When you think of Utah the last thing on your mind is what is the music scene like there? Sure Texas has its SXSW and California has Coachella, and Tennesse has Bonnaroo but guess what Utah has something of it's own as well. Yep that is right - our great little State has a little Concert Series called "Twilight Concert Series" that has been coming along every summer since 2005 (possible longer not sure exactly).

What is unique about this Concert Series? Well it is FREE and it runs weekly for 8 weeks usually right in the middle of the summer months (July/August). They originally started hosting the events at Gallivan Center and switched them over to Pioneer Park for the 2010 series. The big news from last year was the Modest Mouse concert bringing 40,000 people to the show. The Series has really grown and it will be interesting to see how the 2011 lineup unfolds and what location it will be held at.

The 2011 line up has not been unveiled just yet but I think we will get some details here in the next week or so at some of the acts coming to town.  Lets take a look at the past 3 years lineups which were all just outstanding.

  1. It will be at Pioneer Park again this year. On the website there is information for vendors and it states Pioneer Park as the location.

  2. Yeah I saw that. Good detective work there. I think they have to be close to releasing additional details. I have my fingers crossed for someone like The National or My Morning Jacket or Band of Horses

  5. With Fleet Foxes already coming to town in July it is hard to think they would also be a part of the TCS lineup
