It’s no longer a secret that Northern Nights Music Festival (NNMF) is Northern California’s crown jewel. It’s an escape from reality, constructing a community of friends and strangers alike over the course of 72 hours. Rooted in Northern California’s community and culture, their vision is to actively participate in the preservation and promotion of small business and the Cannabis lifestyle across festival grounds. The location is pristine, nestled on the historic Cook’s Valley Campground on the border of Mendocino and Humboldt Counties. Upon arriving, the lack of cell reception gives attendees the ability to completely unplug. The sense of adventure the location instills is like nothing else, with the freedom to dip into the Eel River by the River Stage, dance amidst the redwoods at the Grove Stage, peruse art installations, and seclude yourself in the sounds of the Silent Disco. Combined, the festival features a total of six immersive stages including the return of The Bunker Stage— a natural amphitheater overlooking the river.
