The three-day music festival, capping Jazz Aspen’s 25th anniversary season, will run Sept. 4 to 6 at Snowmass Town Park. All three headliners will be making their debut local appearances. Jazz Aspen announced the lineup Thursday. Tickets will go on-sale Monday.
“Having one of the breakout artists of 2014-15 in Hozier added to our concert bill, as well as multi-Grammy winning rock and fashion icon Lenny Kravitz … All in all it looks like 2015 will, No Doubt, be the biggest event in JAS history across the three days,” Jazz Aspen president and CEO Jim Horowitz said in the lineup announcement.
Irish singer-songwriter Hozier will perform Friday, Sept. 4, with an opening set by Fitz and the Tantrums, who first performed at the Labor Day weekend festival in 2011.
Hozier’s “Take Me To Church,” the debut single off of his self-titled 2014 album, has achieved widespread global popularity, becoming a number-one hit in 12 countries, earning a Grammy nomination for Song of the Year, over 146 million views on YouTube and becoming Spotify’s most viral song of 2014.
No Doubt’s Saturday, Sept. 5, set is one of just five scheduled performances from the Grammy-winning band in the U.S. this year. Veteran reggae artist Jimmy Cliff will open for No Doubt at 5 p.m. in his first Jazz Aspen appearance since 2000.
No Doubt has released several multi-platinum albums (1995’s diamond-certified “Tragic Kingdom,” 2001’s “Rock Steady,” and a 2003 singles collection) and a string of chart-topping hits (“Just a Girl,” “Don’t Speak,” “Hey Baby,” and “Hella Good”). Lead singer Gwen Stefani has further emerged as a global music and fashion icon via two solo albums and multiple clothing lines.
“No Doubt is only performing a few select high profile shows at large major festivals this summer, including New Orleans [Jazz and Heritage Festival], Coachella, Bottlerock and Rock in Rio Vegas, so it’s a great honor that they agreed to join JAS for our 25th season event,” said Horowitz.
A 3 p.m. act for Saturday has yet to be announced.
Kravitz will close the festival on Sunday, Sept. 6. The multi-instrumentalist and actor, known for his elaborate stage performances and music videos, had been scheduled to play the festival in 2011 but pulled out months in advance. He won the Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance for four years in a row (1999-2002), breaking the record for most wins in that category as well as setting the record for most consecutive wins in one category by a male.
Denver-based rock band The Fray, best known for hits “Over My Head (Cable Car)” and “How to Save a Life,” will precede Kravitz in a 5 p.m. set. A third Sunday act, playing at 3 p.m., will be announced at a later date. JAS will be releasing a $184 3-Day Experience Pass for sale on Monday, March 24 at 9 a.m., while supplies last.
