A new concert series, Concerts at Sundance, will feature local and international artists performances to benefit the Huntsman Cancer Institute.

This planned-to-be-annual music festival will take place during the Sundance Film Festival with a portion of tickets and donations to go towards fighting cancer.

“We have selected local bands and artists from all over the world to help us raise awareness for donating to cancer research,” said Stephanie DeGraw, event founder, in a press release.

Over 30 bands and artists will perform during Concerts at Sundance. There are artists traveling from Belgium, Canada, Texas, California and New York to mix with local performers.

Venues include Hotel Park City, Flanagan's, Ciseros and the Park City Mall.
