"Roots of the Rocks Music Festival" will take place June 13-16 just outside of Moab, Utah at the festival venue "Area BFE", this is the magical venue that launched the Desert Rocks and Powellapalooza Music Festivals!

The event is aimed at both celebrating and stengthening the foundation of the Southern Utah musical movement that spawned the Desert Rocks Music Festival, the Powellapalooza Music Festival, and that provided great support to the Cosmonauts in their creation of the SoLLun, Building Man, and Melon Nights.

The Gathering is geared towards providing an amazing desert festival experience to the event patron while at the same time providing regional bands, dj's, artists, vendors, and performers the exposure they need to further their careers.

Roots of the Rocks Musical Gathering is the very definition of a grassroots event. At the gathering you will find some of the top up and coming talent from the Western United Stated, with a focus on the four corners region.

Overview: Held just south of Moab, Utah, on a dirt road off of Highway 191 the Desert Rocks music festival is jam packed with brilliant local musicians and bands. Sponsors, press, street teams, volunteers and event planners band together to make this fest happen each Memorial Day weekend. Not only is it a great concert but the phenomenal desert setting boosts the "oomph" factor of the event up another decibel.

When: Each Memorial Day weekend

Where: 8 miles south of Moab

Fees: Ticket prices vary

Details: Once inside, parking and over night camping is free but they are on a first come, first serve basis. Desert Rocks also asks that guests please keep in mind their environment. There are various desert animals scampering about so concert goers are encouraged to use caution. Just use common sense, stay replenished, be as safe as possible and you can't go wrong. Now sit back, relax and enjoy the music.

Directions Head South through Moab on Highway 191, go 8.8 miles past the Shell Station at the South end of town, PLEASE COUNT THE MILES, No wrong turns! Turn left onto dirt road, travel 2.8 miles until the BFE gate on the left. There will be signs all the way there!
