After five long years, U92 is proud to announce the return of Summer Jam 2022 at Rio Tinto Stadium. Artists like RUSS, YG with Cordae, Vince Staples and Jnr Choi will rock the stage at the University of Utah Health Plaza on June 17, at 5:00 p.m. MT
“The whole UCREW is beyond excited to bring back the iconic U92 Summer Jam to Utah, especially with our friends at Rio Tinto Stadium,” says U92 DJ Erockalypze. “So many memories have been made at the show where you get to see your favorite hip hop stars come together. And, to do it for the first time in Sandy, in the place where our favorite sports team calls home, its epic backdrop, and the great new stage and sound system really brings it all together.”
According to Erockalypze, RUSS has already sold out countless shows, while YG is an icon in west coast hip hop. With the addition of a legend like Vince Staples and rising stars like Cordae and Jnr Choi, it’s sure to be a classic.
Summer Jam is one of several concerts planned for Rio Tinto Stadium over the summer.
RSL President John Kimball says, “Rio Tinto is more than a first-class soccer stadium, it’s a world-class entertainment venue. We’ve hosted legends like Paul McCartney and Jason Aldean, and we’re excited to help U92 bring back Summer Jam.”
