Let’s rock: the 2021 GoPro Mountains of Music

Posted by: Tom Boyd

It’s hard to beat early June in the Rocky Mountains. The rivers are roaring, the flowers are blossoming, and anything green is practically exploding upward toward ample sunshine.

In 2021, mountain communities around the world will be mimicking nature as we emerge from the metaphorical winter of the pandemic.

We don’t know exactly how far along we’ll be in that process, but we know one thing: the GoPro Mountains of Music will be back at the ~2,600-capacity Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater in Vail June 10-13. It’s not likely the venue will be able to host at 100% capacity, but it IS probable that a small, socially-distanced audience will be welcomed to the venue (for what we expect to be a big band).

The idea of live concerts have us singing the immortal words of Twisted Sister: WE WANNA ROCK!

And we will. But what, exactly, will we be rocking to, and how?

Who, what, and when?

The nonprofit Vail Valley Foundation is exploring options with several leading musical artists, but it’s too early to announce the lineup at The Amp at the 2021 GoPro Mountains of Music.

We expect to announce sometime in April.

We also know we will be livestreaming the music via a one-of-a-kind, GoPro-camera-powered livestream experience, so that no matter where you are, you can take part in the GoPro Mountain Games. We simply don’t yet know what our in-person capacity limits will be at the Ford Amphitheater. It will likely depend on where things stand on the Colorado COVID-19 dashboard come June.

So, whether it’s in-person or over the internets via an all-GoPro camera livestream, we look forward to sharing more with you about the 2021 GoPro Mountains of Music this spring.
