Relive Skrillex’s Insane 2014 Performance At Red Rocks
To this day, the mention of Skrillex‘s 2014 Mothership tour brings envy to any unlucky fan who couldn’t make it out to witness the performance in all of its glory. From the immense, custom-built stage set up to the incomparable track list, venues from San Diego to Miami became Skrillex’s temporary home turf as he crossed back and forth across the United States and Canada.
One of his most noteworthy stops, and one that will surely go down in EDM history, was at Colorado’s famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre on June 21, 2014. Coming as the final destination on the U.S. leg of his tour, crowds poured into the rock-enclosed arena for what would soon be remembered as the show of a lifetime.
After opening sets by Dirt Monkey, Vindata, Tchami, DJ Mustard and Jackbeats, Skrillex’s spacecraft-turned-DJ booth finally emerged from behind the curtain in an explosion of lasers and fog. The next two hours were filled with an unprecedented mixture of his own, classic productions and floor-shaking tracks from his friends and favorite producers.
Watch a recap of the event below, complete with stunning camerawork that makes the stage feel like it’s in your living room.
