Now in its 5th year operating as an organized music festival and fund raising mechanism for the community, it is proud of the community's efforts to enrich itself through this annual festival. The 2011 festival will be held at Lake Concow campground in Concow, CA. on June 24-26, 2011.



There are at least 15 slots reserved for Sonicbids artists to perform live at the festival. A variety of genres are being accepted, but the festival is looking for only California based artists. Artists must provide their own travel to and from festival, though expenses may be negotiated depending on artist. All submission fee money will be going to the not-for profit Wild Mountain Productions.



Benefits for Selected Artists:



  • Compensation is negotiable, depending on the artists' draw, experience, etc.

  • Artists will be provided food and access to the backstage pre-creation area.

  • Merchandise booths will be available for artists to sell merchandise

  • Artists will receive 1 festival guest pass per band member (valued at $50 each).

Past performers have included legends like international reggae pioneer Don Carlos (Black Uhuru) and regionally cultivated acts such as Mystic Roots, Spark n Cinder, Soul Union, The Resonators, Alli Battaglia, and many more.



The Wild Mountain Productions is a non-profit organization and is the entity responsible for the festival. The overall goal, beyond bringing good meditation to the festival goers through its music, art, dance and education, is to raise money for the many charities the community depends on for vital services.

Terms And Conditions

rule 1:
any persons, whether they are performing or not, are expected to maintain respect for themselves, wild mountain faire staff and especially attendees and fans. violations of this rule have occurred, although infrequent, and the result has been, and will continue to be the disrespectful party being escorted out of our party. this is a medicine movement, never forget that.

rule 2:
artists who we cannot consider self-sustaining in terms of draw power in our market will be expected to have a representative present for at least one of our preparation/promotion workshops.

we reserve the right to determine for ourselves whether this meeting is mandatory for you/your group or not. obviously, we are not going to fly international superstars here for a 'how to hustle' seminar, but for those groups within a reasonable driving distance who cannot claim a significant AND consistent draw in our market, these meetings are mandatory.

the point of these workshops is to increase the attraction power of our musical culture here regionally by expanding each and every artists' ability to make their presence better known and their voice better heard. this means better success for our festival's goals, a better show for fans, and a more exciting show for you artists to perform. no hustle=less than the best=not acceptable for us. this is important business and we take it seriously. all artists present will benefit as the open discussion will reveal untapped marketing and promotion strategies that you must know if you expect to be a independent(and successful) artist or group.

rule 3:
this is a family event, so keep that in mind when choosing the material you wish to perform at our festival. language is a tool of expression and we are open to its colorful use if there is a point or meaning, but be informed that unnecessary profanity or vulgarity is not acceptable in your material at the wild mountain faire.

rule 4:
volunteers are always needed to help the festival run smoothly before, during, and after the show and those able to volunteer any time are encouraged to do so. this is not mandatory, just good. also, volunteers can earn admission to the wild mountain faire by helping out, so simply recruiting others who would like to attend for volunteering would be crucial as well. this is more of a suggestion than a rule.

rule 5:
no pets are allowed to attend the wild mountain faire for many reasons. obviously assistance dogs are an exception to this rule, but being an artist does not make you an exception to this rule, unless the animal is in your performance of course:).

rule 6:
artists are responsible for bringing the necessary gear to perform their set. we will provide solid stage sound/monitoring, and even DI boxes and some cables, but any special cables, playback devices, amps/speakers or any other specific gear will not be provided. it creates problems for others when one arrives unprepared for their assigned tasks, and it reflects on the level of professionalism one expects of themselves.

rule 7:
please refer to rule 1 and know that it pretty well wraps it all up, does it not? we are looking forward to making medicine with you, so get involved if you think you can handle the responsibilities we outlined in these rules and regulations.
