SALT LAKE CITY — The fourth rendition of the Kilby Court Block Party is slated to be its largest yet, and now its organizers are ready to share who is coming.

The Strokes, Pavement, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs will headline the festival along with support from popular and critically acclaimed artists like Pixies, Run The Jewels, Japanese Breakfast, Caroline Polachek, Cuco, Faye Webster, Hippo Campus and Grace Ives, according to S&S Presents.

In all, a few dozen musical artists are scheduled to perform at the three-day event held between May 12-14, 2023. Four more performers will be announced at a later time. A complete list of the artists attending can be found here.

"(Kilby Court Block Party 4) will include a multitude of festival upgrades and will mark the largest multiday indie music festival to ever happen in Salt Lake City," S&S Presents wrote, in a news release Tuesday.

The Kilby Court Block Party debuted in 2019 with Death Cab for Cutie headlining an event to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the beloved small music venue in Salt Lake City's Granary District. It's grown quickly since then.

S&S Presents announced last month that it would expand the popular event and move its location after this year's two-day festival held on the street between the Salt Lake City-County Building and Salt Lake City Library sold out. The event, which drew thousands of people to downtown Salt Lake City, featured singer-songwriter Phoebe Bridgers along with other notable artists like Steve Lacey, who was recently nominated for four Grammy awards, including Record of the Year.

Organizers decided to add an extra day to the block party and move it to the Utah State Fairpark.

It will also cost concertgoers a bit more to attend in 2023. Tickets will go on sale Wednesday, with three-day general admission and VIP passes ranging between $209 and $400 plus fees. Two-day general admission tickets to the 2022 block party were $99 apiece plus fees.
