The theme of EVE 2013 is "Light, Art, Sound," and arguably the most exciting element at this year’s downtown three-day New Year’s Eve celebration is the expansion of the latter.

For the first time in the event’s four-year history, nationally touring acts are scheduled to perform at EVE, city and downtown officials announced Wednesday at a Gallivan Center news conference. Also new this year, the event’s headquarters will be at the remodeled Gallivan Center, rather than the Salt Palace Convention Center.

Casey Jarman, head of Salt Lake City’s popular summer Twilight Concert Series, booked EVE’s musical acts. This year’s event will offer top-shelf nationally touring acts such as Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Blind Pilot, Nick Waterhouse and !!! (aka Chk Chk Chik), all sharing stages with local acts David Williams, Night Sweats, No-Nation Orchestra and the Joshua Payne Trio.

In previous years, when asked by Downtown Alliance officials to help with EVE, his answer was always "Hell, no," Jarman joked. But with the growth of the event, he saw an opportunity to "give people a different perspective."

Jarman’s success over the years at transforming city concerts into marquee events made him the right person to book EVE, said Nick Como, spokesman for the Downtown Alliance. "We saw the success of the Twlight Concert Series," Como said. "There is the opportunity for [EVE] to become a great music event. It’s great to have Casey involved."

Other organizations, such as The Leonardo and Discovery Gateway, will join previous venues Clark Planetarium, Off Broadway Theatre, Broadway Centre Cinemas, UMOCA and Temple Square offering events during the three-day festivities. In addition, there will be a new family festival at The Gateway from 3 to 7 nightly.
