2018 Red Rocks Charity Drives

Our 2018 Red Rocks Charity Drive Campaign has concluded, but we’ll be back at it in 2019! Another big thanks to our sponsor, Ent Credit Union, to all of the artists that participated and their teams, and of course, to all the fans that donated. We’ll see everyone again in 2019. If you aren’t familiar with these drives or you need a refresher, below is a break down of why we’re doing this, what it entails, and how you become involved.


We are organizing this for a few different reasons. First and foremost, we want to use the power of music, specifically electronic music, to do good. The scene and fanbase here is unlike any other in the world, and there is no reason that we shouldn’t be harnessing that energy to give back to our community and those in need. The dance music world is rooted in peace, love, unity, and respect, so we think it’s time to take that mentality to the next level and really make a difference.

Secondly, the fans deserve it. Colorado fans (and EDM fans in general) are passionate, tireless, committed, informed, open minded, and generous. They spend countless dollars on concert tickets to see and support their favorite DJs, producers, and bands over the years, and they deserve to be rewarded for that. We want to do our part in thanking them, as do all of the artists, promoters, and venues that work with us on these projects.

What’s the gist?

Every campaign/show is unique, but here’s how it works in a nutshell; we work with various artists performing at Red Rocks over the course of the concert season to offer enticing & unique prizes and opportunities to fans in exchange for helping make a difference in our community. The artists we work with are both headliners and supporting acts, and we will partner with as many as possible. Prizes vary from free Red Rocks tickets to meet & greets to backstage tours to merch packs.

So, how do you go about winning these prizes? Pretty simple. For each event, we will have a booth set up on-site at Red Rocks. Unless otherwise noted, that booth will be set up at the Upper South Lot, right next to the base of the ramp that leads to the venue. Below you can find a map with that area highlighted.


At the booth we will be accepting a variety of donations. In 2018, the majority of donations raised were for Metro Caring, the area’s “leading hunger relief organization directly serving families and individuals”. While we are proud to have worked with them and of all the donations we accepted for them, one of our goals for 2019 is to involve as many organizations as possible. So, you can expect to see us featuring a different nonprofit at just about every event this year.

For each item you donate, you will receive one raffle ticket. At the time of your donation, we will take down your contact info which we will use to notify you if you win. Once all donations have been received, we will randomly select the winning raffle tickets and notify the winners.

In certain cases, we may also run an online giveaway to help spread the word about this campaign, where we will most likely give away concert tickets and/or meet and greets.
