The 25th annual High Sierra Music Festival will take place from July 2-5 this year, held in the usual Plumas-Sierra Country Fairgrounds of Quincy, California. Headlining the momentous occasion are heavy-hitters Umphrey’s McGee, John Butler Trio, String Cheese Incident and Joe Russo’s Almost Dead.

There will be family friendly activities provided for youngsters throughout the weekend, including art projects, field games and parades, plus plenty of local craft beer for their parents to enjoy. Camping for the event is included with all multi-day passes, and is available on a first-come, first-served basis. (There is also an off-site camping option.) Early bird adult 4-day passes are already sold out, but advance 4-day passes are currently on sale for $225.50. Check below for a full list of performers as well as secondary market tickets.
