With the 2016 Red Rocks season coming to a end as of last night, with it comes a beacon of light and some good news for Denver concert-goers. Icelantic’s Winter on the Rocks will return Friday, January 27 for its 6th annual show. The headliners for 2017’s Winter on the Rocks will be Zedd, Anderson .Paak & the Free Nationals and Lil Dicky with more to be announced. The news was released this morning on the event’s Facebook page, breathing life into the up-and-coming 2017 Red Rocks concert season.
This will be Zedd’s first return to Red Rocks since his Morrison debut at the 2014 Global Dance Festival. Zedd is a German-Russian DJ and music producer who certainly made a big splash in the US with the release of his track “Clarity.” The song ended up winning him a Grammy for Best Dance Recording in the 56th Annual Grammy awards. His latest music release was a single called “Ignite”for the 2016 World League of Legends Competition, though there may be more new music coming from the artist in the months to come before January. Anderson .Paak also played Red Rocks this past June, as well as Vertex Music Festival in Buena Vista, CO this past summer.
