Along with an array of handcrafted goods, engineering technology and artisan foods, Craft Lake City’s DIY Festival also plays host to several local musicians and dance performers from all across Utah. Over 50 musicians, bands, performers, dancers, singer/songwriters and more will take part in this year’s festival, showcasing their talents across two stages. The festival will also include the SLUG Mag Busking Lounge Presented by Yelp, a busking area traditionally made up of street performers, featuring smaller and acoustic acts which will be located on the north end of the plaza near the food trucks
