Who are those creatures roaming the streets of Park City? Giant abominable snowmen?

Rest assured, they are the one and only PPL MVR (pronounced People Mover).

With a debut due on Elektra Records, they play the kind of fist-in-the-air heavy rock you would expect from such mysterious creatures and you will not want to miss it.


Our Music Director is on the bill at Coachella this year so come see him spin in this far more intimate setting!


The two Texas natives behind Jamestown Revival put a SoCal spin on their grassroots rock. They also be playing Coachella later this year!


Penguin Prison channels the spirit of 80’s pop geniuses like Hall and Oates and Prince into modern tracks that are completely irresistible.


Tunde Adebimpe is a founding member of indie rock favorites TV on the Radio, who released the exceptional album “Seeds” at the end of 2014. He comes to Sundance as the star of the film  “Nasty Baby”, alongside Kristen Wiig and will spin a Guest DJ set for us.


Rob Garza is one half of the dub-influenced electronic duo Thievery Corporation, who continue to sell out major venues across the world 20 years into their career.
