Live music and springtime in the mountains go together like skiing and après. While we’d prefer The sun to never set on winter, we’re excited to announce that the celebration of a so far, so snowy 2018-2019 season at Aspen Snowmass is gearing up to go down like none other with the launch of our NEW spring music and mountain festival, The Après, April 5-7, 2019.

In collaboration with renowned live music venue, Belly Up Aspen, The Après is a brand new three-day music and mountain festival that will be held on the snow at the base of Buttermilk at the same venue as X Games Aspen. During Buttermilk's closing weekend, the festival will kick off with Umphrey’s McGee on Friday, April 5 followed by back-to-back nights of jamming with The String Cheese Incident. The Après will also include performances from special guests; Moon Taxi, The Main Squeeze, Southern Avenue, and ALO. Take to the slopes Saturday, April 6 and Sunday, April 7 and catch Après on the mountain with sets by Chain Station, Jon Cumming and Bunch of Strangers, Meadow Mountain, and The Sweet Lillies. Après on the mountain will take place at Snowmass, Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, and Buttermilk from 12 - 2 PM, before the festival kicks off at Buttermilk. Aside from musical performances, all four Aspen Snowmass mountains will be open for skiing, riding and celebrating spring.

Aspen Snowmass will offer three-day music festival passes along with all-inclusive packages for lift tickets and lodging through Stay Aspen Snowmass.
