The Know by Denver Post, Jazz Festivals You Should Check Out in
Colorado This Summer
“Jazz Aspen Snowmass has become the textbook example of how to throw
a music festival, combining world-class musicianship with the distinctive
atmosphere the Aspen area has to offer.”
303 Magazine, Colorado Festival Season
“This event, though small and humble, brings a mighty plate to the table
of deciding-which-festivals-to-drop-dough-on. With a stacked lineup of
Maroon 5, Keith Urban, the Roots and Daryl Hall and John Oates, it could
very well be worth it.”
Matador Network, 12 Ways a Trip to Colorado Will Surprise You
“Jazz Aspen Snowmass is one of the state’s premier live music events,
tucked in the bottom of the Roaring Fork Valley. This year’s festival
headliners include Maroon 5, The Roots, Hall & Oates, and Keith Urban.
Yeah, it’s a big deal.”
Forbes, Autumn in Aspen
“In the VIP section you can get so close to the stage that you think
Adam Levine is crooning just to you. Plus, the food is better than any festival
food I’ve ever tasted. Chef Martin Oswald of Aspen’s Pyramid Bistro curated
a menu that this year ranged from super tender grilled veal tongue with
harissa honey carrots to sushi and nutritarian turmeric curry with broccoli,
roasted peppers and forbidden black rice.”

Aspen Times, Jazz Aspen’s Labor Day Experience Has Sold Record
Number of Tickets
“If you don’t already have tickets in hand for the Jazz Aspen Snowmass
Labor Day Experience, you may be out of luck this weekend. This year’s
edition of the annual pop music festival at Snowmass Town Park is the
fastest- and biggest-selling event in its 22-year history.”
Aspen Daily News, The Business of Jazz Aspen Snowmass
“Today JAS operates with a nearly $9 million annual budget that supports
a pair of festivals at two distinct venues while employing six year-round
staffers. It also boasts of the strongest advance ticket sales in its history –
during this weekend’s Labor Day Experience – and has become a key ally
for valley schools to fill in their music education programming gaps.”
Sopris Sun, How Roaring Fork Became a School of Jazz
“The RFHS Jazz Band meets every Wednesday after school under the
directorship of Mark Johnson. JAS has funded Johnson in that role and will
continue to support his position to teach the new class, which will offer
students a college-level music experience.”
Roaring Fork Lifestyle, JAS Aspen Echos Through the Valley
“Two years ago, Basalt teenager Isaac Musselman got to meet Christian
McBride after listening to the Grammy-winning jazz bassist perform at a JAS
concert. As a young musician, Musselman was nervous to play in front of
McBride, but the concert inspired him, and his musical dedication took a shift.”
