UTOPiAfest 2017, Four Sisters Ranch, Utopia, TX: Photos – Write-up


Written by Nicole


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.
