Jai Wolf, Big Wild, and G Jones are just a few of the many names on the bill for Northern Nights this year! This 3 day camping festival set in the awe inspiring California Redwoods, from the 14th-16th of July, is set to be jam packed with music, art, yoga, and even a river! Northern Nights will feature 4 beautiful stages with incredible visuals, and tons of room. This festival is 18+ so leave your kids at home! Gates open at 10AM on Friday, July 14th.
Music is not the only thing this festival has to offer. As a camping festival, Northern Nights goes above and beyond with specialty bars, a 215 lounge, a fun field, and live art! This camping experience boasts it’s sense of community and diversity that make this particular weekend special. With the camp grounds 3 hours north of San Francisco it is close enough to be a relaxing drive, and just far away enough to avoid that pesky light pollution. Northern also encourages ridesharing; they will let you and your friends park for free if there are 3 or more of you. Parking is on a first come first serve basis, so make sure to pack your bags early!
