The Guitarfish Music Festival, held in Cisco Grove, CA in the beautiful Sierra Nevadas, is one of the premier family friendly festivals on the west coast. 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 play-shops 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 line up features virtuosic soul-funk from The Main Squeeze, the "Hendrix of the Sahara"; Vieux 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.

Mother Nature makes a wildly positive impression at Guitarfish.

An idyllic spot for a 'summer camp for music lovers.'
