The 25th Anniversary JAS Aspen Snowmass Labor Day Experience will feature one of the most exciting line-ups in the non-profit organization’s history. Held Labor Day weekend in Snowmass Town Park (Sept. 4-6) the event features three nights of headliners, all of whom will be making their first ever Aspen appearance. Three day passes for the event will go on-sale Monday, March 23 at 9am mst.
The Experience kicks-off on Friday, September 4th with two of the hottest touring acts on the road. Irish sensation Hozier will headline with Soulsters, Fitz and the Tantrums, who first performed at JAS Labor Day weekend in 2011, opening. Hozier’s “Take Me To Church,” the debut single off of his self-titled 2014 album, has achieved widespread global popularity, becoming a number-one hit in 12 countries and earning a Grammy nomination for Song of the Year. The video has received over 146 million views on YouTube and was Spotify’s most viral song of 2014.
On Saturday, September 5th Grammy Award winning superstars No Doubt will headline in one of only five performances they are scheduled to play in the US this year. “No Doubt is only performing a few select high profile shows at large major festivals this summer, including New Orleans, KAABOO, Bottlerock and Rock in Rio Vegas, so it’s a great honor that they agreed to join JAS for our 25th Season event,” said JAS President and CEO Jim Horowitz.
No Doubt has released several multi-platinum albums (1995’s diamond-certified Tragic Kingdom, 2001’s Rock Steady, and a 2003 singles collection) and a string of chart-topping hits (“Just a Girl,” “Don’t Speak,” “Hey Baby,” “Hella Good,” and “It’s My Life”). Lead singer Gwen Stefani has further emerged as a global music and fashion icon via two best-selling solo albums and multiple clothing lines.
Reggae artist Jimmy Cliff will open for No Doubt at 5pm in his first JAS appearance since 2000. A 3pm act for Saturday has yet to be announced.
Closing the Experience on Sunday, Sept. 6 at 7:30pm, yet another International superstar, Lenny Kravitz will perform. Kravitz, a multi-instrumentalist and actor, is known for his elaborate stage performances and music videos. He won the Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance for four years in a row (1999-2002), breaking the record for most wins in that category as well as setting the record for most consecutive wins in one category by a male.
Denver based rock band The Fray will open for Lenny at 5pm with a 3pm act still to be announced. The Fray achieved national success with their 2005 debut, featuring the hit singles “Over My Head (Cable Car)” and “How to Save a Life,” which went double-platinum.
“Having one of the breakout artists of 2014-15 in Hozier added to our concert bill, as well as multi-Grammy winning rock and fashion icon Lenny Kravitz, plus Colorado’s own nationally recognized pop rock headliners in their own right, The Fray… All in all it looks like 2015 will, no doubt, be the biggest event in JAS history across the three days,” added Horowitz.
