The Snowmass Balloon Festival fills the sky with one of the highest-altitude balloon events in the country. Highlights include a specialized Kid’s Zone and the Saturday evening glow, barbeque and free concert where brightly colored balloons light up the night sky and twinkle on and off like stars.

This is one of Snowmass Village’s fastest growing events and is co-sponsored by the Denver Post. Attendance ranges from 1,000 - 3,000 people depending on the weather. Submissions from Americana, blues and bluegrass artists are being accepted for consideration to perform live at the event. There is one slot available. Selected artist will be provided with $500-$1,000, plus food and lodging.

The festival takes place in beautiful Snowmass Village, CO September 17-20, 2009 with the live music being part of the September 13 events. Since it is a family event, all artists who perform must abstain from using profanity and/or explicit content if selected. No backline is provided. This is a unique opportunity for artists to perform at one of the country’s premier ballooning festivals.
