This summer brings Total Fest number 5 and it aspires to be bigger and better than ever with a new and larger venue, more bands, and five years of experience under the organizers belts! What hasn't changed is Total Fest's commitment to bringing together a diverse group of incredible bands and supporters for two days of (loud, quiet, melodic, atonal and interesting) music, conversation, swimming, hiking and barbecues. All this transpires in the Rock and Roll, Swimming, Hiking and Barbecue Capitol of the West; Missoula, Montana. Total Fest is proof that creative music and 'do it yourself' ideals are alive and thriving in a time of network television sponsored monoculture-rock. Total Fest has no spectators, only volunteers, musicians and supporters!

Missoula is a place that's renowned for the genuine and warm reception touring musicians receive. Maintaining that well-deserved reputation is the number one priority for Total Fest's organizers. Bands are paid 100% of the net receipts (after expenses) and activities including barbecues, and a day at the river are planned to bring everyone together to appreciate each other and Montana. Total Fest organizers are community volunteers who begin the planning process mid-winter every year, and are involved because of love fort the community and interest in ensuring independent music's continued importance to our lives here. Total Fest always proves to be a unique and pleasurable auditory explosion as each band plays (maximum) 30 minute long sets. Two stages are set up across from each other to eliminate set up time so bands can play one after the next with few interruptions. You are likely to hear country twang, followed by metal, followed by upbeat melodies, followed by undecipherable noise-rock, etc. Most likely attendees will hear a lot of sounds they love and a few sounds they never thought could be created by humans. And the Big Dipper will host the Total Fest family style Saturday Matinee and Record Swap, which starts at noon. This year's bands include returning favorites and many new surprises. There will be bands from all over the United States, as well as a mixture of Missoula's top-shelf acts.
