Killington Resort in Vermont, Eastern North America’s largest ski and snowboard destination and part of POWDR, announced the entertainment program for the 2022 Cup. The return of the Audi FIS Ski World Cup takes place November 25-27, bringing together the world’s fastest technical alpine skiers with live music, events, camaraderie and more.

Killington will host concerts on the Bud Light Seltzer stage throughout the weekend featuring Michael Franti, Noah Kahan, Stephen Kellogg and DJ Angie Vee. DJ Angie Vee will kick off Friday’s entertainment, which will include athlete bib presentations and fireworks. Southern California native DJ Angie Vee has branded herself the go-to girl for clubs across the US. She has graced the pages of People Magazine with her own published playlist and regularly plays at the biggest nightclubs in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, and New York City.

Between runs on Saturday, enjoy the indie folk tunes of singer, songwriter and author Stephen Kellogg, an American singer and songwriter who has released 17 albums and performed more than 2,000 concerts in 21 countries. He received the Armed Forces Entertainer of the Year Award, his work was nominated for a Grammy and gave a TEDx Talk. Planet Bluegrass describes him as “a superb songwriter with a poet’s gift for images”. He lives in New England with his wife, four daughters and their cat Holly.

After Saturday’s races conclude, Noah Kahan of Strafford, Vermont will enter the Bud Light Seltzer stage. With more than 60 million worldwide streams of his new song “Stick Season,” which debuted at #1 on Spotify’s Viral Songs Chart, Kahan has sold out venues on his tour across the country. With an upbeat energy that combines unfiltered lyrics, fluttering guitar melodies and inviting vocals, Kahan’s music has an unparalleled appeal that’s sure to please audiences.

On Sunday, Michael Franti will make his first appearance at Killington since the 2018 Killington Cup between rounds. He is a globally recognized musician, activist, hotel owner (Soulshine Bali) and award-winning filmmaker revered for his energetic live shows, inspirational music, dedication to health and well-being, global philanthropic endeavors and the power of optimism. During his decade-long career, Franti has had three Billboard No. 1 hits with triumphantly hopeful hits like “Sound of Sunshine,” “Say Hey (I Love You)” and “I Got You,” as well as six Top 30 Hot AC singles, 10 Top 25 AAA singles, and three Billboard Top 5 Rock Albums. Michael Franti + Spearhead’s 12th studio album, Follow Your Heart, was released in June 2022 and debuted at #2 on the iTunes pop chart behind Harry Styles.

“The Killington Cup is much more than a race, it’s also one of the biggest parties of the year. With great music throughout the weekend, spanning genres from folk to hip-hop, this year’s line-up is sure to keep fans entertained between heart-pounding runs around the course.”

– Killington President and General Manager Mike Solimano
