Officially kicking off 2017’s festival season is the eclectic music festival, Gem and Jam. Celebrating its 11th year bringing together music, art, and gems from all over the world, will kick off Thursday, February 2nd through Sunday, February 5th. This return is anticipated to be better than ever, as Gem and Jam has found itself a new home at the Pima County Fairgrounds, a 640 acre venue smack dab in the middle of the desert, just 25 minutes southeast of Tucson. This new location has a great intimate feel, now making it a “true” camping festival. Showcasing an amazing and diverse lineup of musicians, including Gramatik, The Floozies, Lotus, The Trancident, The Motet, and the Infamous Stringdusters, we’ll be sure to dance away the nights while filling our ears with magical collaborating sounds of electronic, funk, and jam.
For those of you who are not familiar with Gem and Jam, it’s the finale “festival” to the 3 week-long acclaimed Tucson Gem and Mineral Show. This show, being one of the worlds largest, brings over 55,000 collectors and gem and mineral enthusiast together once a year at the end of January through the first week of February.  Gem and Jam being the big hoorah combines amazing musical acts with live collaboration art throughout the festival, as well as visual performers and dancers to give a unique experience and a feeling of being apart of something spectacular.  In years past, American visionary artist, Alex Grey has painted live on main stage as well as well known Canadian visionary/street artist Chris Dyer. Not only does this festival pull together all of our creative juices, but also offer workshops to develop and grow all weekend long. Check out everything Gem and Jam has to offer over HERE.
