About the Headlining Performers on Friday

About the Headlining Performers on Friday

Kacy Hill has spent her entire career growing in a musical cocoon. With three studio albums, Like A Woman, Is It Selfish If We Talk About Me Again?, and Simple, Sweet, and Smiling, and high-profile collabs with artists like Travis Scott (“90210)” and Kid Cudi (“Releaser”), she spent years flexing her musical wings in every direction. But on her incoming 2024 album BUG!, Hill has hatched into her most realized and refined self. Recruiting sonic innovators such as Bartees Strange, Nourished by Time, and Jim-E Stack to nurture the potency of her vision, BUG! is a tapestry of earthy folk, dream-pop, and spacious Americana — all orbiting the themes of angst and the clarity of confidence patiently waiting on the other side of it. Being applauded by song-writing giants like Lana Del Rey and Lorde and industry definers such as Vogue, Pitchfork, Ones To Watch, PAPER Magazine, HYPEBEAST, V Magazine, Interview Magazine, DAZED, COLORS, Perfectly Imperfect, and Nylon, Hill certifies that her metamorphosis into her final form is only just beginning.

Talia Keys is an activist-musician who has laid a loyal local foundation in Salt Lake City clubs for over a decade, and later made her name on national tours and jam festivals from coast to coast. Keys’ vintage ethos, as well as her trademark fire and brimstone stage presence, are an amalgam of her journey, identity, influences; a new twist on the rock n’ roll troubadour singing songs of struggle and ultimately, triumph. Like so many soul and blues heroines who have paved the roads before her, Keys writes and sings of the tensions that continue to plague our cultural climate. 

As a queer woman in today’s divided America, she’s on a mission to tenaciously deliver an uplifting message while fiercely advocating for the underrepresented. It’s a badge of honor that Talia wears with pride, and infuses into her art.

Tolchock Trio is one of the most influential SLC bands from the 2000s. The group will reunite once more at the 16th Annual Craft Lake City DIY Festival Presented By Harmons, following reunion performances in 2017 and at Kilby Block Party in 2023. 

Their power guitars and little-to-no nonsense style made them a standout on the rock end of the Utah musical spectrum. Between 2000 and 2013, the group produced three albums in total: 2003’s Hello Bird, 2005’s Ghosts Don’t Have Bones and the critically acclaimed 2008 album Abalone Skeletone. These legacy extreme rockers–in the vein of broken cords, failed amps and burning tubes–play music at the point where anti-humanist and over-humanist intersect.
