The Sierra Nevada World Music would like to extend a HUMONGOUS THANK YOU to all those involved in
making our 21st annual summer solstice and world
celebration one of the best ever.
The weather was perfect, the vibes were high and the music was great. All of that could be witnessed by the smiles to be seen on everyone's faces throughout the weekend.
Maximum RASpect to all the staff who worked
tirelessly to insure that everything went off
seamlessly, and to the hundreds of volunteers.
They were the ultimate Samaritans, not only in
greeting all the attendees with beaming faces, but also
in helping transform Boonville's Fairgrounds
into a majestic spot for a festival in the days
leading up to our gathering. We give thanks
to the people of Boonville for opening up your hearts and all of Anderson Valley
to us for the past 9 years now. We are
truly blessed to be able to call Boonville our
home and are looking forward to celebrating our
tenth anniversary there next June.
Big up to the medical staff for making sunscreen
available, handing out ear plugs and tending to the minor injuries (and
thankfully there were only minor ones) sustained by the patrons. We
are also grateful to our excellent security team that managed to keep everything
under control for the festivities, and to all the members of the
press, media and street team for helping to get
the word out about our world peace celebration
and for the excellent reviews of SNWMF 2014.
To the artists, ALL of whom came and
delivered powerful and moving sets throughout
the weekend we extend our deepest gratitude.
But, most of all, SNWMF would like extend a
heart-felt thank you to all the patrons and
attendees who choose to spend the third weekend
of June in Anderson Valley dancing to their
heart's content. Because, when all is said
and done, the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival
is really about YOU the festival goers.
This festival is
truly unique in the good people it attracts.
It is your smiles, your good vibes and the love
that is shared amongst the wonderful people in
attendance at SNWMF that keeps us going year
