Headphone rentals are $10 per night, ONLY with a valid ID or credit card for collateral. We are excited to once again be offering the opportunity for people to buy regular headphones for $60 and custom headphones for $100! Regular headphone purchases come with a charger cable and a stereo cable. The stereo cable or bluetooth adapter connects to your phone or computer, so you can use them as regular headphones! Custom headsets come with a special graphic, bluetooth adapter, aux cable, and charger cable. Plus, you can just come by our booth each day to recharge your headphones for free. Investing in your own headphones this year, means that you will be ready for all future silent
discos at High Sierra or at other events. We look forward to enjoying late nights and kickball with you all!

From the very beginning, the art that enhances the High Sierra experience has been created by hand and installed with love by fans of the festival. We’re always on the lookout for talent, so if you are the creative type and would like the opportunity to see your work displayed on one of the High Sierra stages, please contact us. Several favorite stage sets and late night themes over the years were created by High Sierra fans who had never done large scale artwork before, but were inspired by the festival and went for it… with beautiful results!
We encourage all festival patrons to enhance their festival experience by decorating their camps and creating fun fashion ensembles!
