 VAIL, Colo.óFebruary 18, 2008óSpring Back to Vail, the iconic, high-energy, end-of-season bash done Vail-style, returns April 7-13, 2008 with headlining concerts from Ben Harper and Govít Mule.  Govít Mule will appear at the Dobson Arena on Thursday, April 10, 2008 and Ben Harper will play an outdoor concert in Ford Park on Saturday, April 12, 2008.  With more snow on the mountain than ever before in Vailís history, Spring Back to Vail 2008 is poised to be the best yet.

 

ďThe concert lineup this year is amazing,Ē said James Deighan, Senior Vice President of Highline Sports & Entertainment, the eventís producers.  ďBoth Ben Harper and Govít Mule are known for their spectacular live shows.  Having artists like these for Spring Back to Vail is what makes this the best spring bash in the country.Ē 

 

With 11 albums and two Grammy awards to his name, Ben Harper is the caliber of musician that has become a rarity in a world full of teen-pop sensations.  Harper, backed by his band The Innocent Criminals, specializes in a socially conscious blend of blues, funk, reggae, R&B and folk that has earned him a legion of die-hard fans. 

 

Govít Mule, formed in 1994 as a side project of the Allman Brothers Band, is a southern-rock-style jam band that has become a staple at music festivals across the country.  Like many jam bands, Govít Mule did not build its broad fan base through radio play, but through extensive touring and great stage presence.  With live shows that are known for big sound and impressive improvisations, Govít Mule has earned the respect of their fans and musicians alike.
