October 2019 is full of dope hip hop concerts


Kyle Atkinson

Something strange that I’ve noticed in 2019 has been the lack of big-name hip hop concerts in Utah. Usually by this point in the year we’ve had a couple big acts, but there hasn’t been many thus far. However, the concert scene is really about to heat up in the final few months of the year. 

Luckily for you, I’ve gathered some of the biggest concerts of October all in one place for your reading pleasure. Read on to learn about some dope hip hop concerts. 

Here’s the who, what, and when: who’s performing where and when the show is, along with more useful info.
