On October 14-16, Utopia Fest returns to Reveille Peak Ranch in Burnet, about an hour northwest of Austin, for its twelfth go-around. Compared to most music festivals, Utopia is a more intimate experience: tickets are capped at 1000, there’s no music overlap, and festival-goers can explore the 1000-acre ranch (if you’re keeping score, that’s one acre to every person). Offerings include camping, hiking, mountain biking, and of course live music.

This week on My KUTX, fest organizer Travis Sutherland returns to preview Utopia’s lineup, which includes Shinyribs in his Utopian debut, Matthew Logan Vasquez, Doug Sahm collaborator Augie Meyers, and more. Hear My KUTX on Saturday, September 4, or listen any time in the player above.
