Denver is a thriving arts and culture center, and music is a big part of the Mile High City’s charm. From world-class arenas to a wide array of smaller venues, here’s a music lover’s guide to Denver…

Red Rocks Amphitheatre

Red Rocks Amphitheatre is probably what people think of when they think of Denver music. And for good reason. This naturally formed amphitheater has a long history of hosting some of music’s biggest acts. It’s a truly one-of-a-kind experience to catch a concert here under the stars.

Travel fever + a fever for this hunkkk (Bucket List: Denver, CO ✔️)

Fillmore Auditorium

The Fillmore Auditorium in Denver’s Capitol Hill neighborhood is an excellent venue with a wide array of big-name musical acts. Tickets for the Fillmore Auditorium can be purchased through Live Nation.

Ogden Theatre

The Ogden Theatre, also located in Denver’s Capitol Hill, hosts 150 concerts every year through AEG Live. The building is also a registered Denver landmark as well as a National Historic landmark.

Only one more week until we get to jam out with the @stringdusters for TWO (!) whole nights. Who’s ready?!

Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox is a restaurant, bar and live music venue unlike any other. Ophelia’s likes to call itself a “gastro-brothel.” The multi-level space is decorated like an old-fashioned peep show parlor, and visitors can expect to enjoy food and cocktails along with live music almost every night of the week.
