We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

High Road Cooler World Music Festival Saturday



No plans for Saturday? Check out the High Road Cooler World Music Festival at Liberty Park. You definitely won't want to miss this: six hours of danceable music, and a variety of music genres at that.---

With Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Rumba Libre, Insatiable, and Muscle Hawk (pictured) performing, there will be something for everyone. Doors open at 12:30 p.m. and the event runs until 7 p.m.

While you're kicking back and enjoying the music, food, beer, and wine will be available for purchase, and don't forget to check out the local environmental and community groups, green businesses, and human and civil rights organizations that will be at the festival so you can learn how to get involved and take action.

Feel free to bike down to the park, or there will be free parking inside and around Liberty Park. Blankets and low rise chairs (so everyone can see the performances) are welcome.

The High Road Cooler World Music Festival is one of thousands of events this weekend that are part of 350.org's 10/10/10 global initiative to raise awareness about climate protection issues. Check out this video from last year's global event:

High Road for Human Rights, directed by former Mayor Rocky Anderson, is hoping to put on the largest of these events with the music festival. For more information on High Road for Human Rights, check out their website
