A record 175,000 thousand people from all over the world traveled to Butte for the Montana Folk Festival in 2014. In its fourth year, the 'Richest Hill on Earth' not only hosted a slew of internationally renowned musicians and visual artists, but unfurled its "Culture of the Car" celebration, demonstrating that folk art thrives everywhere. On the stage, the canvas, even the hood of a station wagon.
The 2015 Montana Folk Festival starts on July 10. To tide you over until this weekend, here's a great recap and slideshow about the musicians and the crazy art cars on display at last year's festival.
