Highberry is an homage to two festivals that directly inspired their event. High Sierra and Rothbury festivals were usually held over Fourth of July weekend (or thereabouts) and, since this group of friends couldn’t make the trip to either of those festivals, they started their own, blending the spirit of both large festivals into a down-home Ozark-styled interpretation. In 2016, it was moved to Mulberry Mountain, the former site of Wakarusa, but this year sees Highberry down the road a piece at The Farm, just south of the Missouri state line.
