Another year, another season of live music at one of the most beautiful venues in the world, Red Rocks Amphitheatre. We’re grateful to have the landmark location for music in our backyard, and we’ll never stop getting excited to see which performances are announced throughout the year.
Red Rocks already has a full schedule for its opening months, and today we’ve created a list of the top shows to sort through. The list features some very important debuts, well-curated lineups, and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Dig into the best Red Rocks concerts for spring 2023 below. Enjoy!
Dates: April 7
Tchami has always been at the forefront of future house innovation. On April 7, he brings along two emerging names in the scene that are also pushing the genre with wonky four-to-the-floor bangers, Disco Lines and Noizu.
9. Goth Babe
Date: April 25
After blowing up over the past couple of years, Goth Babe has earned himself a headlining booking at Red Rocks. He’s bringing Cautious Clay and Yoke Lore with him, cementing a lineup that is chock-full of talent. Upbeat indie music is the name of the game here, a nice shake-up for the venue’s calendar.
8. Cyclops Rocks III
If you’re looking for an evening full of in-your-face dubstep and drum & bass, look no further. Subtronics always brings the heat, and for Cyclops Rocks III, he’s enlisted some legendary talent in Pendulum and Netsky. Don’t sleep on IMANU, either.
7. The Marley Brothers
Not one, not two, not three, not four, but five Marley Brothers are coming to perform at Red Rocks in mid-April, just in time for the state’s famous 420 celebrations. This is sure to be a smokey scene, with Sean Paul accompanying the brothers on April 19 and Steel Pulse on April 20.
6. Boogie T on the Rocks II
Date: April 8 (tickets on sale January 13)
This lineup for Boogie T’s second headlining show at Red Rocks is beautifully curated. Dubstep veteran The Widdler, a sunset slot for the Boogie T.RIO (Boogie T’s non-electronic band), Manic Focus, and more provide an eclectic sonic journey for those in attendance. This evening will feature riddim, deep dub, funky grooves, and more.
5. Bob Moses & Ben Bohmer
Date: April 15
Ben Böhmer has been blowing minds with his immaculate live sets, and this is your chance to witness one yourself in the best location you could ask for. He’ll be making his Red Rocks debut alongside familiar favorites Bob Moses. The supporting acts, Layla Benitez and CRi, are also top-notch, solidifying a night full of melodic house and techno.
4. Billy Strings
We don’t often cover bluegrass on TSIS, but the sheer talent that Billy Strings wields is reason enough for any music fan to check out his shows. He’s coming to Red Rocks for two nights in mid-May. Get there early, as his super fans will be lining up at the gates.
3. John Summit
Date: May 14
After everything we’ve seen from John Summit so far, there’s no reason to think that his headlining Red Rocks debut will be anything but unhinged. Tickets to see the emerging house and techno star sold out in a matter of minutes, so we wish you the best of luck in searching for an affordable pair.
2. Dom Dolla
After an iconic performance in a blizzard at Red Rocks last year, Dom Dolla is set to return for two nights in 2023. He’s one of tech house’s finest stars at the moment, and he’s bringing along another top house DJ, Patrick Topping, for his Red Rocks debut. Further supporting house selectors on the lineup will make this a triumphant night for the genre in Colorado.
1. Mersiv Rocks
Date: April 6
Red Rocks has been sorely lacking a night like this for some time now. With the deserved rise of Mersiv in the bass scene, he’s now earned his headlining slot at Colorado’s premiere venue. It’s not just his performance that makes this our top pick for the spring, though. Adding more depth to the lineup is electro-soul hero Daily Bread and space bass extraordinaire Tripp St. This night has the potential to be the most raucous party at Red Rocks in 2023, and you won’t want to miss it.
