California WorldFest 2018

 

Festival goers and music lovers from around the globe will descend upon the Nevada County Fairgrounds July 12-15 for the 22nd annual California WorldFest.

The popular music and arts festival is presented by The Center for the Arts, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization based out of Grass Valley.

With seven stages of music, more than 50 artists from around the world, and a full workshop and educational schedule, WorldFest has set itself apart from other music festivals throughout the region.

The festival’s extensive offerings include daily yoga, family and kids activities, a variety of educational workshops, and an artisan marketplace.

Onsite camping rounds out the true festival – going experience and allows patrons and their families a safe and convenient place to rest before the next day’s goings-on. RV and tent camping sites are available, and for all the glampers out there, World Fest will have luxury showers available for purchase onsite for the first time this year.

World Fest’s Global Indigenous People’s Village celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2018, offering attendees an immersive journey into the world of indigenous art, culture, and traditions. The village is meant as the ultimate tribute not only to the Nisenan tribes of the region, but to the many diverse cultures by which it is influenced.

Music industry magazine Pollstar calls the California World Fest a “festival of discovery,” while FestForum awarded WorldFest its “Innovation in Music” award in 2016. The Center for the Arts is well known in the local community and across the country for their premiere production capabilities, and World Fest is no exception.

More than 6,000 patrons per day turn California’s most beautiful fairgrounds into a world village where creativity and unity are encouraged, and where some of music’s most ground-breaking artists are welcomed each year.

A brand new main stage will be revealed at this year’s event, including an additional video screen, new sound, new lights, and a bigger performance space overall. Video screens have been raised higher, making for easy viewing no matter where you end up enjoying the show.

“Music brings us together,” said The Center for the Arts’ executive director Amber Jo Manuel. “It helps us understand each other, our differences, and grow to become a stronger community by opening our hearts to the beat and dancing to the music of the world together.”
