High Sierra Music Festival

The High Sierra Music Festival is certainly one of the top festival options for people who want to enjoy their music in a beautiful natural setting. Held in Quincy, Calif., a mountainous location about 80 miles from the city of Reno, Nev., this fest's performances are framed by its namesake mountain range. The concerts kick off around the Fourth of July, with past acts including the Black Crowes, Micheal Franti, Ben Harper, Widespread Panic and Ani DiFranco. There are also craft sales, children and family areas, and even yoga workshops.
