HESTIVAL-goers will have day trip options to mountain bike, hike, or simply kick back and explore the local orchards before the group reconvenes for a daily Big B’s Cider at Happy Hour before a headliner band will take the stage and dance under the stars of the new moon.

We are stoked to bring these awesome bands to HESTIVAL: Mama Lingua & Dragondeer 4/28 and Sunny War & California Honeydrops: 4/29.
2023 will be the second year for HESTIVAL. After the fun we had in 2022, we knew we had to make HESTIVAL an annual affair. From rocking out to Rising Appalachia on the mainstage, hiking the Black Canyon, to our guided stargazing experience we had an absolute blast from start to finish.
