    Kilby Block Party 2023

    The fourth edition of the Kilby Block Party will be held the weekend of May 12-14 at the Utah State Fairpark in Salt Lake City. This independently-run music festival, associated with music venue Kilby Count, is expanding this year in scope beyond the confines of downtown SLC and to three days. The full lineup and daily breakdowns were revealed last week after the Coachella lineup announcement. If features a superb collection of contemporary and legacy indie rock/pop acts.

    Daily breakdowns are:

    FRIDAY - Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Dominic Fike, Japanese Breakfast, Cuco, Remi Wolf, Lucius, Ritt Momney, Frankie Cosmos, Jean Dawson, Alice Phoebe Lou, Deerhoof, Westerman, Julie, Momma, NoSo, Miya Folick, The Plastic Cherries, Homephone, and Sunhills

    SUNDAY - Pavement, Pixies, The Backseat Lovers, The Walkmen, Parquet Courts, Surf Curse, Faye Webster, Crumb, Ethel Cain, Wednesday, Kate Bollinger, Spill Tab, Mannequin Pussy, Deeper, Tolchok Trio, Worlds Worst, Fonteyn, Backhand, Musor

    Compared to other corporate music festivals, ticket prices for this level of talent are quite reasonable, especially VIP. Three-day GA, VIP, and Super VIP passes are available for purchase at $209, $299, and $399 plus service fee. One-day GA, VIP, and Super VIP tickets are $85, $129, and $179 plus service fee. Three-day pass holders get in-and-out privileges.

    Coachella crossover artists include: Dominic Fike, Remi Wolf, Alex G, Weyes Blood, Ethel Cain, and Momma. Since it is the same weekend as Just Like Heaven festival in Pasadena, there will probably be a few acts on Friday and Sunday that are shared.

    The only drawback is this festival is the same weekend as JLH. I would definitely go to this if it wasn't.

    Coachella '02, '03, '04, '05, '06, '07, '08, '09, '10, '11, '12 W1, '13 W1&2, '14 W1, '15 W1&2, '16 W1

    Yeah this caught my eye back when it got announced - the idea that there's a festival with one day headlined by both Pavement and Pixies and I probably won't go is an insult to the eighteen-year-old version of me.

    This would be an easy choice if it were in Los Angeles, but the drive + having to choose between this and Just Like Heaven make for a pretty rough case. We'll see what JLH's lineup looks like.


      It's happening this weekend. Here is the updated schedule:

      It looks like a pretty cool setup for an indie music festival.
