Apart from one or two birds, it’s actually incredible just how still these penguins were.

We certainly don’t expect the challenge to make a full recovery, but The Chainsmokers make a fair argument for — maybe — a once a year revival.

Check out their new challenge below.

Look, we know the mannequin challenge is far over but the penguins wanted to do it so 🤷🏻‍♂️

Alison Wonderland Announces First-Ever Headlining Show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre

Shortly after concluding the Lost My Mind tour alongside Dillon Francis, Alison Wonderland has announced perhaps her biggest milestone yet. The Australian DJ/producer will headline Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado for an event called Temple of Wonderland next fall. 

Joining her on the lineup are bass music mainstays Ekali, Medasin and Wuki. The announcement follows Red Rocks being named Best Outdoor Concert Venue in the 30th Annual Pollstar Awards.

“I can’t believe this is happening,” wrote Alison Wonderland (real name Alexandra Sholler) in an Instagram post. “Announcing my first ever headlining show at Red Rocks. Temple of Wonderland. This is a dream come true for me.”

Sholler released her debut album, Run, in 2015 and followed it up with last year’s Awake. In the same amount of time, she’s amassed a diehard international following that has made her a staple of the EDM festival circuit.

Alison Wonderland’s Temple of Wonderland concert will take place at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Thursday, September 12th. Presale tickets are available at RedRocks.co here.

Zedd Announces Headlining Debut at Red Rocks Amphitheatre

Zedd on the Rocks is coming this summer.

Zedd has announced he’ll be taking his talents to Morrison, Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre this summer for a special performance. Zedd on the Rocks marks the “365” producer’s debut headlining set at the iconic open air venue. 

Zedd (real name Anton Zaslavski) will be heading to Red Rocks with Hippie Sabotage, Snakehips, and Dwilly along for support. The eclectic lineup reads something more like a small festival than a regular tour stop. Similar to his 2018 Zedd in the Park event, Zaslavski is sparing no expense. He’s promising all-new show production, too. 

“It has been a dream of mine to play my own Red Rocks show ever since I saw Incubus’ Alive DVD at this magical venue many, many years ago,” said Zaslavski. “I’m beyond excited to finally announce this show and bring my new production to Red Rocks!”

Fan presale for Zedd on the Rocks begins Wednesday, February 27th at 10:00 AM MST. General tickets will be on sale this Friday, March 1st at 10 AM MST. Grab tickets at ZeddOnTheRocks.com

The Chainsmokers Reveal “World War Joy Tour,” coming to Pepsi Center

Award-winning electropop duo The Chainsmokers are coming to Denver’s Pepsi Center November 19, according to an announcement made Tuesday. The stop is part of the band’s “World War Joy Tour”, which will include Australian pop rock band 5 Seconds of Summer and country-turned-pop singer Lennon Stella.

The Chainsmokers, composed of Alex Pall and Drew Taggart, found fame with the release of their single “#SELFIE” in 2014. Their mark on the pop scene continued to spread with the release of songs such as “Roses,” “Don’t Let me Down,” and “Paris.” They’ve flexed their production skills by pairing with artists like Coldplay, Halsey, and recently paired with 5 Seconds of Summer for the song “Who Do You Love.”

You may not need to be a fan of electronic dance music to appreciate The Chainsmoker’s upcoming date with Denver. Although their music is a product of the times — the sarcastic awareness in the song “#SELFIE.” is no coincidence — the duo has a knack for seeing trends, then transcending them.

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here.

Illenium Goes On Sudden Response Spree On Twitter, Fans Flood Him With Questions

Normally if an artist, celebrity, or athlete wants to answer fan questions on the internet, they’ll do a form of AMA: ask me anything. Platforms that support this vary from Reddit, where there’s an actual community for it; Instagram, where there’s a question button built in; or Twitter, where it’s admittedly a bit more messy. Then again, fans can just notice a public figure is answering lots of questions and start flooding the person with more! The latter seems to be the case with Illenium this past weekend.

Fans began pouring their questions to Illenium, who answered quite a good amount, a couple dozen at least. Sometimes, he wasn’t even answering questions at all, just responding to random fans who hadn’t even tagged him!

Some highlights if you don’t want to scroll through all the tweets below:

Two nights of Red Rocks 2019 There will be an album this year, but he doesn’t know when The title of the new track he just dropped is “PRAY” Festival sets this year won’t be Awake 2.0, but they won’t be DJ sets, either. Somewhere in between He’d love to collaborate with Bassnectar, Skrillex, or Porter He wouldn’t remix “Divinity” by Porter Robinson because “it’s already perfect”

Rezz Teases Rezz Rocks 2

Last October, Rezz headlined her first show at Red Rocks in Colorado Together with Assistance from TOKiMONSTA, Bleep Bloop, CharlesTheFirst, Digital Ethos and Fytch.  (Shadient was initially reserved, however couldn’t execute.) The month after, she announced it was going to become an annual event. Sure s coming back this year…

REZZ ROCKS 2
September 22 2019
Red Rocks Amphitheatre

Buy Tickets now at RezzRedRocks.com

Surprisingly, neither on the Twitter thread in Cult of Rezz (that I can find) have enthusiasts been imagining support functions yet. Let Me put in my 2 cents:

1788-L is a very clear frontrunner. After encouraging Rezz on her Certain Kind Of Magic tour, and generating enough hype on his own, adding him to a Red Rocks lineup is a no brainer. Blanke is also another probable candidate, having battled with Rezz earlier and flying the US for the very first time. Deathpact would be an intriguing choice — as the producer hasn ’t even played any sets. A Rezz Rocks debut would result in an undeniable impact. Wild cards: Champagne Drip? Liquid Stranger? TOKiMONSTA has been a sudden aid for Rezz in October, so we all ’re never ruling out anybody this time around.

More Details are coming soon — stay tuned!

After 11 Years, Beta Nightclub To Close In 2019

One of Denver’s lit up and volatile nightclubs is set to get its fire extinguished. After 11 years, Beta Nightclub will be shutting its doors on January 5, 2019. For years, the digital dance music (EDM) venue drew massive celebrities, from Deadmau5 into Armin Van Buren, to the tune of lasers, smoke cannons and deafening bass. At one point dubbed one of the top 25 best clubs of all time by Billboard Magazine, in addition to taking the number one spot for dancing clubs in America by Rolling Stone at 2013, the loss of the place doesn’t just alter the dance community, but Denver as a whole.  Beta Nightclub was the destination to listen to cutting-edge digital music by the hottest up and comers in addition to the special opportunities to catch the pros in relatively close quarters. Citing the need to take time and recalibrate, Beta has decided to bid farewell.

While not cited in their official parting announcement, one cannot deny that Temple Nightclub, brand new to town, embodied their eyesight “club culture evolving” far better than Beta had in the past couple of years. Coupled with the abundance of similarily EDM-focused clubs lining South Broadway — in one place — that the decline of Beta was only a matter of time. The closing perhaps even caught many at Beta off-guard, as they had several shows lined up into 2019, such as Arty, Luca Lush plus also a rare live performance for its elusive Danger. Likewise, while January 5 has been deemed the official closing date, the last events have not yet been announced.

While there’s no word on what will finally fill Beta’s space, whatever it is, has got a great deal to live up to.
