The tickets are $5 in advance and $8 at the door, but a portion of the proceeds goes to HopeKids, a foundation for families with children who have life-threatening diseases such as cancer.
“I like to go and see as many bands as I can, but I realized there wasn’t a place to go see all of them at the same time,” Francis-Evans said.
The day will kick off with some softer bands and as the day progresses, so will the music toward a harder, edgier and louder sound.
“It’s just going to be a huge blast,” Francis-Evans said. “There’s going to be so much great music and it’s a perfect time to be introduced to some local talent. We have so much talent here in Salt Lake.”
The lineup includes: King Niko, Ryan Darton, Nate Francis, The Swinging Lights, Fail to Follow, MC Pigpen & Amber Lees, Red Bennies, The Wayne Hoskins Band, Fox Van Cleef, Muscle Hawk, Scenic Byway, Dirty Blonde, Red Dog Revival, Dark Seas, I Capture Castle, DJ Robo Rob and Max Pain and the Groovies.
