Music festival announces bands


December 26, 2019

Skillet will be playing at next year's Rockin' the Rivers.

In August of 2020 the Rockin' The Rivers Musical Festival will be celebrating their 20th year at the event held at the "Bridge" near Three Forks. To celebrate the festival scheduled for August 13 to 15 organizers have recently been making lineup announcements each Friday and will continue to do so until this Friday, December 27.

So far acts announced have included Skillet, Georgia Satellites, .38 Special, Steven Adler of Gun N' Roses and LIT.

Earlier this year, co-owner Dave Hamilton discussed the popularity of the festival.

"It's a natural concert venue unrivaled in the Northwest with amazing scenery and awesome acoustics," he said. "The quality of bands that play at Rockin' the Rivers draws people from several surrounding states. The music appeals to a wide range of concert-goers."

Hamilton believes the people are what make the event special.

"They congregate in camps of family and friends and reunite with others for a now traditional annual escape. The camps are named, decorated and become centers of activities such as the annual Poker Run," he said. As one person said, 'It's a great place to go where everyone treats each other like family and new members are always welcome.' These friends old and new share a passion for great rock music all under the beautiful Montana Big Sky."
