While there are more than 50 different events and performances taking place at eight different locations over a three-day period, the centerpiece for the entire EVE celebration is happening around the Salt Palace. The indoor activities include The Ballroom for dancing adults, eBay It Forward and Bounce Town for the kids. The Chill Zone Music Stage is the place to catch some of the finest from our local music scene and a few welcome visitors: Nate Robinson & DJ Grey, Brian Thurber, Colin Robison, Libbie Linton, The Devil Whale and Cub Country will be taking the stage, in that order.
But for those winterized enough to be outdoors, there’s more for you along West Temple. Aside from EVE Air, two stages are set up to warm up the crowds throughout the chilly evening. On the Stage Ablaze, there are performances every 45 minutes from Incendiary Circus, who will be performing amazing feats of fire-dancing, -breathing and -eating between bands. Meanwhile, on the Bandemonium Stage, the music continues with another set of performers: Starting at 6 p.m., in this order, are The Feel Good Patrol, The Trappers, Toy Bombs, Eyes Lips Eyes, Muscle Hawk and—closing out the stage prior to countdown again this year—Caleb Chapman & The Voodoo Orchestra. And then, of course, at midnight, grab someone to kiss, head outside for the countdown and watch the fireworks light up the downtown sky.
