On Labor Day weekend every year, a special three-day event takes place in Aspen, Colorado. The Jazz Aspen Labor Day Festival, like many Aspen events, attracts the elite, the high-class, and the jet set from around the world. This event is one which is highly anticipated by local jet setters and distant travelers alike, all of whom relish the mix of the best of Aspen – the laid back atmosphere, during which you wear your jeans and cowboy boots, and enjoy the mountains, sunshine, and the great outdoors – with the best luxuries that being a jet setter has to offer – social activities, fantastic music, VIP service and attention, and exquisite food.
The festival takes place in the open air at Snowmass Town Park, with a stunning view of the Elk Mountain Range in the background. Starting Friday evening and continuing through Sunday, a total of 11 shows will be put on by various popular, R&B, rock, funk, blues, world, and soul music artists. Friday’s line-up consists of Thievery Corporation, Paper Diamond, and Girl Talk. On Saturday Ryan Bingham and the Dead Horses, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Nit Grit, and Steely Dan will perform. And Sunday will feature Fitz and the Tantrums, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Porter Robinson, and the Zac Brown Band. For directions to the festival site, visit Jazzaspensnowmass.org here.
The website only gets you to the festival from nearby. But if you need a flight into town, the best option is to charter a private jet. Located right here in Aspen, we at evoJets Charter have the perfect opportunity to provide you with the best possibly situated transportation and travel assistance for your visit. We can also help you select the right private charter jet for your travel needs. For smaller parties of 4 to 7 passengers, a light jet would be perfect. Many private travelers in the Aspen area have a preference for the Hawker 400XP, Learjet 35A, or even the Pilatus PC-12 turboprop. For larger parties of 8 to 10, a Gulfstream G400, Challenger 601, or Challenger 300 would be well-suited.
As you’ve surely noticed, the Jazz Aspen Labor Day Festival is a big deal, and it’s not just any old jazz festival. It is being held by Jazz Aspen Snowmass (JAS), a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1991 and now entering its 20th anniversary season. According to their site, “The mission of JAS is to present and preserve Jazz, American, and popular music through world-class festivals, performances, and education programs.” Here at evoJets, we have been fans and loyal followers of Jazz Aspen for many years. We are big supporters of their mission and have not only seen it “in action” all along, but have also witnessed the affects that it has on students and young aspiring musicians.
JAS has been recognized again and again for its matchless mix of world-class music and the beauty of its location in scenic Aspen. Its flawless warmth and welcome for both artist and audiences is also widely celebrated – the corporate and VIP tent programs are unrivaled in all live music events across the world.
