Every summer, my friends and I hit the road and head to Whitefish for the Under the Big Sky Festival. It has become an annual tradition. Americana music fans from all over the country make the trip to Montana to see their favorite artists perform.

Big Mountain Ranch in Whitefish is an ideal place for a music festival and is unlike any other music venue in the world. The festival grounds are surrounded by thick groves of pine trees with scenic mountain views all around. If you plan on attending the Under the Big Sky Festival in 2023, we'd highly recommend making your lodging arrangements sooner than later. Photo Credit: Under the Big Sky Festival
