Hickey Fest is a 3-day independent music festival featuring 25 bands, community campgrounds, psychedelic projections and other relaxing adventures held in Leggett, California in Mendocino County, just 3 hours north of the Bay Area. Named after Standish Hickey State Park, where the South Fork of the Eel River shimmers against a backdrop of majestic redwoods, Hickey Fest takes place over summer solstice weekend: Friday-Sunday, June 15, 16 and 17– the 3 longest days of the year and somehow the 3 longest nights. With group camping at Standish Hickey State Park and bands playing across the way at The Peg House, Hickey Fest is a special summer treat. The Peg House features a shaded outdoor stage and patio area, a sandwich shack with vegan options and lots of tasty micro-brews on tap, and a general store for all your last-minute camping and grocery needs. Katie Colver, the Bay Area’s own favorite musical yogi, will offer Showga (yoga accompanied by live music) each morning. Lance Gordon will be lighting up the night with his Mad Alchemy liquid light show and psychedelic projections.
So pack your swimsuit, strap on your guitar and get ready for HICKEY FEST!!
Weekend and individual day passes will be available at brownpapertickets.com soon, shared camping included.
