Utopia Fest has announced the lineup for this year’s event, with headliners including electronica duo Ratatat, adventurous bassist Victor Wooten and eclectic indie-rockers Thao & the Get Down Stay Down.
The Hill Country festival, held in the small town of Utopia about 150 miles southwest of Austin, this year goes up against the Austin City Limits Music Festival’s first weekend. Music runs from Sept. 29-Oct. 2; the $169 Friday-Sunday pass includes three days of camping, with tickets to Thursday’s pre-party an extra $49. The festival’s main website was down for much of Tuesday but its ticket-selling site remained active.
Austin acts on the bill include White Denim, Golden Dawn Arkestra, the Deer, Echocentrics and Warren Hood.
