“We’re fired up about this lineup for Mountains of Music, and also to offer these concerts at very reasonable ticket prices,” said Event Director Dave Dressman. “For Dispatch and Andy Thorn, it’s a return to our beautiful Amphitheater, where they no doubt have fond memories of absolutely amazing shows. For Xavier Rudd, this marks his 3rd appearance at the Mountain Games, however, he has never played at The Amp as both of his prior shows took place in Vail Village. We can’t wait to see their return, and to welcome new acts to come play what we hope will be very memorable shows in the unmatched environment and positive vibes of the GoPro Mountain Games.”

The Amp will kick things off June 6 with Australian singer and songwriter Xavier Rudd and opener Mike Love. June 7 features high-energy music festival favorites and co-headliners Lotusand Daniel Donato’s Cosmic Country. On June 8, 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 Dispatch in 2024.
