The festival returns March 18 through April 17 with three big-name national acts as part of The Bud Light Free Concert Series featuring Michael Franti & Spearhead, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, and Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue.

The festivities kick off the weekend of March 18 with the GoPro Big Mountain Challenge and continue through closing day with a series of signature events including competitions, kids’ events and free concerts.

2015 BRECK SPRING FEVER BUD LIGHT CONCERT SERIES:

The Bud Light Concert Series puts the spotlight on national acts performing live on April 9, 16 and 17 right there at the base of Peak 8, on the mountain at Breckenridge Ski Resort.

April 9­: Michael Franti & Spearhead

Michael Franti combines his love of R&B, hip-hop, reggae and poetry into a unique blend of music that inspires both the soul and mind. Franti is a charismatic performer and lead vocalist who connects seamlessly with his audience during his live performances. On his recent album, All People, Franti exudes a sun-drenched and upbeat vibe, especially in his new song, “I’m Alive (Life Sounds Like)” which sets the scene for his other whistle-along hits. Franti’s humanitarian, social justice, and peace efforts continue to inspire his music and are infused throughout his upcoming album on Fantasy Records due to release in May 2016.

April 16: Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real

Lukas Nelson first picked up a guitar at the age of 11 and practiced his craft by playing along to classic Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jimi Hendrix songs. The son of music legend Willie Nelson, Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real electrify fans year-round with performances across the country, while also backing for the Neil Young band. Their cowboy, beach-hippy vibe meshes with a gritty rock and roll feel that creates a high-energy and infectious live set. At the heart of Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real is their undying passion of Rock n Roll that speaks from the heart.

April 17: Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue

New Orleans native Trombone Shorty is the bandleader and frontman in the hard-edged funk band, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue. He began playing professionally at the age of five, and now Trombone Shorty and his band tour internationally with their unique style that employs rock dynamics, a hip-hop beat and improvisation in a jazz tradition.
