Dark Star Orchestra

Performing to critical acclaim for over 25 years and over 3100 shows, Dark Star Orchestra continues the Grateful Dead live concert experience. Their shows are built off the Dead’s extensive catalog and the talent of these seven fine musicians. On any given night, the band will perform a show based on a set list from the Grateful Dead’s 30 years of extensive touring or use their catalog to program a unique set list for the show. This allows fans both young and old to share in the experience. By recreating set lists from the past, and by developing their own sets of Dead songs, Dark Star Orchestra offers a continually evolving artistic outlet within this musical canon. Honoring both the band and the fans, Dark Star Orchestra’s members seek out the unique style and sound of each era while simultaneously offering their own informed improvisations.

Dark Star Orchestra offers much more than the sound of the Grateful Dead, they truly encapsulate the energy and the experience. It’s about a sense of familiarity. It’s about a feeling that grabs listeners and takes over. It’s about that contagious energy…in short, it’s about the complete experience and consistent quality show that the fan receives when attending a Dark Star Orchestra show.

Trampled by Turtles

 Trampled by Turtles are from Duluth, Minnesota, where frontman Dave Simonett initially formed the group as a side project in 2003. At the time, Simonett had lost most of his music gear, thanks to a group of enterprising car thieves who’d ransacked his vehicle while he played a show with his previous band. Left with nothing more than an acoustic guitar, he began piecing together a new band, this time taking inspiration from bluegrass, folk, and other genres that didn’t rely on amplification. Simonett hadn’t played any bluegrass music before, and he filled his lineup with other newcomers to the genre, including fiddler Ryan Young (who’d previously played drums in a speed metal act) and bassist Tim Saxhaug. Along with mandolinist Erik Berry and banjo player Dave Carroll, the group began carving out a fast, frenetic sound that owed as much to rock & roll as bluegrass.

The Motet

Since 1998, The Motet has inspired the world with their unique style of dance music. Dave Watts (drums), Joey Porter (key), Garrett Sayers (bass), Drew Sayers (keys & saxophone), and Ryan Jalbert (guitar) have been delighting fans in the Tetons since its inception. Over the course of nine full-length albums, they’ve traversed the lines between funk, soul, jazz, and rock and built a diehard audience in the process. They’ve headlined Red Rocks Amphitheatre six times and sold out countless legendary venues coast-to-coast. In addition to racking up nearly 20 million total streams and views, they’ve also garnered widespread acclaim from numerous publications including Relix, Glide Magazine, and AXS.  The band has also graced the stages of festivals such as Bonnaroo, Bottlerock, Electric Forest, Bumbershoot, Summer Camp, and High Sierra.

The String Cheese Incident

The String Cheese Incident (SCI) is an American jam band from Crested Butte and Telluride, Colorado, formed in 1993. The band is composed of Michael Kang (acoustic/electric mandolin, electric guitar, and violin), Michael Travis (drums and percussion), Bill Nershi (acoustic guitar, lap steel guitar, and electric slide guitar), Kyle Hollingsworth (piano, organ, Rhodes, and accordion), and Keith Moseley (bass guitar), and, since 2004, Jason Hann (auxiliary percussion). Their music has elements of bluegrass, as well as rock, electronica, calypso, country, funk, jazz, Latin, progressive rock, reggae, and psychedelia. All members write original compositions and sing. Their annual events such as Electric Forest and Hulaween, and holiday shows such as New Year’s Eve, have helped redefine the concert experience and have garnered the band a reputation as live music vibe innovators.


Do I need to purchase a gondola ticket to access the concert?

No. Your ticket includes a free unlimited gondola pass for the evening. Scenic gondola tickets are normally $30 for a round trip ticket, and are included as part of your concert experience. 

Can I hike up to the concert?

Yes. You are welcome to hike up to or down from the concert. Tickets are required to access the concert venue so hikers without a ticket will not be permitted to enter the venue. After the concert, the download wait time for the gondola may exceed 1 hour. If you wish to hike down, please bring a headlamp and wear sturdy hiking shoes. Food, drink, and music will be available after the concert ends to allow guests to linger comfortably and enjoy the evening and views while others download the gondola.  Security will be monitoring hikers and access to the venue.

Can I ride the gondola down during the concert?

Yes. Your ticket to the concert will allow you to go up and down the gondola during the concert. 

May I bring drinks for the evening?

 No. Outside alcohol is not permitted in the concert venue. Bags will be searched prior to loading the gondola and upon entrance to the concert venue.  Water bottles are ok, but will be checked for alcohol if they are reusable. 

May I bring food for the evening?

Yes. Food will be available within the venue and guests are welcome to bring their own food.

What is available to eat and drink in the concert venue?

Craft beer, craft cider, hard seltzers, and mixed drinks will be available from Roadhouse Brewing, Melvin Brewing, High Point Cider, and Wyoming Whiskey as well as wine.  Food vendors will be on hand with dinner options, snacks, water, and non-alcoholic beverages. IDs will be required for the purchase of alcohol. Please come prepared.

Can I bring camp chairs or a blanket to sit on?

Yes. Camp chairs and blankets are allowed and encouraged. The venue is natural this summer so please plan accordingly to be comfortable.  The ground is still rocky and grass has yet to grow so please wear comfortable shoes. 

What happens in the event of weather?

Snow King Mountain Concert Venue is an outdoor venue, and shows typically occur in all elements of Wyoming weather. Be prepared for adverse weather conditions, including total exposure to the sun, strong wind, and even severe rain or snow. It is always wise to dress in layers, have a poncho on hand, and wear sunscreen.


 In the event of lightning, the concert may be paused when lightning is approaching from a distance, and guests may be asked to download the gondola until the lightning passes.  


The gondola may shut temporarily if lightning is directly on top of the mountain and resume once it has passed.  


Instructions will be given on the PA in the event of a lightning storm.  


The Panorama House, Observatory, and Sumit Restaurant buildings are under construction but will be available for shelter in the event of lightning.


Keep your ticket stub for re-entry once the all-clear is issued.

There are no refunds due to inclement weather.


Can I bring my kids?

 Yes. This is an all ages, family-friendly event. Tickets are the same price for adults as well as kids of all ages and include scenic gondola access.  Please recognize that download times for the gondola at the conclusion of the event may take some time so plan accordingly or consider leaving a bit early if you need to get down before the sun sets.

What is included in the VIP ticket?

VIP tickets include priority loading and downloading on the gondola and access to a stage side VIP zone with drinks, food, tents, tables and chairs.  The VIP bar will be open for complimentary beer, wine, soft drinks and limited appetizers for VIP ticket holders only.  Free drink service will be available from 4:30–8pm.

Are bathrooms available at the top?

 Yes. Porta Potties and hand-washing stations will be available.

What is the plan for future concerts at the summit?

 If this season is a success, we plan to continually improve the venue and make it one of the most spectacular locations to watch a concert in the region.  Due to ongoing construction of the Snow King Planetarium and Observatory as well as the Summit Restaurant, this summer the venue will still be dirt.  In future years we expect to have a grass covered hillside, access to the new restaurant, restrooms, running water, and access to the observatory and planetarium as part of the concert venue.

What happens if I buy tickets and my plans change?

All ticket sales are final. No refunds or exchanges will be allowed.

What time can I arrive?

The venue will open at 4:30pm.

Can I bring my pet?

No, sorry. 

Will there be security?

To ensure guest’s safety, private security officers will be on-site as well as Teton County Sheriff’s officers. All guests and bags/purses will be searched prior to loading the gondola.  People caught attempting to sneak into the venue will be prosecuted.
