The official Gem & Jam Festival pre-parties take place in Los Angeles in January and features musical performances, along with a sampling of the live visuals and art on offer at the main event.
The Tucson Convention Center, where the Gem and Mineral Show is held, is located along the I-10, roughly an hour-and-a-half south of central Phoenix and just 15 minutes away from the Tucson International Airport.
It’s hot, dusty and immersive. The lights and live art installations make Gem & Jam Festival not only a musical but heavily visual experience. Go with your ears, eyes and mind wide open.
