Spring skiing is the best. Rippable snow, sunshine on the slopes, hittin’ soft kickers. And, if the weather cooperates, you might even get a pow day. Celebrating spring is what the seventh annual Jackson Hole Rendezvous Festival is all about, April 1-2. The lineup is stacked, too, with names like Fitz and the Tantrums, The Wailers, Ben Harper, and more!
After two years off thanks to the pandemic, it’s great to see this live music festival return to Jackson Hole. Best of all, general admission is free, available on a first-come, first-served basis. If you want to secure entry before the event, VIP tickets are available here and are well worth the upgrade with complementary food and drink, private side-stage viewing access, YETI swag, and more.
The Rendezvous Festival takes its name, of course, from the mountain Jackson Hole is built on. There’s also Rendezvous Bowl, a main run off the tram, the Rendezvous Lodge… you get the idea.
The L.A.-based indie-pop group Fitz and the Tantrums, headline Friday, April 1st, along with folk singer/songwriter Brett Dennen, whose lyrical storytelling and quick guitar-based riffs fit the Jackson vibe perfectly.
Saturday, April 2nd, the Rendezvous Fest shifts to Teton Village at the base of the Jackson Hole mountain with music starting at 4 p.m., making this the ideal day to ski and ride until closing before heading straight into aprés and music. The lineup for Saturday evening is packed too, with performances from Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals, Cold War Kids, and The Wailers.
Without a doubt, Jackson, Wyoming is the place to celebrate spring this year.
