Vail’s Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater will host another great weekend of concerts during the GoPro Mountain Games, which brings thousands of athletes and spectators together for a four-day celebration of mountain sports, art and music.

On Thursday, the nonprofit Vail Valley Foundation, which organizes the event, announced the concert lineup for the Music Hills series. Tickets go on sale at 11am MountainGames.com.

The Amp kicks things off on June 6 with Australian singer-songwriter Xavier Rudd and opening act Mike Love. June 7 features high-energy music festival favorites with co-headliners Lotus and Daniel Donato’s Cosmic Country. On June 8th, Leftover Salmon’s Andy Thorn & Friends will open for one of the most successful bands in the roots rock scene: Dispatch. This will be the only Colorado show for the Dispatch in 2024.

“We’re fed up with this Mountain of Music lineup, as well as offering these concerts at great ticket prices,” Event Director Dave Dressman said. “For Dispatch and Andy Thorn, it’s a return to our beautiful theatre, where they no doubt have fond memories of some absolutely amazing performances. For Xavier Rudd, this will be his third appearance at the Mountain Games, however, he has never played at the Amp as both of his previous shows were held in Vail Village. We can’t wait to see them return, and welcome new actors to what we hope will be some very memorable shows.”
