A Big Stage under a Big Sky

Red Ants Pants Music Festival is inspiring a music revolution in the mountains of Montana

"The inception of it was really an idea to bring people together," said Sarah Calhoun, "and music is such a powerful tool to do that."

In The Perfect Fit, the newest installment in the Discover Your #MontanaMoment video series from the Montana Office of Tourism and Business Development, business owner Sarah Calhoun is bringing together music lovers of all ages in Montana. Calhoun is the founder and organizer of Red Ants Pants Music Festival, a three day music festival that celebrates the spirit of Montana and the close-knit community it inspires.

Located just a short drive from Helena and Bozeman in the town of White Sulphur Springs, Red Ants Pants Music Festival brings together family, travelers from across the country, and some of the biggest names in music for an unforgettable concert under the stars in Big Sky Country. This year's festival will be July 27-30.

"We all need to make time to celebrate," said Calhoun. "And to do it in such a genuine rural setting is such a magnificent way to bring folks together."
