Fort Desolation Fest is a three-day music and adventure travel festival at the gateway to Utah’s Capitol Reef National Park. All of the music takes place at night, giving attendees time during the day to explore the magnificent natural scenery of nearby Capitol Reef National Park, one of Utah’s “Mighty Five” national parks. 

This year’s Fort Desolation Fest lineup includes Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals, Shakey Graves, The White Buffalo, Morgan Wade, Houndmouth, Jamestown Revival, Madison Cunningham, The Brothers Comatose, Parker Millsap, and Pixie & The Partygrass Boys. 

The on-site campground is close to the music as well as the many natural features of the land and includes after-hours jams with surprise artists. For non-campers, there’s also plenty of other lodging in the area. The secret is out about this festival — get your passes for June 8-10 and book your stay before it's too late!
