Hippy Birthday To You: Gem & Jam 10th Anniversary Festival

These transformational festivals grow up so fast (sniff): On Valentine’s Day weekend 2016, Gem & Jam turns double-digits.

Tucson, Arizona’s best international gem show-oriented, (more than a) music festival will celebrate her birthday the way all crystal-powered, psychedelic warriors should—by throwing a 3-day dance party (February 12-14), replete with eclectic performance, gem and mineral vendors, and seriously trippy visuals, including those by moving-art bad-ass/legend Johnathan Singer of Fare Thee Well and Tipper fame.

Whether you venture (south) west for the jams—headliners include time-travelling onesie-aficionado and music festival stalwart The Polish Ambassador bringing booty-shakin’ electro beats; veteran funk-masters Lettuce, breaking fresh-picked, soulful, hip-hop infused grooves down live; and Beats Antique’s genre-bending, globe-trotting EDM—or the gems (and minerals, and crystals), Gem & Jam promises a transformative journey in the company of good-vibe valentines. (BTW: Don’t miss the Soulection stage if you seek sex appeal—if we’re lucky, Sango may even hit us with a Drake remix.)

Brew some bulletproof coffee and start your post-hibernation sun salutation: It’s time to kick up your dancin’ feet—and kick-off next year’s festival season—with Gem & Jam’s embarrassment of shiny, shimmering, and sonic riches.
