• Young the Giant at the Gallivan Center

• Slipknot at USANA Amphitheater
Not to be outdone by the Juggalos, the masked ones, Slipknot seems to have their own gathering of sorts. The Knotfest Roadshow, new masks and all, rolls into USANA with Volbeat, Gojira, and Behemoth will metal you so hard. Don’t forget, with all this entertainment, doors will open early at 4 pm.
• 5th Annual Ogden Pride Festival
August 3rd through the 5th, Embrace, Encourage, and empower at the Ogden Amphitheatre. The Festival is a FREE, family-friendly community event that features food, drinks, entertainment, and activities. Ogden Pride celebrates and supports the LGBT community, individuals and their families and allies in Northern Utah in building and strengthening inclusive communities. They are committed to excellence in advocacy, educational programs, and services.
• 47th Annual National Flute Association Convention
I had no good reason to include this in this week’s list. Perhaps I wanted to see if you were paying attention. Perhaps I like the idea of a convention where all the guests smell like the bathroom at Bath and Body Works. Perhaps I love the idea of a massive amount of flutists amassed in downtown Salt Lake, drinking all the booze and raising hell. These are the kind of thoughts that give me hope in these dark times. This convention runs through the 4th.
• Matt and Kim at Ogden Amphitheatre
Brooklyn’s bang and crash, party duo takes on Ogden Amphitheatre with the Ladies of LCD Soundsystem part of the Ogden Twilight Concert Series.
• 50th Annual Park City Kimball Arts Festival
Friday through Sunday you really should head up to Park City at the Kimball Arts Festival and celebrate the amazing milestone that is 50 years! Celebrate in the VIP Lounge, Festival After Dark, the Art Starts Here Gala, Studio on Main, Brushes and Brunch, live music, and a kids’ art area.
• Christina P at Wiseguys
Christina P’s Ride or Die Tour drops into Wiseguys downtown for 2 nights. Christina P. is the co-host of the Your Mom’s House podcast with her hubby, Tom Segura. She is also incredibly funny!
• Joe Rogan and Dave Chappelle at USANA
Announced a little more than 3 weeks it was a pretty big surprise to get both of these amazing comedians in one night and at USANA. Probably the biggest comedy event Utah has seen in years.
• Food Truck and Brewery Battle at The Gateway
Admission is FREE! Don’t miss the Food Truck and Brewery battle featuring 13 breweries and 17 food trucks with live entertainment and music you don’t to miss this movable feast, parked for one night only at The Gateway!
• 7th Annual Antelope Island Spider Fest
I don’t know what kind of sadist decided the unholy spider needed any sort of festival but may God have mercy on their soul. It’s a day full of spider-themed presentations, crafts, guided walks, citizen science, poetry, photography, art and food vendors, and more to learn about these fascinating residents of the island.
• Punishment at the Peak at Deseret Peak Complex
All part of the festivities that is the Tooele County Fair, don’t miss the bumper-busting action that is one of Utah’s favorite pastimes, sanctioned car wrecks.
What a week!
