Woollystar Music Festival offers an exceptional natural setting for showcasing an eclectic line-up of music and film for up to 300 people a day.  Woollystar is for anyone who appreciates an intimate experience of live music, nature, and camping. With its stunning views of the surrounding Sierra Nevada, Woollystar Ranch provides the perfect setting for a weekend of relaxation, entertainment, and community.

“We want to give people the space to enjoy the music and the beauty of the countryside,” says founder Avery Hellman. Hellman’s grandfather was the man behind the legendary “Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival,” a free and noncommercial music festival held annually in Golden Gate Park.

Woollystar features performances from The Brothers Comatose, Margo Cilker, Qiensave, The Coffis Brothers, Ismay, Jenner Fox, Agouti, The Live Oaks, Wreckless Strangers, and Grammy-nominated Mexican American roots group Los Cenzontles.

A special screening of the film Space Happy, which portrays the pursuit of art against all odds and never giving up on one’s dreams, takes place on Friday evening. Woollystar ends on Sunday with 'select' sets from up and coming area performers, and a guided nature walk where people learn about and connect with the local environment.

Attendees have access to a range of amenities, including on-site camping, restrooms, and food and beverage options. Woollystar is donating 100% of proceeds from beverage sales to support the Alpine Watershed Group and Alpine Trails Association, two local  nonprofits who work to protect, conserve and restore the public lands of Alpine County.

Tickets for  Woollystar Music Festival are available now, and attendees are encouraged to purchase their tickets early to secure their spot.  For the full lineup and list of activities head to the official Woollystar Music Festival website at: https://www.woollystar.com/.  Hope to see you there!
