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.

Early Bird tickets will go on sale Wednesday, May 16. A weekend pass is $49.99 and individual day passes are $39.99. These passes are available for a limited time only. 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.
