Savoy and Lotus at Red Rocks on September 7 and September 8. Tickets on sale Sat. April 14.
Dance music has always been a major draw in Denver -- the birthplace of Beatport and the home to Beta and the Church, each considered among the best clubs in the world at one time or another -- but right now, it's just exploding in the mainstream across the country. Need proof? See this year's Grammys, the New York Times trend piece published earlier this week. Or locally, consider the recent format shift of Hot 107.1, or just take a look at this summer's Red Rocks lineup. It's so dance heavy, we hear God is working on a new light show as we speak.
