Returning to the beautiful desert landscape of Pima County Fairgrounds in Tucson, Arizona, Gem & Jam’s anticipated 15th annual 3-day music and arts festival is less than a month away, slated to take place from Friday, February 3 to Sunday, February 5, 2023. Headliners include legendary jam band The String Cheese Incident and psychedelic bass producer LSDream, as well as Gem & Jam veteran headliners The Floozies and genre-melding producer Emancipator. The anticipated event also welcomes back acts such as Funk band The Motet, electro-twang outfit Dirtwire, psychedelic dub producer Ott, saxophone-wielding bass producer SoDown, Canadian glitch-hop duo The Funk Hunters, and Chicago-house pioneer Mark Farina.
The fest’s new artist additions include Grateful Dead/Talking Heads hybrid tribute band Talking Dead, Michael Travis and Aaron Johnson’s nascent duo Snakes & Stars, Denver trip-hop live-electronic pair Since JulEYE, as well as an abundance of talented local acts. Located just south of downtown Tucson, the 640 acres that is Pima County Fairgrounds is nothing short of a captivating and magical setting perfect for hosting Gem & Jam Festival. In addition to musical performances festival goers can also expect to see interactive art installations, healing and wellness programming, and even gem and mineral offerings (as the festival coincides with the official Tucson Gem and Mineral Show). Check out the full lineup below and be sure to cop tickets to this festival if you haven’t already.
