Never before have all of these sports come together in such an historic location.
In conjunction with all the events there are a variety of additional entertainment highlights.
Kicking off the 2019 World Champs musical offering are The Main Squeeze following Opening Ceremonies and the Big Air final on Feburary 2. From their origins as a jam/party band in Indiana, The Main Squeeze have been weaving the veins of rock, funk, blues, and R&B into modern song stylings. Now LA-based and with three albums under their belt (last one being 2017’s Without A Sound), festival appearances from KABOO to Bonnaroo, and features from Billboard and Rolling Stone, The Main Squeeze have a rich touring history including opening slots for The Roots, Jane’s Addiction, D.R.A.M., Mac Miller, Aloe Blacc, and Umphrey’s McGee, The Main Squeeze are launching into a new musical orbit with plans for a fourth LP in 2019.
To get you geared up for the Snowboard Big Air Final on Tuesday, February 5th, Joe Hertler and The Rainbow Seekers who are not to be missed. In their own words, the band “will make a sprightly young groove doctor out of anyone. With spectacular energy pulsating from every member of the band, the Rainbow Seekers could illuminate the very chambers of Heaven. Lead singer Joe Hertler splashes through lyrical puddles of golden rain, leaving his audience wearing flowery crowns and bubbling smiles. A ride on the Rainbow will take you across the mountains of Motown, through the fjords of folk, over the archipelagos of Americana, and-at last-into a funky firth, where only the fiercest of friendships can be found.”
Hip hop superstar Lupe Fiasco will be the headline musical act at the closing ceremonies on Sunday February 10, on Park City’s Historic Main Street, bringing to a close the largest winter sports event to take place in Utah since the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.
