Summer is here and with the arrival of green it is time to welcome a cacophony of sound coming to a mountain peak near you. From Reggae to Rock, from solo artists to six piece bands, a diverse and talented mix of musical artists are booked to play Utah’s mountains this summer.
Most of the mountain venues allow you to bring your own coolers and food. Along with the coolers, make sure to bring a blanket so that your party can picnic in style. Don’t forget to bring a sweatshirt and even pants, because even the summer mountains are chilly once the sun goes down.
Let your summer evenings unwind at one of the following venues and don’t forget to dance like no one’s watching. Because there’s nothing better than hearing good music in the mountains under the setting sun. OK, I lied, nothing tops a few powder turns.
