It's Finally Gem & Jam Week!

Gem & Jam returns to Tucson, AZ for its 14th anniversary on February 4-6! The 3 day camping festival is held at the Pima County Fairgrounds and it coincides with the Tucson Gem, Mineral, and Fossil Showcase. The line up features top artists from the jam band world as well as the EDM world! Outside of musical talent, the festival is also filled with visual performances, workshops, and vendors!

The Music

This festival features a very unique line up that consists of a blend of jam bands, local artists, and EDM artists. The headliners for this year’s rendition include: STS9, Liquid Stranger, Lab Group, Claude VonStroke, Shpongle, and Lotus. Other sets you won’t want to miss include: Quantic, Maddy O’Neal, Wreckno, The Sponges, Dirtwire, SunSquabi, Opiuo, and Random Rab! No matter the vibe you are feeling, there will be a set at one of the 5 featured stages to match it!

The Experience

Gem & Jam is a very unique festival in the sense that it takes place at the same time as the Tucson Gem, Mineral, and Fossil Showcase! This brings in many unique craft vendors and opens the opportunity for many spiritual workshops. Some of the workshops offered throughout the weekend include: Wim Hof Breathing techniques, yoga, poetry circles, a flower essence workshop (you get to create your own healing flower blend!), dance classes, crystal energy healing, meditation, chakra healing, and herbal remedies! There are also more than 25 performance artists scattered throughout the weekend as well as various live painters who will be set up throughout the festival grounds! In between musical sets, workshops, and finding live performers, be sure to check out some of the vendors! You will be sure to find a lot of tye-dye, ravewear, crafted crystal jewelry, and cool apparel!
