It combines a top-caliber, eclectic music line-up with a variety of outdoor activities, personal wellness programs and arts and educational events. “Community at High Sierra is what has kept this festival going these past 17 years. Folks young and old gather with friends and family from all over the country to get that experience that only High Sierra can give. We are blessed with the most fun, creative, respectful, and enthusiastic fans on the planet. It’s hard to believe, but they are like a big family,” says Rebecca Sparks, festival spokesperson.
Nestled in the quaint town of Quincy, CA (3500 ft), the High Sierra Music Festival is a great place to take in swimming, hiking and biking amidst the scenic beauty of the majestic Sierra foothills while also enjoying a full palette of music offered on five daytime stages and five nighttime venues. The festival features intimate artist “playshops,” an interactive KidZone, daily parades with oversized puppets, fabulous food, Yoga, Pilates and dance classes along with the opportunity to just relax and camp with good friends in gorgeous weather and an adjacent Olympic-sized swimming pool. All of this combines to make the High Sierra Music Festival an anticipated yearly event and an experience for people of all ages.
