A similar presale for members will begin at 7 p.m. on May 13 for all August and September shows before a general sale that begins at 9 a.m. on May 16, according to the venue's website.

The concert series — held now at an amphitheater at the northwest corner of Red Butte Garden by the University of Utah campus — began with just four shows in 1987 and has grown ever since, aside from a one-year hiatus because of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. It's brought in artists like BB King, Chicago, David Byrne, Joan Baez, John Prine, Kacey Musgraves, Norah Jones, Mavis Staples, Smokey Robinson, Vampire Weekend and Willie Nelson over the past few decades.

This year's slate was released a day after Salt Lake City announced its Twilight Concert Series lineup, which is entering its 37th year this summer.
