Beginning next month in Aspen, Colo., X Games fans will have a new event to get hyped for: music.
Though performances from top artists have often been part of the X Games experience, 2013 marks the debut of a special concert series dedicated to showcasing the best talent in each of the five countries set to be host to the events this coming year: the United States, France, Brazil, Spain and Germany.
Kicking things off during X Games Aspen are headlining acts Calvin Harris and Major Lazer. Major Lazer -- a project by DJs/producers Diplo and Jillionaire as well as Walshy Fire -- and Harris are both well known in the electronic dance-music scene, drawing huge crowds at music festivals across the planet and collaborating with the likes of Beyoncé, No Doubt, Snoop Lion, Rihanna, Dizzee Rascal and Ke$ha.
