Recommended: Above & Beyond w/ Mat Zo, Moon Boots Live, Fairchild @ Red Rocks

Is there a better way to spend a Saturday night in Denver than with a concert at Red Rocks? We don’t think so, which is why we recommend seeing Above & Beyond as they take on Colorado’s legendary amphitheater this Saturday, presented by Global Dance. Above & Beyond are known for their DJ skills and their ability to bring down the house when it comes to their performances. Fellow artists Mat Zo, Moon Boots Live and Fairchild are on the bill for this Saturday night as well.
