The High Sierra Music Festival is not a spectator sport. There are campground jams, or if you are feeling bold, you can make use of the free-for-all acoustic stage where you may even get a chance to jam with some of your favorite artists.
Get there early
The first day at the campground has been described more than once as a "land grab."
Enroll in a playshop
Take yoga, learn a few Allman Brothers song, or how to play washboard. The festival offers a full schedule of workshops to hone your skills.
The sunrise kickball game is an unforgettable tradition of HSMF and begins around 5 a.m., just as the late-night performances are winding down.
