High Sierra Music Festival Releases 2023 Late Night Lineup With Galactic, Lebo & Friends, moe., and many more

Article Contributed by IVPR | Published on Wednesday, April 19, 2023

Some of the most memorable sets in High Sierra Music Festival’s three-decades-running history have taken place after the California sun had set; way after—sometimes when it was on the verge of rising again. The legendary late-night High Sierra show can take the form of a sweat-fueled dance party, swirling psychedelic jams and explorations, or full crowd participation singalongs, and if festivalgoers have planned accordingly and saved a little gas in their tanks, they’ve traditionally been rewarded with once-in-a-lifetime musical memories.

This year, the team behind High Sierra Music Festival aims to keep the sleep-deprived thriving with yet another all-star-ridden late-night lineup over the weekend of June 29th-July 2nd in beautiful Quincy, California. Thursday finds New Orleans’ funk torchbearers Galactic in the High Sierra Music Hall; On Friday, in an incredibly intimate setting, moe. will bring their long-loved dual-guitar invasion to the Funk’n Jamhouse while Lebo & Friends take fans on a “Yacht Rock” themed nautical journey for the ages in the Music Hall; and Saturday and Sunday find Lotus and The Nth Power back in the Hall on each respective night. The entire late-night lineup can be found below or right here. As in years past, late-night shows are separately ticketed events, and tickets for each night’s performances are available now at this link.

New for this year, HSMF will be offering a very limited quantity of wristbands that grant fans access to the full slate of High Sierra 2023 late-night shows. These wristbands can be purchased in advance at the above ticket link and will be picked up at the late-night box office. These non-transferable tickets are not eligible for resale.

This week’s Late Night announcement draws from an already stacked lineup featuring artists and bands like Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit, Thievery Corporation, Cory Wong, Neil Francis, Sierra Hull, and many many more. View the full HSMF 2023 lineup right here.

More About High Sierra Music Festival: Priding itself on a diverse musical lineup, one-of-a-kind intimate artist “playshops,” and legendary sit-ins and surprises throughout the weekend, HSMF remains the live music fan mainstay—a home away from home to pilgrimage to each year for a community experience of musical chances taken, all day and all night, on stages big and small. From the Grandstand Stage to the “don’t let out the air-conditioning” doors of the High Sierra Music Hall, festival-goers spend every day celebrating old traditions, as well as forging new ones each and every year. Craft brews and artisanal cocktails and cuisine to satisfy any appetite can be found around the clock, and kids never get bored of the daily parades, engaging Family Village, and the always-popular community swimming pool right next door. On-site yoga, Pilates, and guided meditations provide a non-musical lift for the body, mind, and spirit. High Sierra Music Festival continues to be the cradle of exciting music in the picturesque locale of Plumas-Sierra Fairgrounds in Quincy, CA—located an easy distance from major airports in Reno, the San Francisco Bay Area, and Sacramento.
