Welcome! This is the place to learn everything about the Wasatch Music Festival, formally known as The Grand Kerfuffle. This year, we are hosting the concert on April 21st in the Huntsman Center with the headliners American Authors and Cold War Kids. For more information about the concert and tickets, view below.
“Since releasing their debut album Oh, What a Life in 2014, New York-based pop-rock outfit American Authors have experienced milestones most bands only dream about. They’ve watched their music climb to the top of the charts, and seen singles go multi-platinum. They’ve played awards shows, hit the stages of legendary venues all over the world, and toured with One Republic. They’ve heard their anthemic hit single “Best Day of My Life” in movie trailers, on TV shows, and as a theme song for the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Despite these accolades, however, lead singer Zac Barnett asserts that the best day of their lives is still yet to come. ‘We just want to keep going,’ he says. ‘We can’t wait to continue this adventure.’
After meeting at the prestigious Berklee College of Music, Barnett and bandmates guitarist James Adam Shelley, bassist Dave Rublin and drummer Matt Sanchez began to develop an entirely unique, collaborative sound; one that radiates style, without sacrificing substance… their tracks are infused with tribal rhythms, country twang, Latin riffs and EDM-style drops.“
