There are no shortages of festivals to choose from, especially if you are a California resident. While Coachella and Stagecoach steal the headlines, it’s the smaller, more intimate festivals where one can truly let loose. This is especially true for the eclectic Northern Nights Festival (July 14-16) located only three hours north of San Fransisco in the famed “Emerald Triangle” at Cook’s Valley Campgrounds on the Humboldt/Mendocino county line.

The folks at the Northern Nights Festival are pleased to bring back a newly expanded version of last year’s pioneering, 420-friendly Medical Marijuana Zone known as the “Tree Lounge” located in the center of the festival. This is the place to enjoy some kind buds while jamming out to some of the most sought after entertainers.

Northern Nights Festival Line Up

The artists headlining the Northern Nights Festival include famed acts such as Living Legends, Jai Wolf, Cherub, Big Wild, G Jones, Dirtwire, Random Rab, Justin Jay’s Fantastic Voyage and over 90 more acts to enjoy in the surreal environment of the Redwoods.

About Nights Music Festival A three-day celebration of music, art, food and local culture, the annual Northern Nights Music Festival (NNMF) takes place every third weekend in July, this year falling on July 14th-16th. Now entering its fifth year, NNMF has created its home along the South Fork Eel River at Cook’s Valley Campground, 3.5 hours north of San Francisco at the intersection of Mendocino and Humboldt counties.

Northern Nights Festival grounds

With a passion for celebrating emerging underground music and featuring the most sought-out producers and DJs from around the globe,the luminaries behind NNMF, San Francisco-based BLAP Productions and Humboldt’s World Famous Productions, first came together in 2013 to achieve their vision. As their vision – and the festival – grew, the team welcomed production houses EPIC (Chico), Burningleaf Productions (Humboldt), Eye Heart SF (San Francisco), and Euphoric Styles (Santa Cruz), who collectively strive to sustain NNMF as a premiere destination experience.

Northern Nights Festival Camping

Offering attendees a unique opportunity to fully embrace a truly Californian experience and aligning with the history and tradition of previous festivals in the region, a portion of Northern NMF proceeds from ticket and beverage sales are donated to the Mendocino and Humboldt school districts, nonprofits, and environmental groups.
