Lil Wayne, Chainsmokers, Kygo to headline X Games Aspen

Staff report

X Games Aspen will host musical performances by Lil Wayne, Louis the Child, The Chainsmokers and Kygo alongside the on-snow action at Buttermilk Ski Area in January.

Lil Wayne, the New Orleans-bred hip-hop superstar whose "Tha Carter V" is expected to be released later this year, will open the concert series Friday, Jan. 26, at the 6,000-capacity outdoor music venue.

Saturday features a return headlining performance from the popular EDM duo The Chainsmokers, who sold out X Games in 2017 and have become Aspen regulars (including a surprise show at Belly Up Aspen in June). Their set will be preceded by an early-evening performance from the Chicago-based DJ duo Louis the Child.

The concerts will close Sunday with the innovative Norweigan producer and songwriter Kygo, returning to the X Games closing slot he filled in 2016.

ESPN announced the lineup Thursday morning. Tickets, starting at $20, are on-sale now at xgames.com. The festival's Early Bird prices also include a $120 all-music general admission ticket. Prices will go up Dec. 3. Premium ticket options include the Platinum Pass and Diamond Club passes, which grant access to preferred, heated viewing area, food drink and athlete autograph sessions.

X Games has also partnered with Aspen Skiing Co. on a new ticket option called College X Pass + Music. Available for ticket-buyers with a valid student ID, the $199 pass grants admission to all four concerts and a two-day lift ticket valid at any of Aspen's four mountains.
