Huichica (pronounced WA-CHEEK-AH) was started in Sonoma, California, in 2010 as “a new breed of micro festival built on the concept that dynamic, hand-curated music, wine, beer and food are best shared in beautiful, intimate settings with a warm and friendly attitude.” Among those performing in addition to the above artists are Purling Hiss, Woods, Entrance, and Mail the Horse. Children are encouraged to attend, and admission is free for those under 12. Camping will also be available.
