The Monolith Festival, presented by Esurance, returns to the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO, 15 miles outside of Denver, September 13-14. The festival debuted in 2007 as the first multi-day, multi-stage festival ever held at the outdoor venue and was instantly adopted as an indie fan favorite and a staple of the summer festival season.

Monolith is produced by AEG Live Rocky Mountains and Monolith Festivals, with additional support from the HotFreaks blog collective.

Each year, Monolith hand picks a lineup of indie favorites and blog darlings, which for 2008 includes Denver’s own Devotchka and French electro-buzz-band Justice as headliners.

“It’s a true testament to Colorado’s burgeoning music scene that one of this year’s national breakout acts is also a hometown favorite,” said Monolith’s co-producer Josh Naker in a statement.

Joining the 2008 headliners is a deep and diverse roster including Silversun Pickups, Band of Horses, TV on the Radio, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Vampire Weekend, Avett Brothers, Neko Case, Del tha Funky Homosapien, Mickey Avalon, CSS, Cut Copy, The Kills, Tokyo Police Club and many, many more.

Tickets go on May 2 with various options: a two-day ticket is $110; single day tickets, $59.50; and VIP gold pass, $225.
