Billboard Magazine’s new No. 1 on its year-end chart of top-grossing and best-attended venues? It’s Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
“It’s been an absolute whirlwind, and extremely gratifying, getting from a year that devastated so many in our industry to our own record-breaking season,” said Ginger White, executive director, Denver Arts & Venues, the city agency that operates Red Rocks. “We’re proud to play a part in Denver’s economic and cultural recovery by providing so many Colorado residents and visitors a place to gather for the joyous return of live music.”
Billboard’s Boxscore named Red Rocks Amphitheatre as the top-grossing, most-attended concert venue of any size, anywhere in the world for 2021, which was also the venue’s 80th anniversary. Red Rocks broke its own season record with 233 ticketed paid events, including 177 concerts, 20 yoga/fitness programs and 36 movies in the Film on the Rocks series.
“A Red Rocks season like this is a tribute to dedicated artists, promoters, staff and fans,” said Tad Bowman, venue director. “Red Rocks is a special place, and every person who steps on stage, serves a drink, greets a customer, or buys a ticket owns a piece of this success.”
Highlights of Red Rocks’ recent season included The 8 O’Clock Howl, an 80th anniversary celebration; a six-night stand with electronic music artist/producer Zhu; first-time headlining appearances from a number of performers; and record-extending dates from Widespread Panic.

Booking a Camp Site Online Has Never Been Easier Thanks to Campspot
If you’ve tried to book a camping spot at a private campground in the past, you’ve likely been frustrated by the somewhat antiquated reservations system a lot of private campgrounds use. You have to submit your information on a website, then wait for the campground to confirm, and that’s only if the campsite allows you to even book online. Some make you call or email. Nothing’s instantaneous or easy. However, if you use Campspot, it can be.
