Monolith Festival (Awesome of the Day)

Less than an hour outside of Denver at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre, this weekend's Monolith Festival boasts a stellar lineup and an even better view. One of Paste's 40 Best Venues in America ("Best place to have your mind blown by music and nature"), the natural amphitheater of red sandstone monoliths sits in the middle of a State park.

On Saturday, headliners Of Montreal and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are joined by Girl Talk, M. Ward, OK Go, and Paste Best of What's Next artists Frightened Rabbit, Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and Gregory Alan Isakov. On Sunday, The Mars Volta, MSTRKRFT, Chromeo, Passion Pit and Phoenix all take the stage. I'm missing out this year, but Paste will be on hand with video, photos and reports from the festival. If you're anywhere near Colorado, you should too.
