Inaugural Peak to Sky Festival rocks Big Sky

– Explore Big Sky –

In the final hours leading up to the inaugural Peak to Sky Festival’s Saturday lineup on July 6, Montana was right on brand—predictably unpredictable with a storm rolling mercilessly through the canyons toward Big Sky.

At the Big Sky Events Arena in Town Center, it seemed as if months of work might be undone by the sudden and powerful winds. Branded scrims tore loose from their moorings and billowed in the stage rigging. Trash bins tumbled through the dirt, taking down others like bowling pins. The artists and their families hunkered down in their tents as staff rushed to anchor flapping ropes.
