The High Land Jam will be August 23-26, 2012 (the weekend before labor day) and is one of the best small jam band festivals anywhere. Genres include jam bands, blues, jazz, alternative, bluegrass and solo acts. Selected bands are given 20 tickets to sell at $40/each and keep the proceeds as compensation. The festival is held on a 40-acre farm near Elkins, WV with two permanent stages, professional sound/lights, on-stage monitor engineer, two sound companies, and a hospitality barn.

Past performers include Vince Welnick, Perpetual Groove, The Recipe, Peter Tork, Bone Pony, ZEN, The Almighty Senators, GUTA, The Davisson Brothers and many other great musicians. Last year, High Land Jam chose over 50% of its lineup from Sonicbids. Their mission is to take really good, but relatively unknown, artists and give them a great opportunity to network with other musicians.

The festival requires bands to spend the entire weekend at the festival. This is not a "come play and leave right away" type of festival. They have a great hospitality barn for artists and camping for 6,000, including a very clean shower house.
