Fort Desolation Fest is a music and adventure-travel festival that takes place every summer in Torrey, Utah – the gateway to Capitol Reef National Park. The festival invites adventurers from all over the country to explore the beautiful national park landscapes by day and enjoy music by night before camping under the stars.
This year’s festival features 10 national acts, including three-time Grammy Award winner Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals, Shakey Graves, The White Buffalo, Morgan Wade, Houndmouth, Jamestown Revival, Madison Cunningham, The Brother Comatose, Parker Millsap, and Pixie & The Partygrass Boys.
Concert attendees can reserve an on-site camping spot to experience the festival in its full glory. Like last year, there will also be a B-Stage in the festival area and the after-hours campground stage with surprise artists. From corn-hole throw-downs to campsite cook-offs to cocktail hours, there’s a lot happening on the campground.
This year’s festival takes place June 8-10. Tickets are on sale now. Make sure to follow Fort Desolation on Instagram and stream their 2023 Festival playlist below.
