Gem & Jam 2016Celebrating 10 years as the biggest collection of gem, crystal, and mineral traders, prospectors, and geology junkies, Gem & Jam Festival returns to 1102 W Grant in Tucson, AZ from February 12-14, 2016.

Long known as the biggest trade show on the planet for rock collectors of all shapes and sizes, the music portion of this gem show has exploded over the last few years, resulting in an eclectic, underground electronic lineup that's right up our alley.

Today, it was announced Beats Antique, Lettuce, and The Polish Ambassador will be headlining the 10th Gem & Jam. Also topping the bill are Tycho (performing a DJ set), Minnesota, and Ott.

Break Science brings out The Shady Horns for a live throwdown, and they're joined by fellow Pretty Lights Music artists Eliot Lipp. Desert Dwellers, Dirtwire, Govinda, and Delhi 2 Dublin bring out the world and psychedelic bass, and Exmag, Marvel Years, and Dynohunter further round out the live electronic hybrids.

The art is always key at Gem & Jam. This year, Carey Thompson will be anchoring the artist lineup, along with world-renowned VJ Johnathan Singer, who has most recently performed alongside Tipper and had his work projected at the Grateful Dead's massive Fare Thee Well concert at Soldier Field in Chicago. The full roster of live painters, art installations, galleries, and art parties will be unveiled down the road.
