Gem and Jam Festival will be returning in 2020 and has announced a flurry of fantastic acts who will be taking the stage on their phase one lineup!


After taking a short hiatus last year in 2019, one of our favorite Arizona festivals, Gem & Jam, is ready to return for another round. The 13th edition of this music, art, gem, and mineral themed festival will once again take place at the Pima County Fairgrounds when it returns in 2020. The three-day event will take place January 31 – February 2 once again parallel to the Tuscon Winter Gem Show!

Slowly but surely the festival organizers dropped the first offering of artists who will be performing over the weekend and it is already packed with some quality talent that will draw crowds. Tipper will undoubtedly bring a visual masterpiece alongside his bass-fueled trip/glitch-hop signature sound. While Big Gigantic is sure to stun us with his ever beautiful saxophone skills.
