At Reggae on the Rocks, legendary reggae artists and talented up-and-comers perform against the Red Rocks Amphitheatre’s breathtaking backdrop of mountains, prairies, and sandstone monoliths. Instead of playing bass lines over the songs of squawking birds, music lovers can kick back as Grammy-winning headliner Mykal Rose delivers his trademark tu-tu-tweng vocals to their ears. San Diego’s Mystic Roots Band blends smooth harmonies with lively beat boxing, and local superstar Judge Roughneck fuses reggae and ska. Grouponites can bask in fresh air and the musky scent of freedom as they shimmy to Inner Circle’s “Bad Boys,” the theme to Fox’s long-running Cops series. The docket also includes DubSkin, Groundation, Collie Buddz, and Marty Dread, who will regale listeners with dramatic recitations of Beowulf.
Originally known as the Garden of Angels, Red Rocks enchants visitors with ethereal scenery and top-notch acoustics 6,450 feet above sea level. The amphitheater geologically emerged from the ocean floor over millions of years, its walls housing fossil fragments of various dinosaurs, including plesiosaurs, mosasaurs, and several plush Barney dolls.

Originally known as the Garden of Angels, Red Rocks enchants visitors with ethereal scenery and top-notch acoustics 6,450 feet above sea level. The amphitheater geologically emerged from the ocean floor over millions of years, its walls housing fossil fragments of various dinosaurs, including plesiosaurs and mosasaurs. The carbon-dated rock 'n' roll history of Red Rocks includes performances by The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, and The Grateful Dead. The sonic stone architecture of the venue has also led to dozens of popular live recordings, including U2’s Live at Red Rocks: Under a Blood Red Sky, John Tesh’s Live at Red Rocks, and Neil Young’s Road Rock Vol. 1.
