The history of High Sierra dates back to July 4 – 7, 1991; when the festival was held in Leland Meadows, California. HSMF has been held over July 4th weekend or close to it ever since. In 1998, the event moved to Plumas-Sierra Fairgrounds and the site has hosted High Sierra ever since with the exception of 1999. High Sierra trademarks include intimate Artist Playshops and songwriter-driven Troubadour Sessions. Stay tuned for the playshop and Troubador Sessions lineups as well as the slate of separately-ticketed late night concerts. Outside of the music, festival-goers can enjoy yoga, pilates, dance classes, family activities and daily parades.
