Guitarfish Music Festival is one of the premier family-friendly festivals on the West Coast. It’s an intimate affair where lasting friendships are created, the element of belonging is tangible, and the experience is real. The music is diverse, and Kidsville is action-packed. Prime mountain biking trails, a full spectrum of yoga classes, lounging in the natural swimming holes, circus performers, music playshops and a World Market further inspire and intrigue. Discover your new favorite band and dozens of new friends in the mountain forest by the South Yuba River.
The lineup features virtuosic soul-funk from The Main Squeeze, the “Hendrix of the Sahara”; View Farka Touré, the high energy rock & reggae-soul of Thievery Corporation frontmen; See-I, the transcendent progressive intergalactic wizardry of House of Hamsa, the gritty raw funk of Katdelic, the super fresh funk-tronica of Greener Grounds, big, bouncy breaks by the All Good Funk Alliance, the otherworldly grooves of Liberation Movement, the newgrassy folktronica of Kuinka, the Soul-Folk-Acapella of Sirens of Soul, the Prince-meets-Stevie Wonder soul-funk of Gene Evaro Jr. and more.

Kidsville is brimming with interactive, hands-on projects happening throughout each day. Hooping classes, creation station projects, drum circles, music performances, and free-range art. Kids 10 and under attend the festivals for free, and young ones ages 11-16 get in for half price.
Mother Nature makes a wildly positive impression at Guitarfish. The Cisco Grove Campground is nestled in the Sierras, over a mile high for cool summer temps, offering a myriad of hiking and biking options, a natural amphitheater for a music bowl, swimming in the Yuba River, and forested shade for camping. An idyllic spot for a ‘summer camp for music lovers.’
