High Sierra Music has been recognized for over two decades for its trademark sense of community and annual traditions among festival goers and music lovers. The picturesque location, the wide variety of artists, the unique musical settings at affordable prices all combine to make High Sierra the ultimate, intimate festival experience and premier four-day camping and music event in North America.

Nestled in the quaint town of Quincy, CA (3,500 ft), the High Sierra Music Festival offers a variety of outdoor activities, personal wellness programs and arts and educational events. The scenic beauty of the Sierra foothills is a great place to take in swimming, hiking and biking while also enjoying a full palette of music offered on multiple daytime stages and multiple nighttime venues. The Festival features intimate artist “playshops,” an interactive Family Area, daily parades with oversized puppets, fabulous food with no waiting lines, Yoga, Pilates and dance classes along with the opportunity to just relax and camp with good friends in gorgeous weather along with an adjacent Olympic-sized swimming pool making the High Sierra Music Festival an anticipated yearly event and an experience for people of all ages.

High Sierra organizer Rebecca Sparks says, “What sets High Sierra apart is the sense of community people feel when they come to the festival. Many folks have made this an annual destination with friends and family to just unplug for the weekend, ditch their car for four days, and just enjoy.”


High Sierra Music has been producing world-class music festivals since 1991. An independent production company based in Berkeley, CA, the organization was founded with the first High Sierra Music Festival, its cornerstone event that takes place every July 4th weekend in Northern California, and remains committed to its grassroots beginnings by drawing support from its loyal community of patrons, staff, volunteers and non-corporate sponsors. Additionally, High Sierra has produced events in Georgia, Massachusetts, Missouri and Las Vegas, and presents concerts in San Francisco and the Lake Tahoe area.
