Sponsored by the nonprofit Roots & Branches Conservancy which is run by Mount Tam Jam executive producer Michael Nash, Sound Summit’s historic location is the same as the 1967 Fantasy Fair & Magic Mountain concert event which featured performances over multiple days by more than 30 bands including Jefferson Airplane, The Byrds and The Doors, and is often regarded as the first major American music festival.
