There are no shortage of music festivals in Texas around this time of year. But the Trans-Pecos Festival is less music overload and more...desert pilgrimage. Held at the El Cosmico property in Marfa, Trans-Pecos features some expected adornments (camping, music) and some considerably less so (leatherworking workshops! sandlot baseball!).
Pre-registration has closed, but tickets are still available at the gates. The lineup includes M. Ward, Junior Brown, Tift Merritt, Hayes Carll and more. The full schedule is below.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism.
