Jam band STS9 (Sound Tribe Sector Nine) will debut an intimate, four-day music festival next month dubbed Wave Spell, also the name of their recent album release.

With help from fellow organizers Euphonic Conceptions and Cervantes, STS9 has an art and community-focused vision of creating “a small utopia where the music and art flow constantly, nonstop at all hours, day and night.” Shows will take place across three stages including a beach stage with sunrise and sunset views. STS9 will play three “Wave Spell” sets and six additional sets, plus host live performances by edIT and Ooah from The Glitch Mob, SunSquabi, Manic Focus, Charles the first, Michal Menert, Electric Beethoven, Modern Measure, Prefuse 73, and many more. Furthermore, a supergroup dubbed the BAAD Quartet will debut at Wave Spell, consisting of Dominic Lalli from Big Gigantic, STS9 bassist Alana Rocklin, Lettuce drummer Adam Deitch, and Break Science keyboardist Borahm Lee.

“For those who don’t know, Wave Spell is STS9 in its rawest form,” said the band on Facebook. “Where we don’t write a setlist or talk about what we want to play, we just tap into the moment and let the music happen. We’re very excited to share in this experience with you–to feed off each other’s energy and make something truly special in the moment. Can’t wait to see where the music takes us.”

Beyond live music sets from a variety of electronic acts, the festival will also offer workshops, yoga, swimming, beach access, and camping. Wave Spell will take place in Belden Town, three and a half hours north of San Francisco on the North Fork Feather River in Plumas County.

General admission tickets and various VIP packages are available now, with the option to split the cost into two payments. There’s also a ticket giveaway, open for submission until August 1st, on STS9’s website.
