“Thirty years of free live music in Snowmass is a significant milestone,” says Rose Abello, Tourism Director, Snowmass Tourism. “We are thrilled to celebrate this anniversary by further investing in ways that will enhance the Fanny Hill experience for the community. And, it will be great to host both new and returning bands on the Fanny Hill Stage. This summer’s series will certainly be one for the books.”
New this season, guests will see an improved Fanny Hill concert venue, including a new stage roof; new dedicated crusher fine pathways, aisles, and dance floor; a new entry area complete with flowers and updated branding; and new signage and logo’d fencing. Also new for this summer season are two custom branded Snowmass container bars, which replace the tented bars in the venue. In addition, the Electric Dandelions, which first debuted during the Winter 2021/2022 Snowmass Luminescence, will bring their dazzling display to the Fanny Hill hillside. These giant steel and acrylic sculptures represent dandelion flowers during the day and come to life at night as an endless firework display.
