SALT LAKE CITY, Utah(News4Utah) The Twilight Concert Series is back this Summer, but it’s going to look a little different. Jake Jensen from Broadway Media, and Efren Corado Garcia with the Salt Lake Arts Council Foundation Board, joined Midday to explain the changes.
Corado says this is the first year that the Arts Council Foundation will work with another entity to produce the event. They will be working with Broadway Media. This alliance has given the Arts Council Foundation the ability to put on the Twilight Concert Series this Summer, while highlighting Broadway Media’s expertise in concert production and promotion.
Residents and visitors will continue to enjoy the premiere concert series in downtown Salt Lake City at a price-point unmatched by other major, established concert series in the City.
One major change is that Twilight is moving back to the Gallivan Center. Around 7,000 attend each concert!
Without further ado, here is the lineup for this Summer’s series:
- Aug 16th: Diplo
- Aug 23rd: Robert Delong
- Aug 30th: Moon Taxi
- Sept 6th: DJ Snoopadelic (Snoop Dogg)
- Sept 13th: King Princess with Flora Cash
- It’s a really eclectic lineup with someone for everyone.
- Tickets are also on sale TODAY.
Concerts will consist of one national act and at least one local act. Local acts will be announced soon.
The concerts will be held on Thursday evenings in August and September. Cost for tickets is $10 if you buy before the event, and $15 the day of the show.
The Twilight Concert Series is one of the events that makes Salt Lake City a vibrant place. It is nationally renowned and continues to be an important part of our community. It’s accessible to everyone – which is a major priority of Mayor Biskupski(That arts and culture is accessible to everyone.)
The Arts Council understands how important it is to support our local artists. Not only is there a national act, but also always a local opener, which also gives local artists a venue to perform they may not get elsewhere.
Salt Lake Community College is the proud title sponsor once again, this year.
