Red Rocks Guides: What Can I Bring to Red Rocks Amphitheatre?
Red Rocks Amphitheatre Permitted and Prohibited Items
Red Rocks Amphitheatre is one of the most iconic music and arts venues in the entire world. Nestled among the beauty of the natural rocks formations that frame the arena, Red Rocks has been a part of Colorado history for almost a hundred years. It’s no wonder then that music lovers from around the world flock to this one-of-a-kind venue.
As Red Rocks draws fans from all stretches of the globe, it’s understandable that attendees come with plenty of questions. Tourists have spent hundreds (or thousands) of dollars on tickets, transportation and accommodations, and no one wants their good time ruined by not knowing all of the Red Rocks Amphitheatre Rules and Regulations.
At Festy GoNuts, we always want you to have the best experience wherever you go. Our motto is “Be Your Fest Self.” The best way to do that is to have all of the mundane in order and to be properly prepared, so you can forget your worries and Dance Like Everyone’s Watching!
