(the intitial 2007 line-up has been announced; updated 3/16/07)

When you see footage or fictional video representations of music festivals in the 1960’s, they’re filled with campfires and camaraderie and creativity flowing from every corner. Close your eyes, and you can almost feel the energy of grass roots movements taking place at such festivals all across the country. This is what the High Sierra Music Festival feels like. It’s not quite Woodstock, but the four-day festival which includes camping out in the Northern California mountains and listening to singers who range from folk guitarists to electronica movement leaders definitely has that back-to-the-basics feel about it. In a good way!

The 2007 High Sierra Music Festival takes place July 5th – 8th and tickets are on sale now. Four day passes are only $128 through February 12th and then prices will go up. Line-up to be announced soon but past participants have included My Morning Jacket, String Theory, Keller Williams and Bela Fleck and the Flecktones. See last year’s complete line-up here to get a general idea of who might appear again in 2007.
