SOUND SUMMIT • SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 9TH, 2017MOUNTAIN THEATER • MOUNT TAMALPAIS STATE PARK  PHIL LESH & FRIENDS featuring BOB WEIRJIM JAMES (Solo)    JENNY LEWISPRESERVATION HALL JAZZ BANDVETIVERSound Summit ’17 celebrates the 50th anniversary of both the Magic Mountain Festival (the first rock festival in America) and the Summer of Love in fitting fashion as two pillars of the Grateful Dead join forces to headline an eclectic day of music high above the bay on the slopes of Mount Tamalpais.Phil Lesh & Friends featuring Bob Weir will be topping a bill that includes Jim James of My Morning Jacket, performing a rare solo set of material from both his band’s songbook and his own; sharp-witted indie singer-songwriter Jenny Lewis; New Orleans’ ever-joyful Preservation Hall Jazz Band; Bay Area favorites, Vetiver, and more!Produced as an annual celebration of and fundraiser for Mount Tamalpais State Park by Roots & Branches Conservancy, the one-day festival has raised $100,000 for Mount Tam in just its first two years. Sound Summit is staged at the historic Mountain Theater, a 4000-seat natural stone amphitheater with stunning views of San Francisco Bay and the Pacific. The same venue was the site of the Fantasy Fair and Magic Mountain Festival in the summer of 1967 – the Summer of Love –  a week before Monterey Pop. Over 30 bands including Jefferson Airplane, The Doors, and The Byrds played over two days to a buoyant and colorful crowd and unknowingly birthed a tradition that’s still thriving a half-century later. In that respect, Sound Summit is treading on hallowed musical ground and keeping the vibe alive for a resonant cause.As its name implies, Sound Summit is an intentional double-entendre – at once a musical gathering and an image of a strong and whole peak. In short, one exists to help sustain the other. Beloved by generations, Mount Tam is a treasure of our local landscape, an ongoing source of natural beauty, fresh air and water, recreation, contemplative activity and inspiration to the Marin County, San Francisco, and greater Bay Area communities.The success of Sound Summit and the potential for it to remain a festive and beneficial annual event lies to a great extent in your hands. Given the sensitive nature of the environment in which we’re allowed to hold this celebration, it’s key that you tread lightly, respect the mountain, be kind and courteous to your fellow concert-goers, and follow the few rules we ask of you.Our ultimate aim is to make Sound Summit an annual, sustainable revenue source, a festive event that honors the spirit of the mountain, its legacy, and its many gifts. So come join us for a day of great music and celebration a bit closer to the clouds and help Mount Tam continue to nourish and inspire. Consider your presence some good deed doing for a very special place in the neighborhood. We feel Sound Summit is as much a community spirit as it is a community event. Hope to see you on the mountain!TICKETS AND SEATING All Sound Summit Concert Tickets, Parking Passes, and Bus Passes are available on only (no Box Office or Phone Sales) and tickets will be sent electronically.
