Welcome to our Info page.
The success of Mount Tam Jam this year and the potential for it to become a festive and beneficial annual event lies to a great extent in your hands. Given the sensitive nature of the environment in which we're being allowed to hold this celebration, it's key that you tread lightly, respect the mountain, be kind and courteous to your fellow concert-goers, and follow the few rules we ask.
Thanks for helping to ensure we're able Jam on Tam for years to come!
