The Sounds of Summer Music are Officially Returning to the Mountains!

Park City
Summit Sotheby's International Realty

Nothing beats sitting under the star-filled sky in the cool mountain air with family and friends, listening to live music courtesy of some of the biggest names in the business. This summer, local promoters have worked tireless to bring the best and the brightest back to the Beehive State.  To help you map out your summer listening tour, I’ve put together a list of concerts scheduled both indoors and outside throughout the Wasatch Back, and at the larger venues in Salt Lake, so get our your calendar and fill in the gaps left by last year’s eventless summer!

Deer Valley® Music Festival, the long-running series from the venerable Utah Symphony | Utah Opera (USUO), is the cornerstone of summer concerts at Deer Valley’s Snow Park Lodge, and this year’s lineup is sure to impress.

To comply with possible COVID-19 issues, USUO has posted the following disclaimer:

Please note: all programs are subject to change given the ongoing uncertainty around the COVID-19 health crisis. Though USUO is planning for a revised season of performances and hopes to proceed without interruption, the organization is prepared to respond to recommendations from the state of Utah, health officials, and Summit County. Should USUO need to cancel or change elements of the season, ticket holders would be notified about options for ticket donations or exchanges into alternate programs. USUO continues to prioritize the health and well-being of its audience, musicians, staff, guest artists, and the entire community.

Tickets are either lawn or reserved, with low-slung (9” or lower) chairs allowed within the lawn seating area, and concert-goers provided the option to bring in their own food and drink. This series also offers discounted tickets for youth ages 4-18. And, while individual tickets are available for each show, you can also build your own package with the Design-A-Series and receive up to 20% off.

VIP packages that include special parking and admission to the Intermission Reception start at $1,000 (tickets not included), and since the USUO is a nonprofit, a portion of your purchase supports the arts and is tax-deductible.

Make it a carefree night by taking free public transit from Park City Mountain, where there is plenty of free parking and a convenient transit stop. The Red and Lime busses will take you directly to the concert venue.

The resort’s other concert series, aptly-named the Deer Valley Concert Series, has not announced a series for this year, so we will add that in, if/when it’s shared.

COVID has placed Park City’s historic Egyptian Theatre on hiatus, and though they’re going forward with summertime Youtheatre offerings, they haven’t announced a line-up for 2021, as yet. I would encourage all Egyptian fans to consider supporting the theatre and help to get them back open by joining The Pharaoh Club or making a donation by clicking here.

Park City Institute is once again hosting its summertime Big Stars Bright Nights series, which will be held indoors at the Eccles Center, and includes seven shows, including the swingin’ style of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and concluding with county music legend Marty Stewart on Aug. 21.

Concerts at Salt Lake’s beloved summer music venue, Red Butte Garden, are also on hold as of now, but the venue issued the following statement regarding the future of their shows, based on COVID status:

“Red Butte Garden is looking forward to resuming the popular Outdoor Concert Series as soon as it is safe to do so. We are in contact with state and university officials to ensure that we are informed of safety protocols and we are working closely with industry managers and agents to monitor which artists are planning to perform this summer and fall. Until we can enjoy live music again, we would like to bring you closer to the artists who have performed in the amphitheatre. Check out live-stream concerts at Keeping The Music Alive!
