Zeds Dead Set Hearts On Fire At The 8th Annual Deadrocks!
This past weekend on July 2nd & 3rd of 2022 was the eighth annual Deadrocks at Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater in Morrison, CO. This incredible two-night event is produced by the iconic electronic duo, Zeds Dead, and happens every July since 2014. The boys were here this past weekend to not only celebrate the return of this annual event but to showcase many up-and-coming artists.
Location, Layout, and Production
Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater is located in Morrison, CO which is only 20 minutes outside of Denver. This unique venue has been a major bucket list item for many past and present artists. Red Rocks has four spacious parking lots along with an accessibility shuttle to take patrons to row 1 for events. Once inside, you’ll be able to experience the beauty of the rocks, the views of the city, and the stunning stage production. The stage consisted of many speakers to carry the sound, large LED boards to show visuals, lots of lasers, and some projections that shined onto the rocks.
Food and Drink
Concession stands with food and drink options are located throughout the amphitheater. Food options include chicken fingers, hot dogs, nachos, popcorn, pretzels, pizza, candy, and chips. For drinks, attendees have options for draft and canned beers, wine, margaritas, Coke products, Red Bull, iced tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and water are also available. There are also many vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options available. To learn more about specialty food and drink, you can click here to go to their website.
The weekend featured a mixture of EDM genres. Attendees were able to enjoy the sounds of bass, dubstep, downtime, psytrance, drum & bass, house, and surrealist club-pop. All of these artists were truly incredible to see perform live. I would highly recommend following them on socials as well as grabbing a ticket to their next show.
Zeds Dead fans got to feel a sense of euphoria during the boys’ set on both nights. The duo played so many tracks that fans have been “chasing” for years. Some of these recognizable tracks included Zeds Dead’s remix of Kiss by Jeuce, No Prayers with Omar LinX, Shut Up & Sing by Greta Svabo Bech (ZD Remix), Flickers by Son Lux (ZD Remix) and many more. Zeds Dead also showcased tracks that collabed with other fellow EDM artists like Subtronics, Peekaboo, Griz, Jauz, Blunts & Blondes, Rezz, and others.
Luckily for fans, the fun just didn’t stop there. Zeds Dead also held their Backyard Jamboree on July 4th which took place at the Civic Center Park located in Downtown Denver and played two more sets that same night for their Deadrocks Hangover show at Mission Ballroom also located in Denver.
