Tickets for the event go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. at 24Tix.com.
"We feel really lucky to be a band from Utah and to be surrounded by such natural beauty,” Brady Parks, the band’s lead vocalist and guitarist, said in a statement. He added that the amphitheater in Springdale “is one of those strikingly beautiful places. ... We played a show there a few years ago and ever since then we’ve been dying to go back.”
The National Parks will headline the festival, which will run from 2 to 10 p.m., with gates opening at 1 p.m. Also on the bill:
• Folk-rock singer-songwriter Joshua James, who lives part-time in American Fork.
• Alt-rock band The Strike, also from Provo.
• Folk-rock band Tow’rs, from Flagstaff, Ariz.
• Alt-rock duo The Federal Empire, from Los Angeles.
• Utah-raised singer-songwriter Ellee Duke.
• Indie-rock band Brother, also from Provo.
Tickets are $45 for general admission, with a $5 discount for those buying “early bird” tickets (between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Friday). Tickets to the first five rows are $65 each.
For $100, fans can buy VIP tickets that include seating up front, pit access, a meet-and-greet, an album bundle, a festival poster, and access to a special private show the night before, on Friday, April 24.
