New Year, new home.
The Untz Festival is moving to Sycamore Ranch in Browns Valley, California. Celebrating its 5th anniversary, the underground bass family reunion keeps its same weekend, taking place May 29-31, 2020.
In addition to being 2 hours from both the Bay Area and Reno/Tahoe, the new spot is less than an hour from Sacramento and Chico, and mere minutes from Grass Valley. The immaculately kept grounds are the pride of Yuba County, which also boasts proximity to water features and a swimming hole.
The best news for bass fans is that music will be able to continue unimpeded through the night, culminating in sunrise sets each morning of the three-day festival. Sound systems playing the best in underground bass music is enough to bring fans in from all over the world, but we're most excited to see our longtime faithful fans and their crews who have been a part of our event each of the past five years.
Speaking of crews, The Untz Festival will once again feature takeovers and showcases from our favorite collectives and labels, with top-notch production and workshops, yoga, and art at the focal point of the event. On-site walk-in camping will be first come, first serve, as always, with premium car camping featuring electricity and water for those who want a little something extra out of their camping experience. RV spots will also be available, but very limited.
We are grateful for the four years we spent in our old location, but an exhaustive search of the entire state has landed us the perfect venue for what we do, and what our fans deserve. Home is where the homies are. Stay tuned for ticket information, and in the meantime, start spreading the news.
