Hosting headlining acts such as Tipper, Big Gigantic, The Floozies, Twiddle, Billy Strings and more. Featuring artists such as Aaron Brooks as well as many others, there were all forms of art, which was absolutely beautiful. Taking place January 31st- February 2nd in Tucson Arizona during their gem conventions the weather was absolutely beautiful. In the city of Tucson during these couple months the city gathers crystal lovers from all around to sell, trade and buy crystals. During all the conventions they host a music festival for all, yes it was family friendly! From three different stages to choose from the variety of music was refreshing and new.

Beginning night one with Tipper as the headliner, he showed us a blackout set. All the lights were turned off besides the LED behind him. This made for a unique first night headliner. Opened up by Manic Focus and Dirtwire then followed by Mersiv, Mystic Grizzly, Tenth Mountain Division and many others this first night was stacked. Moving into the second day we had even more great artists to follow. Big Gigantic showed us a few new songs of their new album, Free Your Mind, which at the time was not yet released, as they headlined the night. Opened up also by The Floozies, Desert Heart TAKEOVER, Buku, SoDown and many others night two was insane. All three nights had a few late night sets letting the music go all through the night. Finally we have night three, which was featured by Twiddle. Billy Strings, Micheal Menert and more. All in all this was a great festival. A good start to the year before everything was put on pause.

This festival was truly one in its own. Every performance was completely original. Every artist had such a unique sound. The staff were great, the venue was beautiful, the food was delicious and the music was even banging. Balkan Bump, photo above, even showed us all an absolutely insane time. Later in the night going on to be a special guest with Big Gigantic he showed non stop performance all day. Above is a photo gallery from all nights at the festival from this year. This truly is a festival for all. If you love gems, music, and a good time this is the place for you.
