Ahoy! Pirate Party & Groovin' On The Gallatin
by Brian Ripple | Monday May. 1st, 2017
Planning your summer adventures doesn’t have to be hard, the hardest part is knowing that there may be more than one festival happening the weekend you are looking to get away! From the Bridgers to the Gallatins to the Bitterroots, and every other mountain range in our area, the sound of music and happy festival goers will be heard this summer. Here are a couple to put on your calendar:
THE PIRATE PARTY
Originating deep in the back country of the Bridger Mountains, right outside of Bozeman, MT, The Pirate Party, presented by Musik Lives Here, has evolved over the last five years into the biggest pirate themed music and art festival in the Pacific Northwest. While Musik Lives Here has been producing The Pirate Party, it has encouraged and inspired many people from all walks of life, to come together and become part of their community. Surrounded by friends and family, where a spirit of self-expression and a celebration of the arts abound, Musik Lives Here’s productions continually strive to celebrate community involvement, with a strong focus on safety and professionalism, in order to keep alive the tradition of Montana outdoor music festivals.
This summer’s Pirate Party extravaganza is set to be bigger and better than ever before. With a wide variety of various kinds of art and music, allowing an “electric” edge; giving attendees the chance to explore, develop, and create their own inner swash buckling navigator of the high seas. From live painting and showcasing of local hand made jewelry, to captivating fire-spinning performances; patrons are sure to be sensually bombarded, and encouraged to walk the plank of their own artist within.
Musik Lives Here, HeadyWorks and DomeVizion present: The Pirate Party. Taking place July 21st - 24th - 2017 in Haugan, Montana. More information, a full artist lineup and tickets are available at: http://www.piratepartymt.com/
GROOVIN ON THE GALLATIN
Sept 14-17, 2017, will mark the 6th Annual gathering for Montana’s own Groovin’ On, a music and arts festival at Storm Castle Retreat center, 8000 Storm Castle Rd, in the beautiful Gallatin Mountain Range.
The first five years have been joyous opportunities to celebrate the beauties of our community and its surroundings, bringing together dear friends and talented artists from near and far. Groovin’ is excited to be taking the festival to even greater heights, and they want you to be a part of the fun!
From the beginning, Groovin’ has been built on a foundation of values: At the core of the festival is the endless pursuit of providing patrons with great music experiences courtesy of local, regional, and national acts. The Groovin’ mentality embraces creativity from staff, bands, and guests alike. It is part of the festival’s long-term mission to advance live event sustainability, while enjoying local arts & culture, and maintaining the beauty of the Gallatin river ecosystem.
