We’re switching up the format this week. Instead of ranking our top five shows, we’re listing them in chronological order. You decide which ones are the best.
5. Zeds Dead at Red Rocks (July 3rd)
Kicking off this week’s festivities with a bang are DC and Hooks of Zeds Dead. Coming out for their 4th straight year headlining Red Rocks, they are bringing the whole deadbeats crew with them to start one helluva party. The lineup includes Ghastly, REZZ, Camo & Krooked, Nebbra, GG Magree & Pham. If you haven’t already, check out DeadBeats Vol. 1 for a taste of what’s in store and get your tickets for both their show at Red Rocks and the pre-party at the Ogden Theater.
4. Flume at Red Rocks (July 5th) (Sold Out)
Its Flume. Enough said. The Australian phenomenon sold out the legendary 10,000 person venue in a matter of days. His sophomore album was released to thunderous praise, the perfect way to follow up with his debut self titled LP. His infinity stage design has been seen by millions and I can only wait to see what Harley and the rest of his team will come up with next. His Red Rocks performance will feature support from trap heavyweight Baauer and fellow Future Classic labelmate Touch sensitive. If you managed to get tickets for this one, get ready for a good time.
3. Bondax w/ Congo Sanchez, Aaron Bordas, Mikey Thunder & Jubee at Cervantes (July 5th)
In my opinion, Re:Search Wednesday’s is consistently one of the best weekly events in Denver. Each Wednesday you can count on a stellar headliner as well as amazing support from the local residents. This week brings out the U.K. duo Bondax, comprised of George Townsend and Adam Kaye. Get ready to get low and dance until your soles wear out. Purchase your tickets here and check out the upcoming Re:Search shows.
2. Bassnectar at 1stBank Center (July 7th, 8th, and 9th)
What can you say that hasn’t already been said about Colorado’s favorite bass slangin’ producer and DJ? Very few of his peers can claim to have the skill both in the studio and on the decks that Lorin Ashton possesses. This summer’s event takes a new spin; instead of a massive stage and ridiculous visual production, he plans to recreate the underground warehouse vibe of the 90s. That means he’ll be playing from a small booth at floor level with minimal lighting and no limits on genres or songs.
1. Claptone at Club Vinyl rooftop (July 8th)
SoCo Nightlife hosts a variety of events across a network of 6 unique Denver clubs. Coming up this week at Vinyl is Claptone. The masked DJ was recently in Colorado performing an opening set for Rufus Du Sol and is now making his triumphant return. With an improved sound system and sunny rooftop vibes, Claptone will set the mood for a full day and night of dancing.
