Concerts are either getting canceled or postponed around the state over COVID-19, including many Red Rocks Amphitheatre shows. While the organizers at Jazz Aspen Snowmass already postponed their JAS June Experience, they also just decided to reschedule the JAS Labor Day Experience until 2021.
All the artists slated to perform over Labor Weekend, including Stevie Nicks, Eric Church, Kings of Leon and Maren Morris, have committed to performing September 3 to 5, 2021. Additional acts will be announced at a later date.
“This was not the 30th Anniversary celebration we envisioned," said JAS president Jim Horowitz in a statement, "but the health and safety of the JAS artists, staff and audiences dictated that we stand with our fellow arts organizations in Aspen and beyond in taking this action. We look forward to planning to celebrate our 30th Season with the same great artists and more in 2021."
JAS Labor Day Experience general admission ticket holders will have three options: transferring their tickets to the 2021 event and receiving a JAS30 Survive & Thrive pass; turning the value of their ticket into a donation to JAS’s mission-driven programming; or receiving a refund for the tickets. All ticket buyers will receive an email this week with instructions on how to move forward.
