Powellapalooza Beach Party brings a lineup of more than 90 groups to the scenic shores of Lake Powell for a four-day fest of ear-tickling music, fireworks, and lakefront antics. Headliner Slightly Stoopid will bring its genre-mixing mélange of rock and reggae to the Peace Tea Stage (September 24 from 9 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.), with Yonder Mountain String Band (September 23 from 8:15 p.m. to 9:45 p.m.) gracing the same venue the night before to blend mandolin and banjo with a backing chorus of billy goats. A full schedule heralds the entire lineup of bands in all its diverse glory.
Twelve Powellapalooza venues enable listeners to catch sound waves at a variety of proscenia, including the beachside Antelope Point stage and the Solar-Powered Electronic Village, a gargantuan pirate ship with two DJ booths and a cannon that shoots cartoon quarter notes into the crowd. VIP passes up the ante with exclusive backstage access, complimentary food and drink, and a massage tent offering back rubs. A slew of local activities provide nonmusical diversion, with pass-holder discounts on river rafting, hot air balloon rides, and tours of boats and the bands’ equipment trucks. Additional attractions include Burning Man art cars, camping, houseboat rentals, fireworks, a light show, and a number of vendors.
