The festivities begin Thursday, October 25, and run through Sunday, October 28. This year's lineup, with 12 bands from all over the country, also features the best of Northern California's excellent music scene, with San Francisco based headliner Tea Leaf Green exploding nationwide, Brushfire Record's recording artist ALO, global music road warriors New Monsoon, and from the mountain shores of Lake Tahoe and host band Blue Turtle Seduction. With all of these amazing musicians on-site, there will also be a performance from Josh Clark's Guitarmageddon on Friday, October 26.
Building on last year's success, 2007's version of Las Tortugas has expanded to include three stages, featuring the JamBase Stage in the Terrapin Big Top, Tuolumne Hall and The Tavern. There will be nightly themes, including a band costume contest, as well as the Friday Full Harvest Moon Soiree, and a fan costume contest on Saturday at the Halloween Masquerade Ball. The magical woods of Yosemite National Park will encourage plenty of musical collaboration throughout the weekend.
The Thursday night kickoff party on the 25 will feature two sets from ALO, who will also be performing on Friday, October 26. Host Blue Turtle Seduction will play each night of the event. Headliner Tea Leaf Green will throw it down on Friday and Saturday, and New Monsoon will unleash their global rock on Saturday and Sunday. A full lineup of bands, as well as ticket and lodging (onsite and offsite) information, can be found at evergreenhalloween.inticketing.com. On-site camping and nearby offsite lodging options still remain; free shuttle service will be provided between offsite lodging facilities and the venue. With such a strong lineup located in one of the most scenic places on Earth, Las Tortugas II will certainly be one of the best and most intimate festivals of 2007.
