Paragliding World Cup – PWC

Paragliding World Cup – PWC

August 18 – 25

Over a hundred of the world’s best paragliding pilots will compete in Sun Valley this summer as part of the 2012 Paragliding World Cup. The Sun Valley event will be the 5th competition of the 2012 circuit season.

The skies over Sun Valley will be filled with colorful paragliding wings as pilots maneuver and race to check points and eventually a daily finish line.  The summit of Bald Mountain, the top of the Sun Valley Resort, will be the starting point each day. The flying course and finish line/goal will change daily due to wind and weather conditions.  Course lengths of anywhere from 25 to over a hundred miles is expected.  Take the River Run gondola up the mountain to witness the action at the launch site as pilots take to the skies. Or better yet, contact Fly Sun Valley to reserve a tandem paragliding flight and join the competitors in the air!

MASSV Music & Arts Showcase Sun Valley

MASSV Music & Arts Showcase Sun Valley

July 13–14

 

MASSV Music and Arts Showcase Sun Valley makes its debut this summer during a 2 day festival.

When art, music and the majestic scenery of Sun Valley come together —it becomes MASSV. The latest and most exciting event to happen this summer in Sun Valley will be the inaugural MASSV Music and Arts Showcase this summer, July 13-14. The two-day music and arts festival in downtown Ketchum will take place at the Simplot lot, future home of the Sun Valley Center for the Arts, across from the Ketchum Post Office.

This historic event will feature the most cutting-edge music touring acts in the nation today including the eclectic and energizing creative rock, funk, and electronica sounds ofGhostland Observatory, the hot vibes of the acoustic and electronica combination sounds and dance performance of Beats Antique and the mixing mania of the dubstep group theAdventure Club.

MASSV is for everyone, and is also pleased to feature the soulful and profound music of Black Joe Lewis and The Honeybears. Their James Brown influence will have everyone on their feet as well as the hip-hop super tunes of Brother Ali. Other acts to fill out the MASSV festival’s line-up will include reggae, rock ‘n’ roll and Americana music featuring Gift of Gab of Blackalicous, Proper Motion, Stylust Beats, Winstrong, Boombox and B-Side Players. MASSV will also present Boise’s Equaleyes and Idaho and Wood River Valley’s acclaimed rocker trio Finn Riggins.

Invoking the spirit Mardi Gras and garnering some inspiration from Bonnaroo, MASSV encourages festival goers of all ages to enjoy the party with costumes and art projects. Expect local “tweener” acts of art and music too. The summer fun and super-charged atmosphere will include jugglers, stilt walkers, break dancers, hula hoppers, African drummers, scratch DJs and many other entertainers all throughout the two-day event. Enjoy an art car parade, a torch lit drum march from Simplot lot to Main Street in Ketchum after the main stage closes each night where a street party will ensue with laser light shows and more to continue the MASSV groove.

Gates will open on Friday, July 13, at 2 p.m. The show will start at 4 p.m. and end at 11 p.m. A Ketchum street party will take place from 11 p.m. to 2 a.m. On Saturday, July 14, gates open at 12 p.m. and the show will take place from 2 to 11:30 p.m. followed by a Ketchum street party from 11:30 p.m. to 2 a.m.

An online advanced pass for $59.99 will be available following an early bird sell out. After July 7, the weekend pass will be $69.99 and individual passes will be $45.
