Music Scene: Aug. 31–Sept. 6
Billed as “The 72 Hottest Hours Of Summer,” the Jazz Aspen Snowmass Labor Day Festival’s setting actually is pretty cool: Snowmass.
The three-day music festival — Friday through Sunday, Aug. 31 to Sept. 2 — will be set up on the edge of the golf course in Snowmass Village on Brush Creek Road. Free parking is available at the Intercept Lot at the base of Colorado Highway 82 and Brush Creek Road.
According to the festival’s website, the festival schedule is as follows:
n Friday: Doors open at 4 p.m.; Steve Miller Band performs at 6 p.m.; and Sugarland, 8:30 p.m.
n Saturday: Doors open, 2 p.m., Saints of Valory, 3 p.m.; Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, 5 p.m.; and Mumford & Sons, 7:15 p.m.; and The Big Night After Party follows Mumford & Sons
