Utah’s Don’t Trip Campout To Return For Second Annual Gathering Of Music, Art & Community With Boombox, Daily Bread & More
Don’t Trip Campout will return for its second annual weekend-long celebration of music, art, community, nature, and wellness on June 10th-13th at Beaver, UT’s Eagle Point Resort.
Located halfway between Las Vegas and Salt Lake City, the up-and-coming boutique festival blends the best elements of outdoor culture with the alluring appeal of participatory and intentional gatherings. Drawing inspiration from the ethos of transformational festivals like Lightning in a Bottle, the soulful electronic soundscapes and driving dance floors of events such as Desert Hearts, and the community values and social fabric of the mecca of the scene itself – Burning Man – Don’t Trip Campout stands as another pillar event within the emergent culture.
Headlining this year’s gathering are rock and electronic duo BoomBox, as well as a well-rounded mix of high-energy electronic producers and live bands. Attendees will have ample opportunity to dance to the music from hip-hop soul producer Daily Bread, techno-house duo Gettoblaster, brass-based live electronic producer and multi-instrumentalist Balkan Bump, and Pacific Northwest live hip-hop trio Free Creatures. Additional artists include ATYYA, Evanoff, SuperBubble, The Dirtnap, as well as An-Ten-Nae, SWAYLÓ, and Simba Sax, who have all recently appeared on SLC’s Syndicate lineups.

“I think what Brett [Rubin] and Eric [Barnes] are creating is something really special. Syndicate was born from the co-creative efforts of the SLC community; it is what it is only because of everyone who shows up and participates,” Syndicate founder Adam St. Simons said. “I see Don’t Trip Campout as similar but on an even larger scale, including local collectives and promoters from the region who are tapped into the pulse of their respective markets and are in alignment with the culture that they’re looking to advance. I’m really excited for Syndicate to be a part of this year’s festival and to have two artists that I manage – Dekai and Simba Sax – on the lineup. There are also a few names on the bill who have headlined Syndicate in the past – An-Ten-Nae, ATYYA, Daily Bread, and SWAYLÓ.”
In addition to the music offerings, Don’t Trip Campout will host weekend-long wellness offerings and classes to its attendees surrounded by the venue’s scenic lake, hiking and mountain biking trails, and disc golf course. This year’s wellness program will be led by celebrity astrologer and spiritual influencer The Leo King as well as community architect and “yoga evolutionary” Kari Jaffe. Attendees will be able to spend their days with a schedule of classes, workshops, and discussion panels covering a wide range of topics and practices aimed at inspiring balance, growth, and connection.
Tickets to Don’t Trip Campout are currently on sale with weekend passes starting at $200 here. There is a limited quantity of RV and car camping passes still available. Attendees arriving in a vehicle will be required to pay a $50 environmental impact fee. For more information, visit the festival’s website.
