The Red Ants Pants Music Festival is produced by and benefits the nonprofit Red Ants Pants Foundation which, to date, has provided more than $85,000 in grants to projects that support women’s leadership and enrich rural, agricultural communities. At the Red Ants Pants Music Festival, folks from far and wide gather in a cow pasture for four nights and three days of music, community and awe-inspiring sunsets. This year, The Bellamy Brothers, Lucina Williams, Asleep At The Wheel, Shooter Jennings & Waymore’s Outlaws, Turnpike Troubadours, Parker Millsap, James McMurtry and many more will take to the Festival stage. Full lineup here.

Join us July 27th – 30th in White Sulphur Springs. Come connect with good folks and celebrate rural Montana.
