Summertime and outdoor concerts are a classic combination that has gone together for decades. There's nothing like open-air entertainment and we know just the venue to be at this summer! We're talking about the Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado just outside of Denver. There's no better place to enjoy live music and create memories.
100 Years of Acoustic Excellence
In the early 1900's, a visionary named John Brisben Walker realized that the stone formations in the area known as Red Rocks offered the ideal place to hold live music events. The rock formations were naturally crafted in a way that provides an ideal outdoor acoustic environment. The sound quality in this natural park rivals some of the finest man-made concert halls.
Ideal Weather for a Summertime Adventure
The local elevation around Red Rocks is just over 6,400 feet, way too cold for winter entertainment but perfect for summertime shows. Red Rocks offers breathtaking scenery of beautiful sandstone rocks that have been around since prehistoric times, along with a panoramic view of Denver. Guests are sure to enjoy the entertainment as well as the views.
What to Take to a Concert at Red Rocks
To preserve the natural environment, the management asks its guests to refrain from bringing chairs to sit in during entertainment. Many guests stand during the shows or sit right on the sandstone. If you are looking for a more comfortable seating option for your next trip to Red Rocks, then consider a custom cushion that can be made with any fabric of your choice. Here at CushionWorld, we can make custom cushions for concert goers to sit on during the show. Additionally, the venue typically fills pretty fast, and many guests like to mark their seating territory, a custom cushion could help you mark your spot for the remainder of the show so you can focus on the entertainment instead of finding a place to stand.
