About the event
Schellraiser is a family-owned micro-festival that is passionate about bringing live music and culture to our overlooked and underappreciated corner of the West. We're located in the high desert mountains of McGill, Nevada; in an area known as the Gateway to Great Basin National Park, one of Nevada's prized gems. Our lineup reflects our love of alternative and independent music, from country to cumbia, punk to pop and soul to psychedelia. The event itself reflects our love of the Eastern Nevada area; which only has a population of 4,800 and has been on the decline for many years. It's our mission to breathe life back into our little town by bringing in much needed culture and tourism.
We’re not just another corporate event promoter, nor are we a mass-scale event like Burning Man. Schellraiser is a family-owned, Nevada loving, co-created event. We believe in giving back to our small community, which is why our inaugural event raised $30,000 for the nonprofit Nevada Northern Railway Foundation. We continue to support local nonprofits and community service organizations each year. As the owners of the historic McGill Theater, we’re actively engaged in the process of restoring a long-abandoned cultural landmark in the heart of our downtown.

Schellraiser Fest aims to experience growth in every aspect of its operations, including ticket sales, attendance and sponsorship's. While focusing on slow, organic growth in the beginning, we are preparing to expand the number of attendees each year.
