It was a scorcher for the 21st annual Rockin the Rivers near Three Forks, MT. But, it sure sounded like a lot of fun. 3 days packed full of music and what seemed like a non-stop party. Concert-goers beat the heat mid-day by taking a dip in the river, or enjoying an adult beverage (or 2) at camp. While enjoying the cool evenings rocking out to some of their favorite bands from over 4 decades of music.

How did RTR get its start?

According to the RTR website:

A bunch of old Rockers and Cowboys who got together in 2001 and created a tradition of music at the venue site that would be known in the future as The Bridge. New partners have come, old ones have left but through it all Rockin’ the Rivers has remained true to the idea of bringing excellent classic rock to the masses in a 3 day festival format.

Our pals Joe Crain and Dave Lee were there to snap some pics of the bands, as well as some behind-the-scenes pics of what truly makes the 3-day party fun...The Camping.
