WSSF concert lineup revealed 

Keep your pants on party people, the Telus World Ski and Snowboard Festival has just released their lineup for the DKNY Jeans free outdoor concert series.

The bill includes award-winning hip hop supergroup Swollen Members, Swedish rockers The Soundtrack Of Our Lives, the explosive quartet I Mother Earth, the soulful Sweatshop Union, rising mic star Kazzer, and the fast and furious Treble Charger.
