ODESZA announce end of annual Red Rocks run, duo possibly plotting Foreign Family music festival for 2019
The duo recently revealed that they would not be returning to Colorado’s famed Red Rocks Amphitheater in 2019, thereby ending a consecutive four-year streak of annual shows at the venue. The pair assuaged any disappointment that their announcement inspired among listeners in their promise that they had “something big in the works” instead.
Its been an absolute honor to perform at Red Rocks, and 2018 was our favorite yet! After an incredible 4 years in a row, we won’t be returning to Red Rocks in 2019, but we’ve got something big in the works. Stay tuned 😎⬡😎⬡😎

Fans have been waiting attentively to see what Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight’s next joint move will entail, though a festival venture seems like the most likely next move. ODESZA indicated interest in a festival featuring talent from their Foreign Family Collective label in a Reddit AMA hosted in 2017. Fans have speculated that the producers will not only debut a Foreign Family Collective festival in 2019, but will host the rumored event at another iconic outdoor venue — the Gorge Amphitheater, a space that ODESZA has yet to play.
Foreign Family Collective enjoyed an Electric Forest first in 2017 with ODESZA’s own stage, programmed with talent curated from their imprint including Jai Wolf, Chet Porter, Kasbo, and RÜFÜS DU SOL. Launching a festival-style event would be a logical progression, though as speculation continues to mount, ODESZA remain tight lipped. We’ll have to wait and see.
