Music festivals are an entertaining weekend to be sure. I have two festivals lined up this summer - Under The Big Sky in Whitefish and a festival called The Minnesota Yacht Club in St. Paul, Minnesota. The festivals are loaded with great talent like Miranda Lambert, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Offspring.

Now, I have my eyes set on a third festival this summer. Wild Montana reached out to us to promote the 2024 Wildlands Festival coming up on August 2nd and 3rd near Big Sky.

This year's headliners feature four terrific acts with two, I dare say, of them classified as mega country stars.

Dierks Bentley

Maren Morris

Lukas Nelson

Wyatt Flores

Dierks and Maren would be worth the price of admission alone, but throw in Nelson and Flores and you have yourself a BANGING weekend.

On top of the stellar lineup, the Wildlands Festival partners with Wild Montana (an organization that strives to make a positive impact regarding public lands), the Greater Yellowstone Coalition (a group to preserve the beautiful landscape and wildlife of Yellowstone National Park) and the Gallatin Valley Land Trust (a group that maintains the upkeep of the greater Yellowstone area).

When you purchase a ticket, the funds will go towards helping the above causes fulfill their missions.

Last year the festival raised over $500,000 for "river conservation" through tickets, donations and merchandise sales.

The festival will be here before you know it. On its Instagram page, the Wildlands Festival kicked off its 30-day countdown today (July 3).




Tickets begin at $145 for a 1-day General Admission Bleacher spot and range up to the "Champion of Conservation" 2-night VIP pass with 4 guests coming in at a cool $9,000.
