Win three-day passes to Jazz Aspen Snowmass (Mumford, Steve Miller Band, Michael Franti)By John Hendrickson | August 30th, 2012 | No Comments »
So, who cares if the lineup doesn’t entirely make sense? The annual Jazz Aspen Snowmass Labor Day festival is one of Colorado’s proudest traditions held in a setting that can’t be beat (a wide -pen green space in Snowmass). It’s the summer-into-fall weekend with hot days and cold nights, plus a drive to and from Aspen with the first glimpses of autumn foliage. Among this year’s musical highlights: Steve Miller Band, Sugarland, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Michael Franti and Spearhead and Kid Rock, pictured above. Fresh-faced Colorado folk band You Me & Apollo will kick off Sunday afternoon, and following two sold-out nights at Red Rocks earlier this week, Mumford & Sons will headline Saturday. Tickets, $82.50 daily, $175 three-day, are available through jazzaspensnowmass.org. Or you can win a pair below for free.
