Urban Artists


The 47th annual Utah Arts Festival will be held June 23 – 25, 2023 at Library Square in downtown Salt Lake City.

This application is specifically for musicians in the Urban Arts section of the Utah Arts Festival, we are looking for Emcees and DJs for Hip-Hop, EDM, R&B, Funk and Breakbeat artists. All other musicians should apply under the general ‘call for musicians and bands’ application.

All applications must be completed online. NO drop-off applications will be accepted.

The Utah Arts Festival is working to ensure we balance tradition and innovation. The number of consecutive years an artist has participated in the Utah Arts Festival will be taken into consideration as part of the final selection process. The Utah Arts Festival reserves the right to “rest” an artist for one year after three consecutive years of participation.

If you are interested in the possibility of being on the Jury to help select artists for the 2023 show please email for more information.
