Vail, Colorado – July 15, 2013 – Hear that? This August, music, not snow, falls gently on the mountains over Vail as a variety of performances, some of them free, strike a chord with the crowds. The Vail Jazz Festival, one of the summer’s major music venues, brings an expected 50,000 listeners to the Vail Valley with concerts scheduled through Labor Day. And without missing a beat, the Antlers at Vail is offering an August Jazz lodging special for tuned-in travelers that starts August 12, with an opportunity to receive as much as 50 percent off on room rates while enjoying the summer sounds.

The 19-years-strong Vail Jazz Festival’s 2013 offerings include the Thursday evening Jazz @ Vail Square series with performances in Lionshead just steps from Antlers at Vail. Tickets for the tented venue are $20 in advance, $25 day of concert – or enjoy the music free from the patio of a nearby restaurant. For more free jazz, visit Jazz @ the Vail Farmers’ Market on Sundays, noon – 3 p.m. The festival’s summer schedule wraps up back in Lionshead with the annual Labor Day Weekend Vail Jazz Party, featuring eight sessions of music from Thursday, August 29 – Monday, September 2, plus an opening night cocktail party and Saturday dinner with the artists. Jazz Party concert tickets start from $55; the all-inclusive weekend Patron Pass is $385.

Additional August concert series in Vail include the free Bud Light Hot Summer Nights series, sponsored by the Vail Valley Foundation. Have a picnic on the grass for the 6:30 performances ranging from rock to country, bluegrass to funk, at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater, with concerts scheduled August 13, 20 and 27. For music with a high-altitude view, try the Friday Afternoon Club Concerts at Eagles Nest at the top of the Eagle Bahn Gondola, free with the price of the gondola ride (or completely free for EPIC pass holders), Fridays through August 30.

The Antlers at Vail’s August Jazz lodging special is offering 10 percent off for a one-night stay, 20 percent off for a two-night stay, 30 percent off for a three-night stay, 40 percent off for a four-night stay, and 50 percent off for five nights or longer, with the 50-percent-off rate bringing studio rates down to $120/night. The special rates are available August 12 – 31. Just mention “August Jazz” when booking a room.
