“A place where the beer flows like wine where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. A little place called Aspen.” – Lloyd Christmas (Dumb & Dumber, 1994)
Aspen, Colorado is recognized around the world as being a mecca for skiers, snowboarders, and all types of outdoor enthusiasts. And this coming week, the town will host the annual Winter X-Games from January 25th-28th at Buttermilk Mountain for what is sure to be another epic event of downhill speed, aerial stunts, and snow-filled madness. In addition to the event itself, there will be plenty of music to keep attendees going into the night after the sun goes down and all have strapped out of their equipment.
The town’s premier venue, Belly Up Aspen, is set to host some of the music industry’s biggest names over the course of the long weekend. Hip-hop legends Method Man & Redman will kick off the festivities on January 24th, followed by two nights of Brooklyn’s own dance-rockers LCD Soundsystem on January 25th and 26th. On the following night, January 27th, super producer Martin Garrix will take the stage at Belly Up Aspen, before bass/house DJ Marshmello rounds out the series on January 28th.
Since opening its doors back in 2005, the 450-person capacity club has drawn in major international headliners from across the globe seeking to play one of the most popular towns in the world to intimate crowds that they just don’t get to perform in front of a regular basis anymore. Whether you want rock, dance, hip-hop, funk, or bluegrass, the Belly Up Aspen delivers the goods to fans of all genres. This coming weekend is no different, as the venue has all the proverbial bases covered.
One thing is for certain, the combination of the Winter X-Games and the wealth music surrounding the event is going to make Aspen “Party Central” from January 24th-28th.
