Turn it up for two music fests on tap this weekend. At the northeastern end of the county, on the outdoor stage at Willow Creek's China Creek Cottages, the Unity Music Fest is grooving along Saturday, July 21 from 1-10 p.m. ($25, $20 advance, $5 for kids 5 to 12, free admission to all active firefighters from Burnt Ranch to Orleans). Enjoy a full day of live music from Woven Roots, Apiary, Cadillac Ranch, Bluff Creek Boys and Crooked Trees. Plus plenty of beer, wine and food, and a lively kids zone featuring the zany clowns from Circus Nature. Bring lawn chairs or blankets and secure your spot at this benefit for Mountain Community and Culture, a nonprofit united with Dream Quest to help build a community center in Willow Creek.

Down at Cooks Valley Campground comes a three-day music festival when the EDM-heavy Northern Nights Music Festival gets thumping July 20-22 with camping, music, art, food, yoga and, of course, floating the river to the beat ($169 and up. Tickets at www.northernnights.org). Some years back, a group of music lovers from the Bay Area and Humboldt converged at Reggae on the River and came up with the roots for this Emerald Triangle celebration. They put together another summertime music fest that boasts international and local acts. This year's headliners keeping the vibe positive all day and night are Emancipator, Justin Martin, Mr. Carmack, Sage the Gemini and Thomas Jack.
