Big Gigantic Sets Supporting Acts For 'Rowdytown III'

Big Gigantic Sets Supporting Acts For 'Rowdytown III'

BIG GIGANTIC revealed the support acts for their annual hometown show "ROWDYTOWN," set for Friday, September 26 and Saturday, September 27 at the famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado. The third annual event-which has expanded to two days in 2014--will feature different lineups for each night, offering fans an even bigger party this year. Supporting BIG GIGANTICon Friday, September 26 will be Brooklyn-based electro-house trio Savoy, Canadian electronic music duo DVBBS, Kansas-based brother duo The Floozies and two tweener sets from producer/DJ Trippy Turtle; Saturday's lineup will feature the newly reunited Toronto trio The New Deal, hip-hop duo Caked Up, Atlanta-based electronic producer HeRobust and another two tweener sets fromTrippy Turtle.

These artists join a growing list of exciting up-and-coming talent BIG GIGANTIC has brought out in previous years such as Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Dillon Francis, GRiZ and Raw Russ in 2012 and Adventure Club, Carnage and Manic Focus in 2013. Debuting in 2012 to a sold-out crowd of more than 9,450 fans and voted the #1 EDM show of that year by the Westword, ROWDYTOWN I marked the first time an artist ever used projection mapping visuals on the venue's famous rocks. The second installment used even bigger lighting rigs and twice the projection mapping, with Stan Shkrobor from EDMTUNES.COM calling the show's visuals "the you-gotta-see-it-to-believe-it projection mapping!" (10/1/13). Expect to see even more projection mapping on the rocks for the third year! Watch a video recap from "Rowdytown II" here: http://vimeo.com/76547872
