Prescott's Whisperfest Draws Phoenix Bands, Supports Yarnell Firefighter Families

Located just an hour and a half north of the Valley, Prescott is better known for its status as a premier Christmas getaway than for its artistic community. With a population composed of more retirees than the average small town, it's safe to assume that its music scene is also a little dated. Whisperfest, Prescott's first DIY, nonprofit festival, is looking to change that for good.

Hosted by the recently formed Squirrelcage Productions at the Whipering Pines Camp, located in the pine-covered mountains above Prescott, Whisperfest, held over July 27 and 28, brings together acts from across the Southwest, including a number of Phoenix darlings.
