This year will feature the same caliber of entertainment fans have come to expect from this wonderful natural concert venue. The gradual slope of the land and foothills surrounding the venue meld together to produce acoustics that are unrivaled in the Northwest. Surrounded by spectacular scenery and perched high above the Jefferson River, 'The Bridge' is truly a Montana gem. Due to the successful events in the past and word spreading through satisfied fans, the campsites fill up quickly. We strongly encourage concert goers to buy their tickets and camping spaces early.
