Get your groove on at Red RocksColorado, USA

It’s one of the most stunning music venues you’ll ever see, and fans from all around the world come here to take in the surrounding landscape and catch some of their favourite acts in every genre.

During the day, Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre, located a 30-minute drive from downtown Denver, is a free city park with a number of trails – the shortest is 2.2 kilometres but there are longer ones, too – that are extremely popular with hikers and joggers. Also on site is the Colorado Music Hall of Fame, showcasing the state’s diverse musical talent, from John Denver to Phillip Bailey (of groove sensations Earth, Wind & Fire).

Some legendary musicians, including the Beatles (1964) and U2 (1983), have played shows at the amphitheatre, which is formed by two sandstone monoliths that create acoustic perfection. The world-famous venue saw its first performers way back in 1941, and today the summer concert series, from May through October, presents the best artists in jazz, rock, pop, bluegrass and more. Seeing a concert under the stars is a magical experience.
