Over the past five years, Utopia Fest has built a reputation as the music festival for people who don’t really like music festivals. Taking place three hours southwest of Austin in Utopia, Texas, the festival prides itself on its diverse lineup and an audience capacity of only 2,000. With no musical overlap, free camping and parking, children’s activities and a B.Y.O.B. policy, this festival is one of the easiest to navigate. We’re so excited that festival director and native Austinite Aaron Brown took the time to share some of the acts on this year’s Utopia Fest lineup. Check out his session on the player below to hear music from Billy Joe Shaver, Wild Child, Father John Misty and more!  We’ll see you at Utopia Fest, September 12-14, 2014!
