The “Best Music Festival” -- as anointed in the 2012 City Weekly Best of Utah issue -- Provo’s Rooftop Concert Series announced its lineup today, which includes some classic Utah County acts, some up-and-comers and one special tribute evening.---

Scene-makers The Moth & The Flame and Desert Noises co-headline the first series show that I’m excited about. Fictionist -- who will be hot off of releasing their first EP on Atlantic -- and The Lower Lights return to the stage after appearing during last year’s inaugural season.

But the show of the year will be the Tom Petty tribute. Similar to the Abbey Road Show (read a feature on local super-group cover bands in 2011 here), there will be a core band with a rotating cast of Utah’s finest singers; but this will be an evening covering a wide swath of singalong from the rock & roll icon, rather than the band performing one album all the way through.

So, here's the lineup. Follow the links to read several City Weekly features about the various bands.

May 4:
Peter Breinholt w/Ryan Innes

June 1:
The Moth & The Flame and Desert Noises

July 6:
Heartbreakers & American Girls: The Songs of Tom Petty

August 3:
Isaac Russell w/Book On Tapeworm, John Allred

September 7:
Fictionist w/The New Electric Sound

October 5:
The Lower Lights w/The Folka Dots
