Headlining Red Rocks for the first time in 2016, Australian producer Flume will be back once again on July 5, 2017, but this time with a Grammy in his back pocket for Best Dance/Electronic Album. With electronic music slowly infiltrating the mainstream,  Flume is leading the way with his artistic taste on synthesizers and drums, all to a slower beat that has hypnotized the world. Look for the crowd at this show to not only be the young raving type, but a whole spectrum of music lovers who have discovered Flume to be more than a DJ but a sound architect who molds everything from pop, hip-hop, indie and EDM into simply an amazing show. Flume will be joined first by fellow Aussie, Touch Sensitive who brings a dream-like and indie sound to dance music. Next, you will find many fans who are excited for the second opener, Baauer a trap-music god that will try to outshine Flume on the energy level side of things. This night will be a guarantee early sell-out show so make sure to grab your tickets Friday, February 24 at 10 a.m. sharp.
