Have you experienced the Under The Big Sky festival in Whitefish yet? It's a fairly new festival but has quickly secured its place as an anticipated annual event for music lovers. This year's line-up has been announced by the good people at Outriders Present, see below for all the bands and artists playing in 2022.

Under The Big Sky isn't just music--there's also a rodeo, round-up, and a variety of activities that make it a true festival. Promoters like to throw around the word "festival" but this event truly delivers.
