Macklemore & Ryan Lewis will kick off the Burton US Open free concert series on Friday, March 1, following the slopestyle finals at Golden Peak. Known for their electrifying live performances, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ hit single “Thrift Shop” is currently number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the third straight week.

On Saturday, March 2nd, Santigold will take to the stage for a free show following the halfpipe finals. With two critically acclaimed albums to her name, Santigold also created the song "Girls," which is the lead single for the album Girls Soundtrack, Vol. 1: Music from the HBO Original Series.

After the Santigold show, the good times continue with the official Burton US Open closing party featuring DJs Skratch Bastid and Cosmo Baker. As one of Canada’s most treasured DJs, Skratch Bastid is a turntable champion and crowd favorite recognized worldwide for his beloved remixes.
