CrucialFest 4: Louder Still

Salt Lake City's Loudest Homegrown Music Festival:

The 4th annual CrucialFest runs June 4-7, 2014 in downtown SLC and features 50 bands and performers. Showcases take place at Salt Lake City metro-area venues including local favorites Kilby Court and The Urban Lounge. Previous headliners include locals Gaza, Loom, Muscle Hawk, Eagle Twin, Red Bennies, SubRosa, & Night Sweats, alongside notable national acts like Burning Love, Judgement Day, Author & Punisher, Shelter Red, Witch Mountain, Black Elk, and Norska. This year we have been working hard on a line up that we know people will be excited about!

Jarom Bischoff : Event Director

Owner of Exigent Records Jarom Bischoff founded Crucial Fest in 2011. He did it with the intent of building a national festival where he could see all his favorite bands, but more so to cultivate and promote local music of which he is a huge believer. Jarom has a deep passion for writing, performing, and recording music. He currently plays drums in Worst Friends and performs solo occasionally as Harmon's Heart.
