Festival Description

The annual gathering that is the Harmony Festival convenes once again in the heart of Northern California to bring together the best of leading-edge music, art, and culture. For the first time in it’s history the festival expanded to three days and nights in 2008, — with expanded shows and venues, more on-site camping, and the best musical line-up ever. The “Harmony After Dark” nighttime shows feature three separate venues of music in one epic party zone, all for one price. And this year the Harmony Festival organization is privileged to partner with Live Nation
http://www.livenation.com/, the nation’s premier live music event production company, as the Harmony Festival’s co-promoter. The local division of Live Nation (formerly Bill Graham Presents) brings its long experience and much respected history of producing the Bay Area’s finest concerts and events to help make this year’s Harmony Festival the biggest and best ever.

Each year a festival theme describes the programming—through forums, speakers, and interactive exhibits. The Harmony Festival is also proud to team up with many other community-minded event organizations to help produce this year’s Festival, including: Peak Experience Productions; Mystic Beat Lounge; Solar Living Institute; Sunrise Center; Earthdance; Anon Salon, and many others.
