Welp, that paycheck's gone. Easy come, easy go.
Normally, we gauge the beginning of festival season as when Coachella's weekends come to fruition in April, but now there's a new gathering trying to squeeze the time frame even earlier. It's called Minus Zero, and it's coming to "Denver" (or, more specifically, Winter Park, CO) Apr 2-3 — and compiling a slew of baller acts to boot.
Per a recent press release from the festival:
MINUS ZERO FESTIVAL — the multi-day winter sports and electronic music festival that successfully launched in 2015 with Paul Oakenfold hailing it an "amazing concept and truly epic lineup of talent and entertainment" — has announced it will expand to three national resorts this year: Winter Park Resort in Denver, CO April 2 and 3, Stratton Mountain Resort in South Londonderry, VT April 9 and 10 and Mountain High Resort in Wrightwood, CA December 10 and 11.
MINUS ZERO's 2016 kickoff in Colorado will feature headlining sets from Diplo and Kaskade and over 15 other DJs across two stages, including Lunice, Manufactured Superstars, Illenium, Bass Physics, DJ Shift and local support acts (see day-by-day artist lineups below). All ski lifts and slopes at Winter Park Resort — an all inclusive site featuring lodging and hotel accommodations — will be open and festival attendees are encouraged to wear their ski/snowboard gear. The festival has partnered with Las Vegas-based entertainment firm, Silent Partner Entertainment Group, for all booking and marketing needs and with BETA Nightclub to help promote the event locally. Tickets for Denver go on sale Thursday (2/11) at 10:00 a.m. PST at MinusZeroFestival.com, starting at $95 for a day pass or $175 for both days. Lift passes and VIP options are also available. As a thank you to their customers Minus ZERO has ZERO service fees. Ticket prices are all inclusive and will not have any additional fees. MINUS ZERO FESTIVAL will run from 11:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. daily and is open to those 18 and over.
VIP areas will include unique outdoor amenities and after parties with packages that include unlimited access to ski lifts. The picturesque backdrop at each one of these resorts will provide the perfect setting for this magnificent event. Fans and sports enthusiasts alike are encouraged to plan ahead so they are able to enjoy not only the wide variety of music, but also the incredible sporting facilities these world renowned and first class resorts are known for.
And here we thought we'd be able to save up money for the summer. Easy come, easy go …
