Denver is one of our hottest offices right now! It’s headed for some serious growth and a lot of that has to do with how great of a city Denver is to live in. One of the best parts are all the activities there are. Many people think of the close proximity to skiing, hiking and water sports when they think of the Mile High City. But summertime in Denver also plays hosts to many outdoor concerts, so we decided to breakdown a list of some of our favorite concert spots for you in the area if you find yourself in Denver this summer!
Red Rocks Park & Amphitheater
Located just 15 miles from downtown Denver, Red Rocks is perhaps one of the most spectacular concert venues in Denver, and certainly the most famous! Formed over 70 million years, the amphitheater which can hold just over 9,000 fans is surrounded by red sandstone rock, some of which are more than 300 feet tall. Upcoming shows we’re excited about include O.A.R. (Aug. 8), Gary Clark Jr. (Sept. 4), and Vampire Weekend (Oct. 8-9).
Denver Botanical Gardens
In the middle of the city, you can find one of the most incredible gardens with plenty of rare species of flowers and plants to draw a crowd itself. However, in the summer months, they open it up for concert-goers to come to visit the space for various musical acts. So grab your picnic gear, a bottle of wine and head over! Local tip, purchase tickets ahead of time because they almost always sell out. Must-see acts this summer? Judy Collins with Joan Osborne (Aug. 12) and Bruce Hornsby & the Noisemakers (Aug. 18) are on our shortlist!
While it’s still baseball season, when the Colorado Rockies are on the road, their stadium opens up into an incredible outdoor concert venue pulling in top acts! This year Billy Joel and Zac Brown Band are playing back to back nights (Aug. 8 and 9) these are definitely the hottest tickets in town right now!
Fiddler’s Green Amphitheater
At Fiddler’s Green, you can either purchase a reserved seat or bring a blanket for the lawn so whatever your preferred concert experience is, you’ve got options here! Just south of Denver, this venue is in Greenwood Village. Our favorites include Jason Aldean (July 26), Mumford & Sons (Aug. 15-17), B-52s (Aug 18) and of course everyone’s favorite Dave Matthews Band (Aug. 23 & 24).
