Tahoe Joy Festival digs in roots for 2nd year

Matt Axton & Badmoon | Silver Strawberry

Celebrate the North Tahoe music and arts scene with a free showcase of regional bands, youth performers, artists and makers, nonprofits, food trucks and breweries. Tahoe Joy Festival is a star-strewn highlight of Tahoe City Summer Solstice Festival and the kick-off to another summer of electrifying Concerts at Commons Beach.

Vintage rockers Matt Axton & Badmoon lead a far-famed, local lineup featuring Tahoma string benders Dead Winter Carpenters, psychedelic warriors Coburn Station, Tahoe’s wildest party band Vice Grip, mountain jammers Down the Rabbit Hole and the talented Tahoe Truckee School of Music students.

Tahoe Joy Festival is from 12 to 6 p.m. on June 9 at Commons Beach in Tahoe City. Proceeds from the event benefit youth music scholarship and community programming for the Tahoe City Downtown Association. | visittahoecity.org
