Art is a fundamental part of mountain lifestyle. It represents the environment spectators and participants live and play in every day.

The Teva Mountain Games combines artistic influence with competition. Running alongside the countless athletic competitions we foster the arts through film, photography, and random expressions of on-site art.

teva music

Music has always been a big part of the Teva Mountain Games. Each year we showcase a variety of acts free-concert-style in the heart of Vail Village at Checkpoint Charlie. Alongside the official concerts countless after parties and DJ’s rock the heart of Vail long into the night making those 8am start times the following day a little harder than they already are for many competitors.

Past concerts include Ozomatli, Government Mule, The Nappy Roots, Aceyalone, Tamarama, The Samples, Jurassic 5, Julian Marley and many more.

Check back soon for the 2011 Bud Light Mountains of Music line-up.
