So this is it– the big weekend where extreme sports combines forces with epic nightlife and late night parties. You ready??
Not only is the weekend just about a competition, but rather it embodies the lifestyle of what it ultimately means to go “extreme.” The sport of skiing and snowboarding ignite our iconic town of Aspen into a mecca of celebrity athletes and musical talent, providing unreal experiences for both locals and tourists alike.
Messenger Aspen wants to help you avoid the uncertainty of whats happening and where its all going down- here we break down all the upcoming parties and venues and how to navigate your weekend of wild!
Aspen’s favorite place for live music! This years X-Games Belly Up delivers some serious productions- NAS, Kygo, DeadMau5, Run the Jewels, and Twenty One Pilots, DJ Snake to just scratch the surface! Most of the concerts for this venue are sold out- so tough luck if your too late on the game! You can check availability HERE
Friday Night will be hosted by Hustle Simmons and local clothing company, ISVERA.
Saturday evening will be the Official X-Games Party DJ’d by RUCKUS. Definitely will be the place to see and be seen, athletes and babes will be holding it down!
Name says it all – Pablo Escobar’s private plane serves as one of Aspen’s longest standing clubs. Friday is off limits folks- Red Bull is hosting their own private party- but Saturday will be a banger of serious DJ action featuring a battle of the DJ’s showcasing local artists.
Gravity Productions “The Palace“
A new addition to this years X-Games, come see the renovated Palace restored to its former glory with a fresh and new artistic vision. Friday features Lafa Taylor, who bridges the worlds of hip hop and electronic dance music, accompanied by Paragon, who together provide a pretty wild spectacle. Saturday features Dimond Saints, both shows will easily the grooviest and best dance party throughout town all weekend!
Perfect spot on the corner to jump around and call home base- DJ parties every night and cocktails on tap keep the party flowing! Flashback Friday with DJ Milk $$$ and DJ Flo from NYC on Saturday!
Aspens hottest new club- come check on the music stylings of DJ Kieran Taylor hailing from the UK. Best place in town for bottle service, plus their giant disco ball always gets the dance party going with old throwback tracks. A Messenger Aspen fave (Aspen Extreme anyone!?)
The Locals favorite bar- Whiskey Rush has some of the best drink specials all week. $4 Domestic Beer, $8 Vodka Redbull, and 1/2 price Belair Champagne bubbles make this place the go-to for some serious fun. Shawn Sabo from Manufactured Superstars kicks off the Whiskey Rush lineup for the weekend on Friday, followed by local legend Berkel Beats on the ones and twos to keep ya groovin. Finally Mike Majic on Sunday for all you die-hards who just didn’t get enough party out!
