Desert Rocks is proud to announce that the festival has moved to the mystical Jenk Star Ranch, nestled just one mile from the beautiful beaches along Utah's Green River. The Jenk Star Ranch is a privately owned parcel of land in complete desert isolation, adorned with magnificent giant sculptures and interactive art installations. The low-impact desert landscape features beautiful cliffs and vistas are perfect for this large-scale music festival's amazing light shows and booming sound systems. The town of Green River is central to SLC, Denver, and Vegas and has many fairly priced hotels. Green River also has an Amtrak and Greyhound Station, making it possible to get to the event by bus or train. The new venue is literally 90 minutes closer to SLC and Denver compared to the old venue at Area BFE. Desert Rocks will have a shuttle bus running between the festival venue, the bus/train stations, Green River hotels, and the beach! This means festival patrons have the option to "Go Green" by using public transportation. The venue is also the home of "Building Man - Sustainable Living, Arts, and Music Festival" (May 17-20) and "Melon Nights" (Sept).
