“It is exciting to be able to showcase a lineup as dynamic as what we are bringing to Gem & Jam 2017. Couple this with our new venue, which now allows us to be a true camping festival and you have the recipe for the best Gem & Jam yet.”
– festival co-producer Josh Pollack
Located 20 miles south of downtown Tucson, the festival’s new venue, the Pima County Fairgrounds, is surrounded by nature and resides in a desert environment, creating an expansive setting perfect for Gem & Jam. The multi-stage music and arts festival will be offering camping options for the first time, including: onsite RV camping with hookups, boutique camping, car camping and walk-in camping.
In addition to this new element, Gem & Jam will be expanding on its experience with world-class visuals, unique stage designs, artist galleries, live paintings, experiential installations, daytime workshops, gem and mineral vendors and much more.
Desert Canvas is looking forward to interacting with and learning from artists, visionaries, creators and inventors from all over the world. We want to find insight on what all these right-brained creative maniacs do to transform their visions into reality. We also want to know the biggest milestones they are trying to reach in 2017.
We have been given the fortunate opportunity to interview (MUSICIAN NAMES) so be on a lookout for our aftermath coverage, as we will provide an extensive recap of Arizona’s most unique festival and share with you what we learned from the successful musician we interview.
General Admission passes are available now for $169, plus fees. Camping options will be available starting at $30, plus fees. Gem & Jam Festival is an all ages event. Visit www.gemandjamfestival.com for the most up-to-date information.
