The Après will feature performances throughout the weekend from artists assembled to celebrate spring in the mountains. The String Cheese Incident and Umphrey’s McGee headline the weekend with additional artists being announced soon.
"Over the years, the group has always been able to stay one step ahead when it comes to creating unique experiences for their fans, from their storied Horning’s Hideout events to their return from hiatus at Rothburyin 2009 (which would go on to become Electric Forest) to the now-annual Suwannee Hulaweencelebration down in Florida. All the while, the band has worked with some of the best production teams in the world to create unforgettable spectacles for fans of all genres to enjoy and revel in." -Chris Meyer, Liveforlivemusic.com
“ . . . genre distinction was never big enough for what Umphrey's McGee actually do, which is closer to pop-smart and dance-wise progressive rock, laced with exuberant improvisation and flush with intense, melodic craft.” - David Fricke, Rolling Stone
