Live Music in the Mountains
If you’ve missed live music like we’ve missed live music, you’ll be happy to hear that the summer is looking up, as live music works its way back into the Park City scene this summer.
Live summer concerts have been a staple of cool mountain evenings in Park City for as long as…well, a long time! Last summer as event after event was canceled, independent artists and small venues struggled to keep the music alive and healthy enough to make a comeback. With some hard work, community support, and pure perseverance, those artists, venues, and events are planning to bring the hills, and town, and Park City in general, alive with music. Take a look at what’s on tap so far for this summer’s live music schedule.
Mountain Town Music “exists to produce, foster, and support live music which enhances the cultural experience for Park City and Summit County residents and visitors.” In a typical year, they produce nearly 400 free musical performances that reach and inspire over 350,000 people. As a non-profit Mountain Music relies on community involvement and support, so be sure to drop a couple of bucks into the jar at the end of each performance to keep the vibe going. Mountain Town Music is excited to be back and has a growing calendar of free live events that can be found on their SHOW calendar. Check back often for changes and additions to the lineup.
Deer Valley Music Festival in partnership with the Utah Symphony produces live events at Snow Park Amphitheater. With a yearly mix of headliners and classics, nothing beats a night under the stars singing along the beat and maybe even getting a bit of your groove on. Seating is hillside with either general admission on the lawn or reserved in the assigned lawn chair section. Come early and bring a picnic, enjoy a glass of wine, and enjoy the music. Check out the full summer lineup and buy tickets here.
Park City Institute’s Big Stars Bright Nights are returning to the Eccles Center in Park City with its spring and summer music lineup. On tap are music artists including Gretchen Wilson,
Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Marty Stuart, and more. Shows will be confirmed 30 days in advance pending state and federal health and safety guidelines. The Park City Institute is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to bringing world-class performances and innovative ideas to the community and as an important organization to the community, we hope you’ll take a look at their schedule often and support the shows and the work they do in the community.
More Live Music in and around town. If you’re not able to get to a scheduled event you can still find great live music during your stay in Park City. You're guaranteed to find great live music on the fly at any one of these great Park City bars and restaurants: The Spur Bar& Grill, O.P Rockwell, Prime Steak House, and Piano Bar, The Corner Store, or Silver Star Café. Music is such an integral part of Park City’s community that you’ll even find live music happening at the Silly Market on Main Street, Sundays in the summer.
