Red Rocks Season Begins This Weekend!
Here’s Every Concert in April
Flatbush Zombies and Joey Bada$$
The Beast Coast hip-hop motion will take over Red Rocks when the Brooklyn-born group Flatbush Zombies and Joey Bada$$, 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
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
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.
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
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
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 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.
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.
