Hometown bass music star Illenium headlining Red Rocks in August

Headlining Red Rocks is a major accomplishment for any artist, and it's even more significant for local musicians who were inspired by seeing shows at the iconic Colorado venue. Such is the case for Illenium, the Denver-based producer who aspired to launch his dance music career after seeing Bassnectar at Red Rocks in 2012. Six years later, Illenium has announced his first headlining show at Colorado's majestic outdoor amphitheatre.

Illenium will perform at Red Rocks on Wednesday, Aug. 29 with support to be announced. Tickets for the show go on sale next Friday, Feb. 16, with presale starting on Valentine's Day (get the presale code on Illenium's Facebook). Click here to get tickets to the show on AXS.com.

Illenium will headline Red Rocks in support of his recently-released sophomore studio album Awake. He recently debuted the video for standout track "Crawl Outta Love" featuring Annika Wells.
