Friday, March 31

Preservation Hall Jazz Band kicked it off in style by marching into town square and up to the stage, where they put on a performance that fans of any music genre would respect. ZZ Ward followed them up with her powerhouse vocals before The Revivalists closed out night 1 with an electrifying performance that further elevated the stoke for night 2. A week later, I still can't get the performance of their double platinum-selling #1 single "Wish I Knew You" out of my mind.

Saturday, April 1

It seems like an April Fool's joke, but skiers and snowboarders awoke to a 9" powder buffet that continuously refilled as it nuked an additional 13" throughout the day and night. The skiing was unparalleled and yet, the allure of free live music was enough to pull skiers to the base of the mountain for the exciting conclusion of the 2023 Rendezvous Spring Festival. SkiiTour started the night off hot with feel-good house music and the chance to win a 2024 VIP Rendezvous vacation at the SkiiTour-judged Rendezvous Costume Contest. The crowd did not disappoint.

SkiiTour was followed by Dumstaphunk, one of the funkiest bands to ever emerge from New Orleans, who played impressively well in Nature Valley gloves. After 2 hours of live music, the extensive lineup of talented acts was just getting started. Rolling Stone called Futurebirds "one of the most fascinating and captivating rock acts touring today" and they sure lived up to the praise. Elle King was next to energize the crowd with a wonderfully executed show that lived up to and surpassed all expectations for her highly-anticipated performance.

While the stage crew got ready for the night's headliner, Andrew Munz took the stage with Joe Rudd and completely switched the musical vibe as he transformed into "Your Girl Catherine" and provided a sneak peek of his upcoming musical "I Can Ski Forever: The Last Run."

At long last, after 5.5 hours of musical greatness, the Yellowstone star and Grammy & Oscar-winning artist, Ryan Bingham, took the stage sporting a beanie and ski goggles in place of his cowboy hat. This was a fitting choice given the winter storm this Texas and New Mexico-raised cowboy suddenly found himself in. He put on an inspiring performance for as long as he could, until the night had to be called due to extreme wind. As the crowd left the venue, an impressive firework show lit up the night sky. Even with Bingham's performance cut short, this spectacle in the sky provided a satisfying end to this year's festival.

We'd like to give a huge thanks to the Jackson Hole Travel & Tourism Board and Jeep for making this event possible, as well as the rest of our event sponsors: Coca-Cola, Smartwool, GORE-TEX, YETI, Sweet Protection, GoPro, Nature Valley, SCOTT Sports, Wyoming Whiskey, White Claw, Mammut, Jackson Hole Central Reservations, JH Air, Teton Village Association, Housecall Hydration, Salt Lake Express and Coombs Outdoors.
