Zeds Dead Returns to Red Rocks on July 2
Zeds Dead have announced that they will be returning to the famous Colorado Red Rocks Amphitheater for Dead Rocks. This is the second time the Zeds Dead–branded event will be taking over the venue. On July 3, of 2014, Zeds Dead kicked off the first Dead Rocks alongside co-headliners Dada Life, with support from Joey Bada$$, Manic Focus, Grandtheft, Basscrooks, and special guest and frequent Zeds Dead collaborator, Omar Linx.
Red Rocks has become the premier host for all things electronic music in the Midwest. In just the last year, Skrillex's Mothership Tour, Bassnectar, HARDFEST 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 Amphitheatre.
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. Regardless, Dead Rocks will be returning this summer. Whether Zeds Dead and company will be invited back to the venue remains to be seen.
In other Zeds Dead news, they will be releasing their collaboration with young future house star Oliver Heldens on Monday (Feb. 2) via Spinnin' Records. Listen to "You Know" below.
