Sports are cool, but even your favorite athletes use music to compete at their best. You need a motivational beat you pump you up and something euphoric to celebrate with when you reach the finish line. It’s also more fun for spectators when there’s extra excitement in the air, which is why the X Games always books some big musical talent alongside its snowy showdowns.
In 2019, the X Games will welcome performances by Lil Wayne, The Chainsmokers, Kygo and Louis The Child. Artists are spread across three days, keeping the momentum up between bouts on the Superpipe and all that. The X Games hits Aspen, Colorado, Thursday to Sunday, Jan. 24 to 27, 2019, though musical performances begin Friday, Jan. 25. Lil Wayne leads the ceremonies, while The Chainsmokers and Louis The Child double headline Saturday, Jan. 26, and Kygo closes the show on Sunday, Jan. 27.
There are a variety of ticket packages available, while tickets to the concerts start at $30. Check the promo vide below and visit the X Games website for more details and information.
