Vespa addresses the crowd at the traditionally an industry-heavy affair that proved as popular as ever in a new space that doubles as a cafe during the day.
Michelle Morgan and Jeff Vespa
There is heat for “the next big things.” Before it was over, the fire marshal had to “shut down the door” as a safety issue — meaning, nobody could get access regardless of status.
Honored for “L.A. Times,” Morgan was safely inside before the cutoff.
The “Verge” scene.
Meanwhile, up at Park City Live, Tiesto played an “open format” set for film
“Before I Fall” and Gen-Z media powerhouse AwesomnessTV’s party during Snow Fest.
Straying far from the four-four house thump, Tiesto pulled from all areas of pop music, weaving together Drake’s “One Dance,” MØ’s “Final Song,” Bieber’s “Let Me Love You,” Yeezus era Kanye, Twenty One Pilots’ hit “Ride” and hip hop breakout 21 Savage alongside The Killers and his own hit “Red Lights.” It was a musical #PotLuck.

Artist Bennett Slater and Morgan Spurlock
It’s not all motion picture arts and sciences here in Park City. There’s also visual arts. Documentarian Spurlock led an artists’ panel at the Kimball Arts Center on Saturday afternoon.
Fares Fares and 4K
Only weeks after throwing CES, the Consumer Technology Association set up an array of 4k TV’s in a suite on Main Street to make a case to the content community: “Consumers want 4k. Make it.”
In addition to VR — which is everywhere at the festival — the second biggest consumer technology distribution topic is 4K. “Directors love it,” one of the CTA reps told The Party Report, while hinting that some actors were nervous about being able to see every pore on a face.
