After a year-long hiatus, Gem & Jam Festival is set and scheduled to return to Tuscon, Arizona this upcoming January 31st through February 2nd! The perfect start to 2020 awaits, boasting a journey of sight and sound nestled in the desert landscapes of Pima County Fairgrounds.
Rejoice, phase 2 has finally arrived! Gem & Jam’s Grateful Dead Tribute featuring: Michael Travis, Jason Hann, Eric Krasno, Mihali Savoulidis, Reed Mathis, and Todd Stoops, along with Michal Menert, Pink Talking Fish and over 25 more artists have joined the glorious 13th annual lineup.
For a festival with a relatively low attendee count, the production element and overall experience that is cultivated on these grounds is top-notch. Expect a sound quality that will rock your world paired with lasers, lights, and visuals that enhance the glorious schedule of performances. Year after year, Gem & Jam provides a place for the family to let loose and let the jams take over. And with a year off to recoup, this upcoming year is bound to be even more exceptional than ever before.
