SolShine Music Festival – Winter Park, CO

winter park resort American music festWinter Park Resort – SolShine Music Fest

The American Music Festival is making a return to Winter Park, Colorado, now called the Winter Park Solshine Music Festival.  This may be in name only but it sure does bring back great memories of the American Music Fest held on the slopes of Winter Park Resort from the mid 19190′s to the early 2000′s.  The AMF brought to Colorado some of the biggest and best music acts of the day and still some of the best know artists around .  Check out the AMF concert poster to the right and see Widespread Panic, Brian Setzer and Ani DiFranco…. Wow, I wish we could get these artists back to Winter Park now!

The new SolShine Music Festival will be held in the Town of Winter Park at the Hideaway Park amphitheater and at Cooper Creek Square.  The dates are July 16th and 17th, the weekend before the Winter Park Jazz Festival, another great week here in Winter Park for some live music.

  1. When was the last AMF in Winter Park? I cannot find any info on the web. I remember attending in 1998 (?) but was hoping to find previous lineups. Is there a website?

  2. 1998 may have been the last year, or maybe 1999. Construction on Zephyr Mountain Lodge began sometime in 1999 so you may have been at the very last AMF at Winter Park Resort. Thsi year will be a tad smaller and in the town of Winter Park. We really wish they would bring back the festival as it was!

  3. The new American Music FEstival Lineup has been announced. It is also not being called the American Music Festival, it is now the Winter Park SolShinne Musis Festival. Here is the lineup:
