Utah Live Concerts Helps Payson Fans Cut Footloose with Music Festival

Group Creates New Events Linking Veteran Musicians with Utah Communities

PAYSON, UTAH—April 1, 2021—Utah Live Concerts Foundation (ULCF) today announced an agreement to bring Payson fans and live music back together for the “Here Comes the Sun” outdoor festival July 30 and 31 at ­­­­­Memorial Park, 300 South Main Street. City Council voted unanimously to plan the event given relaxing regulations and the planners history with creating safe events.

“Fans are super ready to get outside for summer fun and entertainment,” states Mayor Bill Wright of Payson City. “With our city’s historic ties to the movie Footloose, perhaps it’s fitting that we’ve asked the city fathers if we can host a party and everyone’s onboard. After the night of COVID, I think we’re all ready for a little sun.”

ULCF’s formal mission is to create better opportunities for affordable family entertainment using the deep reservoir of local talent performing music festivals and events. Utah Live Concerts Foundation consists of experienced, local professionals with the proven resources to plan, collaborate, and execute unique, fun, and cause-related community musical events in Utah. These include Touring-grade Sound Engineering & Equipment, Web Design/Creation, Stage Design & Management, Public Relations, Sales & Sponsorship Procurement, and Graphic Arts. 

“Our mostly volunteer team is thrilled to apply our expertise to community and corporate events that entertain and lift lives,” states Bryan Chapman, 2021 chairman for Utah Live Concerts Foundation. “We envision delivering high quality planning and execution for each event we work on. Fans and sponsors have given us high marks for previous events we’ve managed, even during the year of COVID.”

ULCF also seeks to create youth components in events geared to encourage younger musicians. There will also be continued focus on the senior community that has enjoyed such events over the years. Partner charities are also an important key for 2021 and beyond.

Payson sponsors and volunteers for the festival are currently being sought. Fans, sponsors, and volunteers can follow, volunteer or find the latest on Utah Live Concerts events, including in Payson, at www.utahliveconcerts.org .
