Safe in Sound Festival’s tour is approaching its stop in Colorado on Saturday, October 3rd to rally all of the state’s grimy bass lovers at the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield. This year’s lineup will make for one ear-ringing next morning with: NERO, Bro Safari, Zomboy, Dirtyphonics and TERRAVITA, the latter to open the night (Doors: 6pm).
This will be the 18th stop out of the 28 other cities on the Safe in Sound tour. It began in Montreal on September 3rd and will end in DC over a month later on October 25th. What sets Colorado’s show apart is that NOT ONE of the other 27 stops has Nero on the bill. Instead there are some other heavy hitting names like Flux Pavillion, Datsik, Delta Heavy, LNY TNZ, Getter, Figure and Modestep; Safe in Sound has strong hankering for all kinds of dubstep, trap, drum & bass, and hardstyle, but let’s be real, NOTHING can beat Nero as the headliner, and in what better state than Colorado? Last year the UK native trio closed out HARD Red Rocks in an incredible display of talent from all three musicians (see our photos from HARD Red Rocks 2014 here). Alana Watson’s angelic voice is audible ecstasy, and her presence on stage is something that sets this group far apart from the rest.
All five of the artists preforming have released fresh new music within the past year. Nero’s 2015 album Between II Worlds released just six days ago has received lots of love from fans and critics alike, “If you’re looking for an album showcasing depth and surprising breadth of musical skills, this is a must-listen. Feeling like the first official chapter in a story whose ending is sure to eclipse its already impressive start, this album successfully proves that awfully impressive pop sounds exist beyond dubstep” (Insomiac). Bro Safari’s early 2014 Animal, Zomboy’s 2015 release Resurrected, Dirtyphonics’ 2015 Write Your Future, and TERRAVITA’s 2015 album, Alternate Reality, will all have songs featured the night of Safe in Sound, guaranteed. The night of October 3rd is going to get rowdier and grimier than any other show to cruise through the1STBANK Center this year. Here’s a taste of one track off of each of the albums mentioned above.
The real kicker is the massive PK Sound System that will be adorning the stage, eliminating any chance of you hearing the day after the show. The wubs will be breath-takingly powerful, as PK Sound puts out 150,000 watts to make vibrations from the bass reverberate through the entire body. Make sure you have your calendar cleared for the night of October 3rd so you can scoop you and a friend some tickets. Wake me up when September ends please!
