The Winter X Games is entering its 23rd year at its home in Aspen, Colorado. Extreme snow sport athletes and fans will converge on the base of Buttermilk Mountain for four days of blistering competition and musical bliss in January. As the event nears its evening off-hours each night, a concert celebration takes shape off to the side of the ski resort. Everyone from The Chainsmokers and Martin Garrix to marshmello and Bassnectar have heated up the X Games stage over the years.

This year, X Games is bringing top-tier musical talent along for the ride. The 2020 roster includes a Friday set from rowdy hip-hop act Rae Sremmurd. Saturday sees Swedish electro-house star Alesso and Colorado’s own melodic bass mastermind Illenium, with Sunday’s festivities inviting Bazzi to headline for a fresh dose of R&B/pop action.

The 2019 Winter X Games will take shape in Aspen, January 23-26. Access to the sporting events is free, but tickets are required for concert entry and are on sale now.
