Do you like to ride your bike? Do you miss live music? If you’re nodding yes, you may want to set sail on the Salt Lake City Concert Cruise.
The social-distancing event kicks off Saturday with nine musical acts and about 8 miles of biking.
Billed by Kilby Court as a “safe, outdoor biking event featuring live music,” the cruise will take place throughout downtown Salt Lake City. The nine groups will be stationed at undisclosed locations, where they will perform “pop-up style shows.”
Ticket buyers will bike from one location to the other — about a mile between each stop — stopping for 10-15 minute performances by 90s TV, First Daze, Marny Proudfit, Midnight Palm, Dad Bod, Daytime Lover, Tyke James, Static Replica and Mitokandrea.
Safety during the coronavirus pandemic is a “top priority” for event organizers, who are “hoping to create a sustainable, summer-long event to help keep our local music community alive.”
Face masks must be worn during the performances. A guide will lead each group, which will be limited to 12 or fewer. Members of each household must remain 10 feet away from other members of their group during performances and 20 feet away while riding bikes. Ticket buyers must stay away from musicians before and after performances.
You must be 18 or older — or accompanied by a guardian — to attend the Salt Lake City Concert Cruise. Tickets are $30 and are available at 24tix.com until Saturday at noon. Ticket buyers will receive arrival instructions by email.
