Spending the day surrounded by Colorado’s inimitable natural beauty—rugged mountains, sturdy trees, deep blue skies, the rustle of the breeze among the greenery—sounds like heaven for tree-huggers and Earth-lovers. Then add the throbbing excitement of electronic music presented in all its stylistic variety, and you have a quintessential outdoor music lover’s paradise.
AEG is bringing two incredible summer sound spectaculars, Anjunabeats Outdoors on Saturday August 19, and then Mammoth Mountain II on Saturday and Sunday August 26-27, both at Echo Mountain Ski Resort a short drive west, 36 miles from downtown Denver near Idaho Springs. It’s the closest ski resort to Denver, for winter warriors.
The peaks will echo with musical layers of EDM, dubstep, trance and techno, with progressive cross-genre textures and layers of dynamic sound collages built up like hypnotic audio paintings that will take audiences for both events on rhythmic hikes in the midst of Rocky Mountain beauty. The moods and pacing will be controlled by a lineup of world-class spinmasters working their DJ magic while pulsating lights and lasers add visual support to dance to.
Anjunabeats Outdoors returns to the high country Aug. 19 featuring the British label’s acclaimed roster of artists including ALPHA 9, Amy Wiles, anamē, Andrew Bayer, Gabriel & Dresden, Mat Zo and Sunny Lax. There will be incredible production values, which Anjunabeats brings to all its showcases; local-minded food and drink, and fun festival extras that make Anjunabeats Outdoors the can’t-miss event of the summer.
Mammoth Mountain II on Aug. 26 and 27 is a sequel to the original two-day party presented by Wooli at Mishawaka last October, showcasing an international lineup of brilliant, creative and talented DJs. On Saturday, enjoy Tape B, Vastive, Notixx and Stumpi, Wooli’s tech-house alter-ego. The next day Layz, DNMO, Shank Aaron and Stumpi take the stage and keep the party raging. In addition to the heart-pumping, mood-shifting music audiences can expect art installations, ice carvers, face painters, live muralists, vendors and food trucks galore.
These two concert events at Echo Mountain promise to help make the summer of 2023 an unforgettable musical season!
NOTE: Getting to Echo Mountain for these events requires some planning. Because this is a unique Colorado venue, we recommend purchasing a round trip bus ticket (pick up will be at the Wooly Mammoth Lot, 18540 US-40, Golden) near Red Rocks. There are a limited number of on-site parking spots available starting at $55 per space. You can purchase this as an add-on when you purchase your ticket. Once parking is sold out, it is sold out.
