When the concept of holding a concert at Red Rocks during the glacial periods of Colorado’s most bipolar season hit the media, everyone thought the promoters had gone mad. No way would 9,000 people show up to a venue that may or may not be under a foot of snow to freeze their ass off just to go home and tweet about how miserable they were.
Everyone was wrong. In fact, the Icelantic’s Winter on the Rocks is one of the most desirable shows of the year, and with the newly announced lineup – in conjunction with all the other rad things they’ve got going on – it will no doubt be just as successful.
Yesterday the camp took to its social media sites and announced that legendary hip hop group Jurassic 5 would be headlining the 3rd annual event. Coming with it will be Duck Sauce, along with another special guest that has yet to be announced.
If you recall, Jurassic 5 reunited this past year at the Coachella Music and Arts Festval. This will be its first Colorado show in over 8 years. Superb!
