Little Dragon, Big Wild & Jai Wolf, Broken Social Scene and Chromeo are among several bands announced Thursday, March 1, by Ogden Twilight Concert Series officials as featured artists for its 2018 season line-up.
This year, the concert series will consist of two sessions. The traditional Session 1 will be Thursdays in June, with an added Session 2 featuring concerts during July and August.
Session 1 includes The Flaming Lips on June 7, Little Dragon on June 14, Bonobo on June 21 and Metronomy & Cold War Kids on June 28.
Session 2 includes Thievery Corporation on July 6, Sylvan Esso and Unknown Mortal Orchestra on July 14, Big Wild & Jail Wolf on July 26, Broken Social Scene on Aug. 2, Chromeo on Aug. 7 and CHVRCHES and Pale Waves on Aug. 9.
Doors and food vendors open at 5 p.m. with bands beginning at 6 p.m. at the Ogden Amphitheater.
“We’ve been working on this for over six months and really hope you guys dig the work,” Ogden Twilight said on its Facebook page. “Each year we throw everything we have at the artists (vs. marketing) as you can probably tell.”
Season tickets go on sale today, but individual night tickets go on sale March 8. Tickets are available at 24Tix.com/ot.
A Session 1 general admission season pass — which includes four shows — is $35, while a VIP season pass is $185. A Session 2 season pass for six shows is $55, and a VIP season pass for the same session is $270. Individual general admission tickets are $10 each, and individual VIP tickets are $50 each.
The reason behind splitting the concert series into two sessions is due to the way the organization receives public funding and arts grants that cannot be “commingled,” according to the Facebook post.
“Do not snooze on grabbing tickets,” according to the post. “The Shins sold out last year and we’ve reduced capacity by 500 people for 2018. I think we’ve got 5-6 sellouts on this roster.”
The series is still finishing up details for other special guests throughout the season, which will be announced as soon as they can.
