Denver promoter promises “huge” event announcement on Sept. 9

Triad Dragons — the Colorado-based promoter behind massive festivals and hundreds of club shows each year — will make a significant event announcement at noon on Mon., Sept. 9.

**UPDATE (Sept. 8): Announcement dates has been postponed to Tues, Sept. 17.

Company head Ha Hau has teased the show announcement via Twitter over the past several weeks.

Referring to it as simply “9-9,” Hau began tweeting in July that it would be the “biggest announcement of the year.”

The fact that Hau is hyping the announcement to this degree is significant considering his company produces the always-sold-out Global Dance Festivals at Red Rocks in addition to a handful of other successful festivals and weekly events at Beta Nightclub.

While they’ve kept a lid on most of the event details, Hau’s tweets have revealed that the event will be “way bigger than all three days of Global,” and include two arenas in Colorado, both larger than Red Rocks.

The musical lineup will undoubtedly be diverse. Hau says the event will unite subcultures and include artists he’s never worked with before. He’s tweeted the hastags #trancefamily and #bassfamily as hints, while also referencing the “Titans of EDM” series, which featured a Denver performance by Armin van Buuren in May.

When a fan suggested that it sounded like an event with a $350+ price tag, Hau responded with “it should be,” but that he would keep the price reasonable.

We’ll ultimately have to wait until the official announcement on Monday to learn the full details, but one thing appears to be a sure thing: the entire EDM world will be talking after 9-9.

“If this doesn’t break records, I will quit and just DJ the rest of my life ;),” he joked via Twitter.

Triad Dragons’s next event, Skylab: Neon Planet, is set for Sept. 21 and will feature Kaskade, Dillon Francis, Morgan Page, Manufactured Superstars, Mt. Eden, Luminox, Walden, gLAdiator, Project 46, and more.
