Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Morrison, CO

Photo 25-9-13 13 26 14Red Rocks Amphitheater is well recoginzed as one of the prominent outdoor venues in the United States. In mid-2013, K2 Audio was retained by the City of Denver Department of Arts and Venues to investigate sound levels in neighboring residential areas, and to propose operating sound level protocols for specific types of events. K2 staff tested noise and vibration in areas both within and outside the venue boundaries, and under various loudspeaker configurations. Draft protocols were then proposed based on the results of the testing. These protocols were refined and adopted by the City, and instated for use at Red Rocks during the 2014 concert season.
K2 continued to provide concert sound measurements at Red Rocks through the end of the 2017 season, monitoring more than 100 concerts, from 3 different measurement locations, both within the venue, as well as in the City of Morrison and unincorporated Jefferson County.
