Durty Durham Hosts
The Sixth Annual
Jamnesia Music Festival

Full disclosure, the Clarion Content is 100% behind the Durham based, Durty Durham creation, Jamnesia.

The sixth annual Jamnesia Music Festival happens this Saturday, October 4th just outside of north Durham on Terry Road in Hillsborough. The beautiful idyllic campgrounds provide a sweet setting to chill all day and dance all night. The music ranges from the Rock-a-billy sounds of The Dagmar Bumpers to Hip-Hop DJ’s like Randle Trandle and Tennis Rodman to Durham’s biggest rock acts, Hammer no More the Fingers and The Beast.


There are a total of eleven musical acts on the bill. The music goes from 3pm until 2am. The camping is FREE.

You probably know Durty Durham from their extremely popular, curated EDM, Illegal Parties at The Pinhook. But they can and do throw down out-of-doors, too.

Jamnesia began in 2009 when a barely year-old Durty Durham collective decided to hold a field party fundraiser/music festival.  From such humble beginnings it has grown over time into a showcase for some of North Carolina’s finest musicians in a beautiful and historic setting.  Hosted on an idyllic forested property, Jamnesia has seen over 40 acts grace its stage over the last six years.
