Las Tortugas III by Josh Miller
The premiere intimate West Coast fall music festival, Las Tortugas – Dance of the Dead IV, returns October 29 through November 1. Presented by Terrafin Entertainment, this emerging Halloween weekend gathering at Evergreen Lodge in Groveland, CA (located at the Western Gate of Yosemite National Park) offers a musician and fan friendly experience in an idyllic woodland setting dotted by cozy cabins, a restaurant and bar, a general store and many unique features. Las Tortugas offers a handpicked, quality assortment of diverse, jam friendly artists in a positive, engaged environment that’s quickly becoming a can’t-miss event in Northern California.
This year’s lineup features:
Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk
Tea Leaf Green
Hot Buttered Rum
Bag of Tricks (featuring Zach Gill, Steve Adams and Dave Brogan of ALO)
The Mother Hips
Blue Turtle Seduction
Dave Brogan Band
Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers
Pimps of Joytime
Poor Man’s Whiskey
Tistrya and Friends
In it’s fourth year, Las Tortugas continues to build on its core ideal of active, joyous musical pleasure delivered by road tested pros, who often finds themselves collaborating in unique combinations here. A strong sense of community infuses Las Tortugas, with daily themes, special one-off sets (like TLG’s Trevor Garrod‘s annual Sunday morning solo performances), quality, reasonably priced food and a wonderfully immersive feel where costumes change on a daily basis and the players have as much fun as the attendees.
