Following a record setting year in 2017, which saw the first ever two-night advance sell-out in JAS history, the organization has announced two headliners and supporting acts for the 2018 JAS Labor Day Experience. Multiplatinum Grammy-award winning artists the Zac Brown Band will return to JAS, following sold-out stadium shows at Denver’s Coors Field and Chicago’s Wrigley Field during the band’s 50-market ‘WELCOME HOME Tour.” Also headlining, Lionel Richie will make his first ever Aspen/Snowmass appearance in one of only a handful of shows he’ll perform outside of his Las Vegas residency next year.

Opening acts that have been confirmed include local favorite Michael Franti and Spearhead, and a return of the high-energy band Fitz and the Tantrums. Additional opening acts, along with the final headliner, will be announced later this winter, along with the specific days and times that each artist will be performing.

Three-day Early Bird event passes at $219.95 plus fees, will be on-sale Monday, December 18th beginning at 9am mst. Early Bird single day tickets will go on-sale at a later date. All sales are based on availability, with an increase in prices later this winter. In addition to the 3-day general admission pass JAS will also be selling the 3-Day Deck Passes which include complimentary grille fare, private restrooms and a private bar with complimentary beer, wine and a daily cocktail.

Patron (VIP) 3-day passes will also be available on Monday. Patron passes include parking, afternoon grille fare, live cooking stations, gourmet dinner and dessert, premium open bars and are substantially tax-deductible. JAS is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization that has contributed over $7 million to music education programs since 1996.
