10 Reasons You Can’t Miss Northern Nights This Year

July 10th, 2017


Northern Nights festival takes place in Northern California from July 14th to 16th this year. This incredible festival features picturesque landscapes, an epic lineup, and some of the best vibes around – it’s not to miss! Check out these ten reasons we think you should head to Humboldt County this July.


1. You’d miss the Living Legends Perform as a full group for the first time in 10 years.

2. You’ll miss an amazing eclectic lineup including: indie electro producer Jai Wolf, Southern funk duo Cherub, Foreign Family Collective’s Big Wild and the bass-heavy G Jones.



3. You won’t be able to stretch your dance-weary limbs under the shade of magnificent redwoods at one of the many yoga classes offered throughout the weekend.

4. You won’t be able #B.Y.O.F. (Bring Your Own Floatie)  and glide down the river to the soulful sounds permeating the breezy air from any of the four dynamic stages.
