Breckenridge Ski Resort announced today the band lineup for this year’s free Bud Light Concert Series as part of Breck’s annual Spring Fever Festival, which features more than 40 events taking place from March 22 through April 27, aka closing day. The Bud Light Concert Series features four concert days of big-name national acts on Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons on the mountain.
All concerts will be free to the public and will take place on a specially-constructed stage on the snow just outside One Ski Hill Place, a RockResort, at the base of Peak 8, from 2-5 p.m. on each concert date.
“We’re extremely excited to be able to bring our guests another unbeatable lineup of live national acts to celebrate the end of ski season this year,” said Kieran Cain, Breck’s director of marketing. “At Breck, we always aim to end ski season with a bang. We couldn’t be more thrilled about the great mix of headliners that we’re bringing in this year, which will give all our guests just that much more reason to come visit one more time before the end of the season.”
Without further ado, here’s the lineup for the Breck Spring Fever Bud Light Concert Series…
Saturday, April 12, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy: Known for such hits as Go Daddy-O, You & Me & the Bottle Makes 3 Tonight (Baby), and Mr. Pinstripe Suit, and the band’s appearance at the Super Bowl XXXIII halftime show in 1999, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy is a big deal at Breck.
Sunday, April 13, The Gin Blossoms: The Grammy-nominated group, with its blend of pop and rock, became a musical force that helped define the sound of ‘90s radio. With hits like Follow You Down, Til I Hear It From You and Hey Jealousy, the band was a crossover hit in four different radio formats. After a series of charting singles, the band broke up in 1997 and reunited in 2002, releasing a fourth album, Major Lodge Victory, in 2006, and a fifth, No Chocolate Cake, in 2010
Friday, April 18, Yonder Mountain String Band: This Colorado native foursome blends bluegrass, rock and countless other influences. With a traditional lineup of instruments, Yonder Mountain String Band has created music that transcends any genre, as evidenced by their legions of loyal fans from Colorado and beyond.
Saturday, April 19, Blues Traveler: One of the world’s legendary jam bands, Blues Traveler has released a total of nine studio albums, four of which have gone gold, three platinum, and one six-times platinum. Blues Traveler have sold more than 10 million combined units worldwide, played over 2,000 live shows in front of more than 30 million people, and with the hit song Run-Around, had the longest-charting radio single in Billboard history, which earned a Grammy.
