If you’re anything like us, you’ve missed listening to some of your favorite performers sending out all those good vibrations. Concerts are back in full swing this year, and Park City’s warm summer nights provide the perfect setting to take in some live music in the open air. Check out these local events where you can get your groove on.

Concerts at Deer Valley’s Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater are a seasonal highlight. 

Canyons Village Summer Concert Series

The free weekly concerts at Canyons Village are always a rockin’ good time. Various musical acts will take the stage from June 25 to August 27 on select Thursday and Saturday nights, beginning at 5:30 p.m. Picnic baskets and blankets are welcome; dogs and outside booze are not.

Grand Valley Bank Community Concert Series

Beginning in June, Mountain Town Music and Grand Valley Bank offer a free Wednesday night concert series at Deer Valley’s Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Musical acts range from samba to soul to funk. Seating is first come, first served.

Solitude Sunday Live Music Series

Take scenic Guardsman Pass to Big Cottonwood Canyon and drive down to Solitude Mountain Resort for free live music from local acts on the Village Green every Sunday afternoon (4–6 p.m.) throughout the summer months. Bring your camp chairs and cooler. New this season: an outdoor barbecue and tie-dye booth will be open on select Sundays.

Twilight Concert Series

Twilight returns to downtown Salt Lake City’s Gallivan Center this July–September. This epic annual concert series presents a wide range of performers, including popular acts like The Decemberists (August 11) and up-and-coming recording artists. Be prepared for large crowds, even in a post-pandemic world. Tickets are $10.

Utah Symphony’s Deer Valley Music Festival

Returning for its 18th season at the Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater and home to the Utah Symphony during the summer months, the music festival returns July 1–August 6 featuring an array of artists from various genres—think ABBA to Disney. Get your tickets early, as they tend to sell out.
