HARD Red Rocks Returns with Dog Blood, The Glitch Mob, Porter Robinson and More
After coming to Red Rocks in 2014 with NERO, Dillon Francis, Destructo, Rudimental, Julio Bashmore and Samo Sound Boy, HARD treated the famous Red Rocks amphitheater to one of the summer's hottest events. Now, they're returning to the outdoor venue to take things to the next level.
This year, they've recruited Dog Blood (the collaborative side-project of Skrillex and Boys Noize, who are set to make their much-anticipated return this summer at Movement Festival in Detroit), Porter Robinson (who will be bringing his mesmerizing live show), The Glitch Mob, Destructo, Branchez and Option4. This intense lineup makes for what guarantees to once again land HARD Red Rocks as one of the hottest events of the summer season. Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 20 at 9AM PST / 10AM MST at the official Hardfest website.
Red Rocks has become the premier host for all things electronic music in the Midwest. It was recently announced that GRiZ and Zeds Dead will be headlining the venue this summer. In just the last year, Skrillex’s Mothership Tour, Bassnectar and Big Gigantic‘s Rowdytown are just a few of the electronic music-based events that have taken the stage at the geologically formed, open-air amphitheater.
Due to complaints from residential neighbors of the Morrison, Colorado venue, however, new noise policies (including bass levels) have been implemented at the venue. The Denver Post reports that bass levels and late performance times were at the heart of these complaints. This, of course, is bad news for bass music artists. Now in 2015, the venue has also ruled that any artists who break these newly placed sound restrictions will be banned from performing at the venue.
