1:45pm – 2:45am on the Main Stage – Matthew & the Hope
Matthew and The Hope is a Salt Lake City-based alternative country band. Their first studio album entitled “Burn It To The Ground” was released in 2011, and has supported them through several western-american tours. Accredited to an incredibly wide variety of influences, together they’ve created a very intense and versatile live show. At any one of their performances you can expect to experience a blend of whiskey-fueled porch pounding bluegrass breakdowns, the dreary and haunting melodies of traditional country music, and a very unapologetic “take it or leave it” style of storytelling. So far, their efforts have allowed them to share stages with major acts such as Shooter Jennings, Casey Donahew Band, Old Man Markley, Larry and His Flask, and several others. Their much anticipated sophomore album is scheduled for release in 2017, and the band has already scheduled tour dates for almost the rest of the entire year. When they’re not on the road, you can catch this incredible act at almost every major venue in the greater Salt Lake Valley.
3:00pm – 4:45pm on the Main Stage – Hip Service
It’s the music that makes you get up and shake your hips! Rhythm & Blues, Classic Soul, sounds of Motown, Classic Rock, 70’s Disco, or Today’s Dance Hits: this is the essential music for any dance party!

Their unique sound and visually exciting stage show continues to attract an ever growing and loyal audience.
This group’s dance-’til-you-drop performances and stellar reputation in the entertainment business has made Hip Service “The-Band-In-Demand!” Great music, dynamic choreography, endless fun and enthusiasm, and true professionalism make Hip Service a very HIP pick.
