Visit Salt Lake Announces Sundance Film Festival Lounges
Salt Lake City— Visit Salt Lake announces the addition of the all-new Queer Lounge at The Daily to its annual line-up of popular Sundance Film Festival Lounges. The Queer Lounge, adding new music choices and drag performances, joins the always-popular Festival Lounges at Copper Common downtown and East Liberty Tap House in Sugar House, where local musicians are performing live nightly at 7 and 10 p.m. from Friday, Jan. 24, through Saturday, Feb. 1. A full entertainment schedule follows.
Helping locals and visitors alike get their Sundance Film Festival groove on in Utah’s capital city during the 10-day event, the Sundance Film Festival Lounges are an ideal place to continue the conversation after taking in this year’s roster of amazing film offerings. The Lounges are a great, affordable and convenient way to experience the magic of the Festival as there are no entrance fees and they’re open to the public, but seating is limited. All Festival Lounges are ideal locations to discuss film, art, theater and cultural pursuits both pre- and post-screenings.
“With the growth in Salt Lake’s role in Sundance, we’ve felt it’s critical to continually enhance the Festival experience, be it before or after a film screening at one of the Lounges or simply relaxing and enjoying some excellent local music in a casual setting,” commented Michael Mack, special projects director for Visit Salt Lake. “It’s been exciting to see the growth and success of Sundance here in Salt Lake, and I believe the urban experience offers something completely different, yet complementary, to that of the Park City scene.”
