Tiësto, Phoenix & more set to perform at X Games Aspen 2014

Comments by Kelli Lynn Hargrove/

Looks like Phoenix, Matt & Kim, Axwell, and Tiesto will be holding down the stage at X Games Aspen 2014. Wagner Park will serve as the concert venue for this edition of Winter X, with tickets available for $30 — or $150 if you’re into a heated platform with food & drinks — with proceeds benefitting The V Foundation for Cancer Research. Sounds like a great time for a great cause!

“I’m a huge sports fan so it’s quite an honor to be a part of the X Games experience,” said Tiësto of his performance in Aspen. “Aspen provides such a unique setting for a DJ set and I can’t wait to party on the slopes.”

Matt and Kim’s extraordinary live revue also earned the indie dance duo the MTVu Woodie Award for “Best Live Performance”. With their high-octane show in mind, they wrote a true-to-Matt-and-Kim style album: Lightning, featuring singles “Let’s Go” and “It’s Alright.” There will be plenty to dance to and shout along with when new songs as well as familiar crowd favorites will be brought to technicolor life.

In 2013 they released their fifth album Bankrupt!.
