The Snow Daze event offers a super charged mix of non-stop music, on-snow events, Demo Daze and a wide variety of après and after-dark parties.

“We’re thrilled to host Colorado blues rockers Big Head Todd and the Monsters as Vail Snow Daze’s opening musical performance,” said James Deighan of Highline Sports & Entertainment, which produces the festival. “Vail hasn’t seen Big Head Todd and the Monsters in a public show since 2001, making their return a must-see concert.”

Boulder-born band Big Head Todd and the Monsters will take center stage at Vail’s Dobson Arena Thursday at 7:00 p.m. With seven studio albums and among The Indie 100’s “Performing Songwriter’s 100 Most Influential Independent Artists of the Past 15 Years” list released in June 2008, Big Head Todd and the Monsters are undoubtedly an iconic musical performing group, especially here in Colorado where they regularly sell out at Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
