The Fidelity Investments Park City Jazz Festival
Artist Announcement and Locals Tickets on Sale
This week, organizers of the Fidelity Investments Park City Jazz Festival which takes place Aug. 25- 27 at the Deer Valley, announced this year’s roster of performers. Summit and Wasatch County locals tickets are now on sale for the festival. A world-class group of artists including Grammy award winners, diverse cultural selections and the biggest names in music are scheduled to perform.
Headlining the festival are Chris Botti; Kirk Whalum and Gerald Albright; and Robben Ford.
"We were very selective this year," said Kris Severson, Executive Director of the Park City Jazz Foundation. "We looked at a lot of artists, studied a wide variety of research, requests, and input coming up with this selection. Our goal was to attract the broadest audience possible with really big names while exposing the community to some great artist they may not be aware of. I think we have done a really great job." The festival will feature two stages, a beer garden and festival village for artisans to display their wares.
The line up also includes:
