Guitarfish is billed as an intimate camping and music experience in a magical Sierra Nevada setting, more than a mile high, in the woods on the South Fork of the Yuba River.

Known for a funk-tastic, groove fueled musical line up, the experience includes an action packed kidsville and family camp, swimming holes a short stroll from the stages, access to world class mountain and road biking routes, music playshops, a world market, yoga classes from sunrise to sunset, hiking and more.

“Camping amongst family and friends, while witnessing inspired live music in a natural setting, truly enriches lives and fuels the heart,” organizers said.

“We’re thrilled to team up with our friends from the Joshua Tree Musical Festival family. (That festival) is held twice a year, May and October, in the shadows of the otherworldly Joshua Tree National Park. Together we believe that music is power, and community is crucial.”
