How to Get There

Red Rocks Amphitheatre has long been revered as a great venue for music enthusiasts. Its geological formation is unmatched, while musicians have come to love its natural beauty and outstanding acoustics over time.

Parking is included with your ticket and lots open two hours prior to shows. We suggest arriving early so as to secure a spot in either of the Upper or Lower lots which are closer to the venue and require less uphill walking.

Shuttles run to Red Rocks from Denver and Boulder, while there is an official Lyft pick-up location in Lower South Lot 2. Keep in mind that cell service may be limited at Red Rocks; to maximize your enjoyment plan ahead by downloading offline maps and setting meeting points with your friends.

Getting There

Red Rocks offers music fans an unforgettable experience, from its stunning acoustics and towering prehistoric rock formations, to stunning views and jaw-dropping acoustics. Seeing a show here will remain unforgettable in their memory forever.

Parking at the venue is included with your concert ticket, with lots opening approximately two hours prior to doors. To guarantee yourself an upper lot space, plan on arriving even earlier.

Keep in mind that cell service at the park may be limited, so having an alternate meeting point could prove useful if you lose contact with friends. Also keep in mind the high altitude can increase thirst levels so be sure to drink lots of water and pace yourself if drinking alcohol.


Showgoers at most venues can enjoy ample parking, which is often included with ticket costs. Most lots usually open two hours prior to concert start times so arriving early ensures a spot and minimizes traffic congestion.

Upper North Lot is a fan favorite and offers the shortest walk to the amphitheater, however it fills quickly. When that space fills up quickly, Lower South Lot is another good alternative with short uphill walks leading straight to it – and is where rideshare services like Lyft drop off and pick up passengers. When tailgating be sure to check for any food or beverage restrictions ahead of time!


This venue takes its name from the massive sandstone formations that surround it and boasts impressive acoustics, drawing artists back again and again to perform at this beloved Colorado treasure.

Your ticket should indicate if you have General Admission or reserved seating. If in doubt, feel free to speak to the staff member at the venue in order to clarify.

Bring along a small blanket or cushion for added comfort during longer events, as stone seating can be cold and hard. Snacks in factory sealed containers would also come in handy; for added sun protection bring along a hat as well!


Red Rocks may be known for its challenging stairs, but there are ways it can become easier for concertgoers with accessibility needs. More wheelchair-accessible seats will soon be added along with improvements made to shuttle parking and seating areas according to Butler.

She has since taken over as director of Denver‘s Division of Disability Rights in March and made efforts to increase access at this iconic venue since settling a $48,000 lawsuit alleging they charged more for accessible tickets than other seats. Improvements include taking measures such as removing wooden benches from wheelchair accessible seats to accommodate more individuals with disabilities as well as adding designated seating for cane or walker users and those in front of an onstage interpreter.

Getting Around

Red Rocks is an internationally-renowned outdoor concert venue and home to incredible hiking trails and breathtaking natural formations, making it a must-see for nature enthusiasts.

Residents and visitors to the amphitheatre regularly come here for a thigh-burning workout on its famed steps, or to attend one of Film On The Rocks events featuring classic and cult films, or Yoga On the Rocks events.

Transportation options at the amphitheater vary; car is by far the preferred way, though public transit such as shuttles or party buses are also available. Many will drop you off at Lower South Lot 2 before the show and pick you up afterwards.
