UTOPiAfest Down In The Oaks on November 2-4, 2018. (Pre-party on the 1st).
The tenth iteration of the festival will feature a lineup of world class artists, that include STS9, Patty Griffin and Lukas Nelson headlining the weekend, along with a strong showing of some of Austin’s best up and comers.
Early bird pricing is in effect, so don’t delay getting tickets at the best price of the year.
UTOPiAfest Down In The Oaks will be a continuation of the elements we’ve all enjoyed at Four Sisters –
The Vibe! – You can expect to see many familiar faces on the crew, and in the campgrounds.
Two stages, no overlap.
Intimacy – While we will embrace a natural growth in the family, we will still cap the crowd at a comfortable level, with plenty of space to dance.
Free Camping and Parking – When you get a weekend pass, you have the option to park (if carpooling) and tent camp for free.
Diverse lineup. Expect a wide variety of national and world touring bands, with a good representation of the Austin scene.
Late night parties. Introducing Goodtimes Grove, the return of Team Goodtimes, presenting late night all unplugged, completely shushed sets from artists on the lineup and beyond. The silent disco will be greatly upgraded and expanded.
Food Options – You can bring and cook food for the weekend, or enjoy delicious selections in the Food Forest.
Family Friendly – We will expand the Kids Camp, and maintain an environment where kids of all ages are safe to roam.
~~~~Here are some of the exciting new elements to look forward to~~~~
The new space – This carefully cultivated venue is on a privately owned ranch. It consists of four vast, majestic wide open fields, enriched by numerous ancient oak, elm, and pecan tree groves. The land is rejuvenated by a natural spring river fork and ponds throughout. The space is comfortably secluded, with the same clear view of the Texas night sky.
Easier access – We can’t reveal the specific location just yet, but the new home is around an hour’s drive from Austin, where most of us call home. There will be shuttle service from Austin at multiple locations. Details and passes coming soon.
Port-Os – We will be dedicated to a clean, sanitary, and convenient Port-O experience. We will also be introducing Air Conditioned Bathroom Trailers (available with Live Oak upgrades).
