The Plumas County Board of Supervisors held two public hearings May 21 and then approved a trio of music events slated for this summer.
Two of the music festivals will be held in Belden — “Priceless” and “Sunset Campout.” The third to receive the official stamp of approval is the High Sierra Music Festival.
Richard Folen, the applicant for the Belden events, told the supervisors, “These are well-established festivals; they are usually pretty calm.”
The festival applications detailed provisions for security, food and water, sanitation, medical aid, parking, traffic control, lighting, camping and trash removal.
Folen was the only person to speak during the public hearing, but the supervisors received a written protest from Belden resident Darrel Smith.
“The Belden events continue to be a nuisance in the canyon because of the resort’s failure to follow rules and years of security failure,” Smith wrote.
Smith expressed concerns about the lack of security, the number of attendees and the fire evacuation plan.
The supervisors approved the two Belden events without discussion.
Priceless is scheduled for July 4 – 7 with an estimated attendance of 800 including staff, participants and spectators.
Sunset Campout is set for July 19 – 22 with an estimated 1,100 expected to attend including staff, participants and spectators.
The supervisors also approved the High Sierra Music Festival without discussion. It will be held July 4 – 7 at the fairgrounds in Quincy and is expected to draw 8,000.
Backers of the well-established festival provided details for all aspects of the festival and addressed capacity. “In the event the festival is sold out, excess spectators will be turned away at the box office,” the application read.
