As music festivals go, this is a biggie. Delighting music fans, for now, three decades, the High Sierra Music Festival is one of the largest music festivals in the country.
But it’s about much more than the music, rather a total mind, body, and spirit experience (think yoga, pilates, and “Holistic Hoopdance”) like none other!
Held in Quincy, California, a little less than a 3-hour drive north of Sacramento, the High Sierra Music Festival celebrates its 30th anniversary from June 30 to July 3.
Throngs of fans come from all over the country to enjoy close to 50 bands performing over the course of the four-day festival.
The wide variety of musical performances here is astounding, offering something for everyone.
From Rock ‘n Roll to the Blues, R&B, Soul, Hard Rock, Jazz, and more, from both well-known national acts and regional favorites, you can enjoy it here.
There are so many talented artists who appear, that often the biggest decision of the day is who to enjoy when!
The Big Meadow and Grandstand Stage are just two of the performance areas. Artist Playshops offered at the festival are popular because they offer unique opportunities for a wide array of music creativity between the designated performers and/or based on a specific music genre theme.
Late night shows are plentiful as well.
These take place in the festival’s High Sierra Music Hall and Funk ‘n Jamhouse. And special Troubadour Sessions are designed to provide a more intimate setting where festivalgoers can get closer to the artists in a round-robin fashion.
