Moab Music Festival

Location

The Moab Music Festival aims to merge music with the natural landscape found along the Colorado River in the vicinity of the Arches and Canyonlands National Parks.

With a population of less than 10,000, the city that is located between the two parks hosts millions of tourists each year. Moab's stunning, rugged terrain with thousands of sandstone arches and freestanding mesas – once known for massive subterranean stores of uranium deposits – draws adventure-sport enthusiasts now, including base jumpers, canyoneers, river rafters and rock climbers.

It also draws world-class musicians each September. The 20-year-old annual event was founded by two New York musicians who had vacationed in the area and were looking for a reason to return.
