BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. — Feb. 23, 2015 — Breckenridge Ski Resort is excited to announce the lineup for the Bud Light Free Concert Series as part of its annual Breck Spring Fever Festival, March 20-April 19, 2015. The four concerts will include big-name, national acts Third Eye Blind, Eric Paslay, American Authors, and The Infamous Stringdusters.
 
Breck’s Spring Fever Festival, the largest spring skiing party in the Rocky Mountain region, begins the weekend of March 20 with the GoPro Big Mountain Challenge. The fun continues through closing day with a series of signature events including competitions and kids’ events in addition to the free concerts.

All concerts are FREE and will take place from 2-5 p.m. on a specially-constructed stage in the Peak 8 base area, just outside One Ski Hill Place, a RockResort.

FULL LINEUP FOR 2015 BRECK SPRING FEVER BUD LIGHT CONCERT SERIES:
April 11-Third Eye Blind

Third Eye Blind over the last few years has developed a proud story of a band that clearly feels alive in live performance. The intensity of 3EB's fans attests to the energy this group creates. 3EB shows are about taking a moment to sing loud and remember you're alive.  And it's a sight to see from the stage or the audience. The band has been jamming in advance of recording their new album, so this tour will see a band at its most confident in its efforts to discover new ways every night to surprise and transcend.

April 12 - Eric Paslay
Eric Paslay is a charismatic performer and powerful vocalist who knows how to connect with an audience. His singles “Friday Night” and “Song About A Girl” were chart-topping hits and his current single “She Don’t Love You” is steadily climbing while gaining massive critical acclaim. Not only an artist, he’s a sought after songwriter, crafting No. 1 singles for Jake Owen, Rascal Flatts, Love & Theft and Eli Young Band. Paslay’s musical talents are best showcased during his live performances, where he sings his songs, those he’s written and commands the stage with one of the most remarkable voices in country music.

April 18 - American Authors
Self-described "laid-back dudes," American Authors is comprised of Zac Barnett (vocals), James Adam Shelley (guitar/banjo), Dave Rublin (bass), and Matt Sanchez (drums). Together they hail from the four corners of the country, each bringing their own influences and experiences to the writing table to create pop-flavored alt rock sprinkled with four-part harmonies, spirited lyrics, and contagious optimism.

April 19 – The Infamous Stringdusters
The Infamous Stringdusters have proven they can both mine the past and look forward to the unknown, and their new album is a touchstone for a group of tightly bonded musicians completely comfortable with each other and their collective identity. Perhaps the sentiment is best summarized through five joined voices in the mountaintop gospel-hued title track: “If its worry you’ve been feeling over things you can’t control, it’s time to let it go.”
 
“We’re extremely excited to bring our guests another fantastic lineup of live, national acts to celebrate the end of the ski season this year,” said Phill Metz, Breck’s director of marketing. We are thrilled about the great mix of bands that we’re bringing in, which for the first time ever includes a country headliner. This gives all our guests another great reason to visit one more time before the end of the season.”

  • The Bud Light Concert Series, with national acts performing live on April 11, 12, 18 and 19 on a specially-constructed stage on the mountain, at the Peak 8 base
