Montanans love to cut loose during the summer and enjoy themselves and one of the best ways to do that is a music festival.

Montana might not have music festivals year-round, but we do have some solid festivals that occur during the summer. People who love country music head to Headwaters Country Jam, or if you love Americana, you need to check out the Red Ants Pants Music Festival. Another Montana event that has been gaining in popularity is the Under the Big Sky Festival near Whitefish.

Maybe one day, a few of these will return, as it is now if you want to see all your favorite artists in one place you have to travel to different parts of the United States.
