Reflections on the Moab Music Festival 

Moab Music Festival Ranch Concert

What to know
You may have been to some fine musical venues in your lifetime, but until you’ve had sandstone walls serve as your acoustics, you haven’t lived.
Making the most of its natural surroundings, the Moab Music Festival proudly sets up shop in various outdoor and indoor venues in Utah’s Colorado Plateau for a multi-day fest of piano concerts, family shows and musical hikes. But while names like Bela Fleck stand out on this year’s calendar, truthfully speaking, it’s the red-rock cliffs surrounding the stages that are the real stars.

Moab Music Festival - Event of the Month
The Moab Music Festival, founded in 1992, uses the tag line "music in concert with the landscape". That's no idle boast. Many of the concerts are set amidst the vast wilderness of the nearby Arches and Canyonlands national parks. Using the natural acoustics of rock formations, the festival offers a range of chamber music played by top-notch ensembles.
