Zedd made his way back to the beautiful Mile High City late last month. The international superstar DJ hit Red Rocks Amphitheatre in the beautiful city of Morrison, featuring Audien, Matoma, and Disco Lines as openers. The night from start to finish, was an epic, emotional night listening to some of the top songs in dance music and the EDM world today! Zedd, or Anton Zaslavski, is known for being an untouchable, internationally ranked producer, DJ and musician who hailed originally from Germany. His massive sound has produced some of the biggest hits in dance music, including “Clarity” ft. Foxes (2012) and “Stay the Night” featuring Hailey Williams. From Grammy’s to MTV Awards, Zedd is a musical powerhouse, and the openers he chose for this night were the perfect touch to a beautiful and truly unforgettable show.

Starting The Night Off Strong

The night began with openers Melody Lines, local Denver favorites who dabble in live, funky-sounding, hybrid-electro music. Their set was an epic amalgamation of both the live and electronic, funky elements we know and love as the crowds began to pour in the rows and up and on their feet. The night started out strong, with two stronger openers to follow. Next, Audien and Matoma both performed after the electronic trio. Audien’s musical style is focused primarily in house, electro-house, trap, and trance sounds. His massive sound and production skills have also landed this young artist Grammys within the electronic realm. If you have never seen an Audien performance, it is not one to miss. It was truly a swelling musical performance from start to finish, one that will evoke both tears and make you shuffle on your feet for hours with his big-room sound. Then, Audien performed a set that was nothing but pure magic. The crowd was high in energy and ready for the show to go on.

Next up, Matoma performed this night as well, which was the perfect addition to this night of music. Matoma’s “happy house” sound and Kygo-like synths and sounds make Matoma one of the strongest names in house music in the electronic scene today. This is clearly for a good reason. Matoma has the ability to control a crowd and have the entire room dancing. Lastly, he prepared the crowd for the epic headliner to come.

Time for Zedd to Shine

Finally, Zedd hit the stage towards the end of the night. The crowd burst into an eruption of cheers and hollers for the DJ. Zedd performed epic deep-house hits, combined with his signature sounds and even throwing in his top hits like Clarity. Hearing 9,500 people at Red Rocks sing these lyrics at the top of their lungs is unforgettable! Lastly, the show was a success, leaving concert-goers, Zedd lovers, and ravers alike all wanting to stay the night… all night long.
