Submitted by -Big Picture Media Tue, 08/11/2015 - 11:19 am

UTOPiAfest has officially announced the daily schedule for their seventh annual festival, taking place in Utopia, TX over Labor Day weekend (September 4-6, 2015). Weekend and Day Passes are on sale now, here: http://www.utopiafest.com/tickets. Tier-5 Priced Weekend Tickets are available now. UTOPiAfest has also partnered with REI, Real Ale, Lagunitas, and YETI for an exclusive Ultimate Camping Music Experience Giveaway, where one lucky winner will receive 2 All Access passes, a pre-set up campsite from REI with a tent, chairs, hammock, 2 sleeping bags, pads, pillows, and a lantern (for weekend use only), a stocked YETI cooler, free UTOPiAfest merch, and exclusive viewing from the Arrowhead Stage Eagle's Nest during one set. The contest ends this Friday, August 14th.

UTOPiAfest is a unique campout festival offering mind-blowing musical performances and West Texas Hill Country sunsets. Presented in a natural amphitheater on the 1,000-acre Four Sisters Ranch (between Garner State Park and Lost Maples), UTOPiAfest is a true alternative to the large multiple-stage festivals that often favor quantity over a quality audience experience. With only two stages and only 2000 tickets being sold, fans will have plenty of space to dance and enjoy full sets by world-touring bands from a variety of genres. Thoughtfully designed to allow creativity, music, and new friendships to flourish in a unique and intimate setting, UTOPiAfest is bringing back the basics by showing an unparalleled hospitality to both artists and music fans. Festival attendees can enjoy their free camping (cabin and RV lodging is also available), and while there are plenty of options for dining in their food forest, everyone is welcome to bring their own drinks and food under the festival's open BYOB policy. To purchase tickets and check out the full line-up, including Explosions In The Sky, Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires, tune-yards, of Montreal, RJD2, Leftover Salmon, Wild Child, Man Man and more, please visit: http://www.utopiafest.com/.

UTOPiAfest was founded on the belief that a music festival should be experience-centered. One set in beautiful, natural surroundings where the positive energy from the land is palpable; a place where you find and meet more friends than strangers. UTOPiAfest's CEA (Chief Experiential Architect), Travis Sutherland explains, "We think it should be more meaningful than just watching a show. It should be a place where individuals and communities grow and learn. Participants should feel free to be and express their truest selves, and contribute to the experience. They should be able to be in front of the stage, or have plenty of room to dance. They should be able to see the stage from camp, or be isolated from the crowd. Camping and parking should be free. We see fences getting in the way of a good time. There should be no music overlap - music bleed or hard choices between bands. There should be performances where the whole audience is absolutely attentive, engaged, and phoneless. At such a fest you can play a round of disc golf, attend a workshop or yoga class, or go on a bike ride before you see the first set. The experience should be accessible to all ages, and enjoyed with your whole family. You should never have to feel crowded or wait unreasonably long in a line. We believe you should be able to bring your own beer and cook your own food. We believe a music festival should be seamless, effortless, and timeless."

The festival is also offering a limited number of Hassle Free Tent Rentals, which include a pre-set up tent, cots or air mattresses, chairs, coolers, and a lantern. Festival merchandise, including t-shirts, tank tops, and hoodies, is available as well and can be ordered now, here: http://bit.ly/1DquTPu.
