Summerjam 2010 is almost here and there are a few things you need to know about this concert. First, it is a VERY EARLY SHOW. The gates open at 5:00pm with the first act on stage at 6:00pm. The show will be finished by 10:00pm. Snoop has a long set. I caution anyone thinking they will be fine by arriving at 7:00pm or later! You do not want to be later than 7:00pm on this show!!!!! UTA Trax is located on Main Street and has a stop at the Gallivan Center. I suggest using Trax to get to and from the Gallivan Center on Wednesday night. Parking will be difficult as there are other events happening downtown at the same time.
Second, you will have to go through security to enter the Gallivan Center. Security will be conducting full pat downs and bag searches to ensure the safety of our listeners and guests at Summerjam. We understand this may seem like an inconvenience when entering the venue, but we would like to assure you that this is for everyone's safety.
A lot of people have asked about the set up due to construction at the Gallivan Center. The stage will be placed on Gallivan Avenue by the Wells Fargo building. We expect this to be a very unique experience for all those attending due to the limited amount of tickets available. We are hoping to provide you with one of the biggest Hip Hop concerts to ever hit Salt Lake City, and give you great views while you are there. You will have better views and closer views of the artists because of the limitations in size.
U92 is hosting the Official Summerjam After Party after the show at The Depot. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at The Depot box office. VIP tables are available as well, and can be purchased through The Depot.
Tickets are going fast and we can only accommodate 5,000 people. Tickets will be available for purchase at the gates at the Gallivan Center if they are not sold out. Tickets will be available for $25. Can't wait to see you there! This will be one EPIC concert.
