Music fans are counting down the days until warm weather allows us to dance outside to our favorite music at the number one venue in the country, Red Rocks. This season is blasting off with incredible shows starting the weekend of 4/20.
No matter where you live, if you are a music fan, it should be on your bucket list to make a trip to see your favorite artist play at this natural venue. The acoustics are incredible and there really isn't a bad seat in the house.
This epic amphitheater sits between giant red rock formations named Creation Rock to the north, Ship Rock to the south, and Stage Rock.
It is most artist's dream to play Red Rocks and for some, this will be their lucky year. The calendar is filling up with once in a lifetime performances from our favorite stars.
Here is our list of electronic shows worth traveling out to the colorful state of Colorado for this April and May 2018 (in order by date).
Launch your Red Rocks season at HDYFEST this 4/20. If you are traveling from another state, 4/20 weekend is definitely a holidays to visit this ganja friendly state. Flosstradamus will be headlining this wild party with support from Kayzo, Famous Dex, Melvv and Ducky.
Coming at you 4/20 weekend, which is also the opening weekend of Red Rocks this season, Opiuo is co-headlining with Sunsquabi. Sunsquabi is a local live electronic favorite who sold out the Fillmore earlier this year and we can only expect an epic Red Rocks performance.

Louis The Child and Big Wild are teaming up for a special performance for their first headlining Red Rocks performances. Both of these artists killed it in 2017, which is why they both made our 10 Best Rising EDM Artists list. Get excited by listening to the iEDM Radio Louis The Child Mix HERE.
On May 26, Emancipator will be hosting a live band performance which he calls Emancipator Ensemble. The live performances are once in a lifetime and a must-see if you are a fan of his beautiful downtempo tunes. Opening this event will be an extra special Manic Focus Live Band, Wax Tailor with special guests and Kalya Scintilla & Eve Olution.
