Lauryn Hill

With world-class performers, a global marketplace featuring more than 300 vendors and 30,000+ attendees, the Harmony Festival is the West Coast's premier outdoor music and progressive lifestyle festival. Set for June 11-13 at Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa, CA, Harmony thrives by promoting the values of music, art, ecology, healthy living and spirituality as the keys to creating abundant communities and a vibrant planet. Repeat winner of The Bohemian's Best Festival and Best Music Festival Sonoma annual reader awards, Harmony takes place annually in Santa Rosa, recently named California's #1 "happiest and healthiest" place to live, and the country's fifth overall in healthy behavior.

The 2010 headline music roster features a very special performance by multiple Grammy award-winning singer Lauryn Hill, U.K.-based reggae legends Steel Pulse, New Orleans funk and jazz jam sextet Galactic, Slightly Stoopid, beach reggae band Rebelution, and surf skate punks The Expendables. As always, classic rock is represented on the roster and 2010 includes a unique presentation of the music of Frank Zappa performed by his son Dweezil, Zappa Plays Zappa, and the North Bay debut of 7 walkers, a new band led by Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann, among many more bands to be announced soon.

The 2010 initial key speaker roster includes internationally acclaimed "new thought" leaders including Dr. Bruce Lipton, a pioneer in bridging science and spirit; renowned mycologist Paul Stamets, visionary activist Caroline Casey, best-selling author Dan Millman, Peak Oil theorist and author Mike Ruppert, world-renowned saint and divine guide Pujya Swami Chidanandji, alchemical healer Nicki Scully, and political satirist, "cosmic comic" Swami Beyondananda.

Celebrating its 11th year, Mystic Beat Lounge - Saturday Night's Techno-Tribal Dance After Dark is recognized far and wide as the greatest dance and performance art extravaganza in the North Bay, where the majesty of Burning Man meets the artistry of Cirque du Soleil. This year's lineup features DJ performances by Tipper, Ott, and Beats Antique, plus Lynx & Janover and Galactic with special guests Chali 2na (Jurassic Five/Ozomatli) and Lyrics Born, attracting thousands of attendees writhing to a new edge of sound, light, technology and talent. Bringing unparalleled wonder and imagery to the music will be fire arts troupes Luminesque, Liquid Fire Mantra and Phoenix Rising.

Returning in 2010 is the festival's newest breakout attraction, The Eco Rally Action Sports Zone (formerly Eco Cup), featuring continuous skateboarding, contests and a public street course (BYO Board), and live music by skate rock legends Fishbone, rising stars The Expendables, plus a rare semi-acoustic performance by Slightly Stoopid and other very special guests. The Eco Rally brings a positive message and eco-awareness to action sports fans in the North Bay and beyond. Get involved, activate and go skate!
