While it won't look quite the same due to a vastly reduced capacity, Red Rocks Amphitheatre is leading the charge of the return of music festival season. And while the iconic venue's 80th anniversary summer season will operate at a limited capacity of 2,500—around 25% of its normal volume—the slash of its size had no effect on its typically jaw-dropping performance schedule.

From a performance by legendary rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd to a Kidz Bop World Tour concert, there are all kinds of shows slated for Red Rocks this year. It's the electronic music shows, however, that stand out above the rest. ZHU, Zeds Dead, Alison Wonderland, and many more are set to return to Red Rocks this year.

STS9 Red Rocks

With a global pandemic comes a laundry list of caveats in the name of public safety, of course. Face coverings and social distancing will be strictly enforced, and the venue has implemented a completely touchless experience with cashless concession payments and touch-free restroom fixtures, among other measures. A full breakdown of Red Rocks' COVID-19 guidelines can be found here.

Rock Reigns Supreme In Dabin's Dynamic Third Album, "Between Broken": Listen

"'Between Broken' feels like a return to the sounds that inspired me to make music in the first place."

Organizers also commissioned a colossal new roof over the amphitheatre's stage to combat fierce weather. The fabled open air venue is celebrated for its natural acoustics, which are made possible by the two giant monoliths that flank its seating area and stage. However, the new roof isn't expected to affect the stage's sound dispersion.
