What’s the word with the Dillon Amphitheater?

  No one wants to have their goodies or possessions taken by security and you absolutely don’t want to get thrown out of a show that you paid good money to see! We can all agree that nothing kills the vibe of a concert worse than people breaking the rules and interrupting the experience. So let’s not be those people and have an epic show…alright?! Just do everyone a favor and check out what to bring to the Dillon Amphitheater before you go!

  We’re pretty excited about live music in 2021 and there is no better way to spend it than relaxing in the mountains with some rad tunes in the background! The Dillon Amphitheater is nestled on the northern “beach” of Dillon Reservoir and has some epic views of the mountains. The amphitheater itself is only a few years old at this point and not everyone has gotten to experience the greatness of this venue. With some huge artists such as, The String Cheese Incident and Dark Star Orchestra already tearing up the stage, we, like many, were wondering what is okay and NOT okay to bring to the Dillon Amphitheater? So we did the research for you and compiled it all into this one readable blog!
