Matisyahu (2:00p.m.) – This year’s Closing Day at Breck will be like no other, as Matisyahu helps send off ski season in style with a free concert on the snow!

His hit single “King Without a Crown” launched him to stardom and was a Top 40 hit. He has been named Top Reggae Artist by Billboard and continues to produce inspirational hits that also contain deep meaning.
