Since 2007, the Women’s Redrock Music Festival has been attracting bigger acts and more people. The fest will be held Aug. 9-10, in the scenic Southern Utah town of Torrey. Attracting people from around the region, the festival is an intimate and personal experience unlike any other. On the edge of Capitol Reef National Park and other stunning outdoor attractions, Torrey offers a unique festival experience unlike any other in the nation.

While the festival is not just for queer women, it has an enormous lesbian and feminist presence, and this year indie rockers Antigone Rising and TOBY will headline. Other performers include Michelle Malone, ELLIS, God-Des & She, Jen Foster, Wayward Molly, Awna Teixeira Erika Luckett & Lisa Ferraro, Julian Moon and Jess Furman.

Passes to the two-day series are $80, and Saturday only is $45. Nearby hotel accommodations and RV/campsites – for the rugged types – are available, but festival organizers strongly encourage booking early as space is limited as hotels are already selling out.

The festival is an economic boom for the small town of 200 people, and it serves as a tool to change minds and attitudes.
