Winter X Games isn’t just for super athletes anymore. This year, some of the world’s hottest musical acts will take the spotlight, with the announcement from ESPN that Phoenix and Tiesto will be playing outdoor concerts in downtown Aspen’s Wagner Park. On Saturday, Jan. 25, Grammy-award winners Phoenix will play a 5:15 p.m. show, with indie rockers Matt & Kim taking the stage at 4 p.m. Then on Sunday, one of the world’s biggest DJs, Tiesto, will play at the same time following Axwell, who is one-third of the electronic trio Swedish House Mafia.
All four X Games Music Presents shows will benefit The V Foundation for Cancer Research. Fans can purchase general admission tickets to the shows for $30 or Premium Club tickets for $150, all at Belly Up Aspen. Premium Club tickets include heated platform viewing as well as food and drinks.
2014 marks the second year of X Games MUSIC Presents, which in its debut year featured acts such as Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, 50 Cent, Zedd and AWOLNATION.
