I am writing from beautiful Whitefish Montana with an amazing November opportunity in TX. I would love to see friends from all over there!
Entering into it’s eleventh year, UTOPIAfest is regarded as on of the the foremost experiential camping, music, and arts events in Texas and beyond. The UTOPIAn culture and community thrives around common values of family, the outdoors, wellness, and is built on a musical foundation. UTOPIAfest is three days of immersive connection, interactivity, and celebration.
Past performers include Charles Bradley, Dr. John, Patty Griffin, Lucas Nelson & Promise of the Real, STS9, Father John Misty, TATATAT, Victor Wooten and Lucious.
|update: The Return of Shakey Graves!|
| Even before his historic UTOPiA Sessions taping in 2013, we looked forward to hosting Alejandro Rose-Garcia at UTOPiAfest. In 2015, he along with drummer Chris Boosadha, joined us at Four Sisters Ranch for a surprise performance, ‘cranking up the gain on his amplifier and manhandling his guitar with brutal abandon in logging Utopia’s heaviest set,’ Austin Chronicle’s Kevin Curtin recalled. |
Over the years, the Shakey Graves lineup and sound has evolved to bonafide fest headliner level, as many of us just witnessed last Saturday, at an incredible Whitewater Amphitheater show with fellow UTOPiAns Dr. Dog. Following an amazing run of selling out many of the biggest and best venues in the country, at last we’re thrilled to welcome Shakey Graves as a headliner of UTOPiAfest Eleven, joining the ranks of many of our favorite performers in Austin and beyond.
We’re also very happy to welcome our friend Matthew Logan Vasquez, of Delta Spirit and Glorietta, back to UTOPiA for a special performance at Goodtimes Grove late Thursday! Other late night additions include Joel Laviolette, who will DJ the silent disco ecstatic dance, Frontin’, who will bring instrumental hit hip hop grooves to the disco.
I am honored to be partnering with them on the VIP experience at the Reveille Peak Ranch which features and exciting array of natural wonders and hand curated pleasure to explore.
I am the new Euphonic (VIP) Director at UTOPiAfest. I’m excited to help curate the Euphonic experience, and lead the team that will make the experience as streamlined and enjoyable as possible.
