Satellite Ranch Music & Arts Festival 2018


As another summer passes by many will recollect their time spent making memories at music festivals. This past Labor Day twenty minutes outside of Scranton, PA Satellite Ranch held their second annual electronic music & arts festival at Mountain Sky. The festival kicked off Friday night with a pre-party, and the music continued throughout the weekend.


Mountain Sky is located within The Endless Mountains, which is a chain of mountains transformed by the Wisconsin Glacier nearly 15,000 years ago. The venue was built on 117 acres of picturesque landscape and acts as a great backdrop for a music festival. Satellite Ranch acted as a melting pot for hip-hop, dubstep, house, electronic fusion, and jamtronica. Featuring four stages, the organizers did well managing set times, sound, and stage production. Visual artists were painting, and performing throughout the weekend. Unfortunately, the local district required outdoor performances to stop at 11pm due to noise pollution, but that didn’t stop the music. The festival organized a silent disco, and indoor stage where artists performed throughout the night. This music festival has a great atmosphere and has the potential to grow in the coming years.
