After launching with smashing success in 2019, Powabunga makes its return to Vail over ‘closing weekend’ – a marquee weekend in the Vail Valley, celebrating the last hurrah of the ski season and marking the end of another great winter on the slopes. Elevating the festive spirit of the weekend, Powabunga’s concert performances at Ford Park (522 S. Frontage Road E.) kick off at 4PM each afternoon and continue until 10PM. Following, Powabunga will partner with Ski House and Desert Hearts to host official after-parties with world-class production at Dobson Arena, located in the heart of Vail Village.
New for 2020 is Powabunga’s arrival along the shores of stunning Lake Tahoe from March 20 to 22. With performances taking place in Crystal Bay alongside Tahoe Biltmore and Crystal Bay Club, fans can expect special activations at the nearby Diamond Peak Ski Resort, legendary after-parties, and more.
