5 Reasons To Attend HARD Red Rocks
At this point, we’re used to HARD creating some of the best and most well rounded festival lineups, and that is no different for HARD Red Rocks on July 31. This year’s Red Rocks event features NERO, Dillon Francis, Rudimental (LIVE) , Destructo, Julio Bashmore, and Samo Sound Boy. The lineup serves as a preview to HARD Summer, which takes place in Los Angeles on August 2nd and 3rd. We're so excited about HARD Red Rocks that we created a list of our top five reasons to go!
1) A rare opportunity to see Nero
Nero is one of the biggest names in electronic music, and they rarely tour in the United States. Fresh off their first single release since 2012, Nero is ready for a huge year with a new album on the way this fall. Their new single, “Satisfy,” has been all over the festival circuit this summer, and it’s fair to say that they’ll be premiering lots of new music at Red Rocks. Other than at HARD Summer and a show in Miami, there’s no telling when the British trio will be back in the US, so HARD Red Rocks will be one of the only opportunities to see them in the near future.
2) Red Rocks Amphitheatre is beautiful
Red Rocks has consistently been heralded as one of the best music venues in the world. The amphitheatre is set in such a way that there isn’t a bad seat in the house, and from the top, you can see the Denver skyline from miles away. Red Rocks is a venue all music lovers must visit at some point in their life.
3) Party with Destructo
Destructo, the moniker of Gary Richards, is also the founder of HARD Presents. He has quickly become a legend in the modern age of dance music, consistently throwing some of the best parties in the industry. HARD is responsible for tons of events, such as HARD Summer, Day of the Dead and Holy Ship!!! Destructo is also a very talented producer and DJ, so be sure to get there early enough to catch his set!
4) Dillon Francis throws down
Although we’re still anxiously waiting the release of his first artist album Money Sucks, Friends Rule, Dillon Francis has been throwing down huge sets this summer. Following his stint on The Mothership Tour with Skrillex, he has played Tomorrowland, Spring Awakening, and EDC Las Vegas. His album has likely been delayed due to signing with Columbia Records, but he’s still been dropping the new tracks like crazy during his sets.
5) The most diverse lineup at Red Rocks all summer
Never before have we seen such an all-star lineup at Red Rocks with as much diversity as HARD brings. The deeper sounds of Julio Bashmore and Destructo, fused with the bass-heavy music from Rudimental and Dillon Francis, finished off with a classic Red Rocks bass-headliner in NERO ensures that HARD will be one of the best one-day festivals this summer.
