Crucialfest is returning to Salt Lake and is slated to be bigger and better than ever at their new location, Utah State Fairgrounds. 40 bands from across the country and several from overseas will take this stage at this two-day festival with genres that include varieties of rock, electronic, punk, psyche, and heavy music.

Most notably, Crucialfest will be bringing in headliners PIG DESTROYER, NEUROSIS, CHELSEA WOLF, and RUSSIAN CIRCLES. These award-winning and critically acclaimed bands play sold out shows across the country and have large fan bases eagerly awaiting their next performance.

“This year’s lineup and venue both mark a huge step forward for Crucialfest. Booking NEUROSIS has been a personal goal for years, and since its inception, we have aimed to get Crucialfest to the Utah State Fairpark. A lot of us Salt Lakers feel nostalgic about the Big Ass Show, and Warped Tour there in the late 90s/early 2000s, and I hope to reignite that excitement.” Says Jarom Bischoff, Overseer at Crucialfest. “At the same time, this is going to be a unique event. We have performers from the UK and France, as well as from all over the United States. I’ve never felt so much excitement leading up to a Crucialfest, and there is no doubt in my mind that this will be an extraordinary year.”

Beyond the music, Crucialfest festival-goers of all ages can enjoy feature themed stages, music market vendors, a food court, VIP areas, beer and alcohol tents and much more. Late night 21+ entertainment includes CrucialDrag, a horror-themed drag show starring Biqtch Puddin’, Vander Von Odd, and Ursula Major, as well as performances from Earthless, Amigo the Devil, Street Sects, Magic Sword, Iceburn, Done, Eagle Twin, and Dan Terminus.

“In the end, what most fans love about Crucialfest is that it’s the show that gives back to the community by fostering regional and national relationships and shows how vibrant and alive the SLC music scene is.” Alex Cragun, SLUG Magazine

Crucialfest will be held Sept. 28-29, 2018 at Utah State Fairgrounds. Tickets, info and band lineup can be found at http://www.crucialfest.com . General passes range from $35-$75.
