Son VoltProcrastination is a religion, but in this case, planning is the way to go.  The Snowbird Mountain Music Festival has an incredible lineup happening Friday, July 10th through the weekend ending on Sunday the 12th.

Dig this: the concert will be held at Snowbird’s new outdoor venue, the Peruvian Terrace, and will feature The Old 97s, Son Volt, The Cowboy Junkies.  Wow!  Taste in music is subjective, of course, but those three bands right there, combined with the beauty of Snowbird’s new outdoor venue make the Snowbird Mountain Music Festival a must see.  And thus, a must plan.  Get your lodging and tickets now.

The legendary Dick Bass laid down his vision accordingly. “My underlying dream for Snowbird is the creation of a year-round resort, which respects and complements the beauty and inspiration of this natural setting — a place dedicated to increasing human understanding through the enhancement of body, mind and spirit.”  Son Volt certainly encompasses Bass’ trinity of body, mind, and spirit.   Here’s the full break down as it stands right now.
