Over Winter X Games, the spotlight isn’t just on the athletes. This weekend, back-to-back days of outdoor concerts in Aspen’s Wagner Park put international acts in front of snow-sports fans making for a happy combination of winter and music. 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 also play at 5:15 p.m., following Axwell, who is one-third of the electronic trio Swedish House Mafia.
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. Both Phoenix and Tiesto are also playing late-night shows at Belly Up Aspen on the same day they perform outdoors; tickets are sold separately but also available on the Belly Up website.
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.
