For music lovers in the area, the 4th of July weekend means the coming of another annual tradition of spectacle, dancing and celebration – the High Sierra Music Festival! Occuring since 1991, the music festival will return to its home at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds in the scenic town of Quincy, nestled in the mountains about 90 minutes north of Reno.

This year’s lineup features headlining performances by Primus, Ziggy Marley, Jerry Harrison and Adrian Belew performing the Talking Heads’ “Remain In Light” album in full, and Greensky Bluegrass, along with late night electronic shows, collaborative music sessions, themed costume days, and a number of events taking place throughout the weekend.

Beginning July 4th and lasting through July 7th, High Sierra Music Festival’s festive atmosphere is centered around music with nearly 50 acts and performers spanning an eclectic range of styles taking the multiple stages. Though the fest has really created an environment where those attending can find the niche that most appeals to them – whether it be late night electronic producers performing late into the night, families taking advantage of many of the child-friendly amenities, daily guided yoga and movement sessions emphasizing physical and mental well being throughout the weekend, participating in the parades or fire dancing, or just camping out with friends and seeing the larger performances.
