UTOPiAfest kept its chilled vibe for its 9th and final year at Four Sister Ranch in Utopia Texas. This festival is an experience I look forward to every year and hope the change to a currently unknown location will not lose its magic. This family friendly BYOB camping festival always brings a remarkable line up of talented musicians. This year’s lineup included Capyac, The Deer, Brownout, Antibalas and many more. Dr. John & The Nite Trippers performance of Right Place Wrong Time was legendary. Wild Child’s performance consisted of a crowd of ecstatic fans along with another UTOPiAfest proposal. Lettuce, the final performer on Saturday night jammed us into the morning with an extended set. On Saturday there was a soulful tribute to Charles Bradley whose 2015 performance at UTOPiAfest brought an experience like no other. I am happy to say I was there that starry night in Utopia to see his tearful yet uplifting performance. Experiences like that one is the reason I insist on sharing with you if you haven’t experienced UTOPiAfest you haven’t experienced life.
