Help Northern Rockies Music Fest

The Northern Rockies Music Festival is all about bringing great music to the Wood River Valley. For the past 38 years, this festival has thrived on the hard work of a small board that works year around to find exceptional regional and national musicians, intermix them with local artists and vendors in order to create a community event.

This event has continually given local artists a chance to share the stage with bands they admire while providing the entire community with a loved and timeless event in the quintessential small town of Hailey, Idaho.

Though the event continues to be a roaring success, the costs of continuing the festival is currently unapproachable.  Without further financial support we will reluctantly have to say goodbye to the festival for the foreseeable future. But we won’t give up without a fight!

If you love music, Idaho or just have some cash to burn, please, please, please make a donation and help us keep the music alive.

This event is the event that keeps us all together. I see many smiles every year. Back in the 1990's, String Cheese Incident played here at Northern Rockies Music Festival (used to be the Northern Rockies Folk Festival), and since then this tiny festival has come along way with the help from the community. Since the 90's bands and expenses have actually become "more expensive" and our economy hasn't been that great. Booking artists used to be a couple hundred bucks, now its a couple thousand bucks or more. If you love yourself and love your community, you will lend a helping hand to help the community keep the music alive! Your help now is what is needed, not next year a week before the show. Donate and give back to the community for all it has given you!

Hey everybody, we're working hard to keep the NRMF going for years to come...These last few years have been really tough, due to the economic crash and a whole lot more competing venues. We've struggled to keep our prices fair and reasonable so that everybody, along with their families, can attend. It doesn't cost $300 - $500 plus hours of driving to attend our festival. It's here for all of us. We want to keep it that way. Please help out. Please pass this on. It just might be now or never......

Christina Wood, I so appreciate your comment. I can only say that times change, infrastructure and bands fees cost much more these days and we've tried hard to keep the festival affordable: tickets are discounted on-line up until the day of the concert, children under 12 are usually free, we give many tickets away to sponsors, family members of bands, military etc. It costs more to see a show in Ketchum/Sun Valley for 1 band than an entire weekend at the NRMF. I realize that there's a feeling that we can produce a two-day show with quality touring bands while not charging at the gate simply because of where we're located. Alas. It just doesn't work that way. Vendors must be paid.

If it were a reasonable price & not $100 for a family of 3 to go for a few hours more would attend and the profit would be more. I used to go every year growing up, but it is too expensive now.
