We get it. It’s lunchtime and you’re starving. You’re looking for inspiration. You may even be facing a group of hungry co-workers looking for that great compromise and perfect spot to go eat. Speak up and declare “Let’s head to the Gateway for the Brown Bag Concert” and you will forever go down in history as the office hero of summer 2018.

Brown Bag Concert Series is back!  Did you miss it?

Salt Lake City Arts Council is excited to once again partner with Spy Hop Productions and the Girls Who Rock Camp for the 2018 Series.  It runs August 6 – 10 and August 20 – 24 and will be happening in downtown Salt Lake City at the Gateway.

Concerts are held Monday through Friday from 12:15 to 1:00 p.m. at the Olympic Fountain at The Gateway.


The event is FREE.   Food trucks will be onsite, Gateway has plenty of food options or bring your own lunch.

What is really great about this program is the Arts Council works with  Spy Hop’s 801 Sessions program and Girls Who Rock Camp that provides performance opportunities for Salt Lake City’s budding youth talent. Ten young acts gain valuable experience assisting with event planning, marketing, artist management, and live-performance production.

So not only are you getting out of the office, taking in a free concert, and networking with new people but you’re also supporting Salt Lake City’s growing art scene.

Here is this year’s lineup:

Week 1

  • Monday, August 6 – Owen Purcell
  • Tuesday, August 7 – Not So Friendlies
  • Wednesday, August 8 – Jamen Rivera
  • Thursday, August 9 – Not Yeti
