Artists of Today, Tomorrow and All-Time Bring Four Special Nights of Music to Households Nationwide
LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Sundance Film Festival may be known as the ultimate destination for independent film, but come Monday, June 4, at 10 p.m. EDT (9 p.m. CDT), the musical experience of Park City, Utah, comes to households nationwide as WE: Women’s Entertainment presents, “Park City: Where Music Meets Film, Presented by ZonePerfect® Nutrition Bars.”
Filmed in high-definition for four nights during the acclaimed festival, the intimate and mostly acoustic sets by Joss Stone, Sean Lennon, Lindsey Buckingham, Joan Osborne, Daniel Powter, Jonny Lang and others celebrate the unique and powerful relationship between film and music.

Artist support filled the audience of A-list celebrities including Cuba Gooding Jr., Jessica Biel and Utah’s own Donny Osmond.
“Music has a profound impact on the film viewing experience,” said Edmonds. “It’s what makes a good film great, and a great film timeless. ‘Park City: Where Music Meets Film’ celebrates that one powerful idea with some of the hottest and most talented performers on stage today.”
