Hey there BISS Listers!  Ready to funk it up with us next week in Belden, CA? I know you must know about For The Funk Of It by now as I haven't stopped talking about it. It's been the only festival on my mind since High Sierra! (Well also Hangtown but that's later...)

Have you ever been to Belden? Belden is a magical town nestled in the Sierra Mountains and tucked away in the Feather River Canyon. Belden Town Resort and Lodge is located on Highway 70, 28 miles west of Quincy, California. The resort offers both indoor and outdoor dining on the outside deck and a fully-stocked bar. Add in 3 days and 3 nights filled with good people, good times and good funk! Three stages will be filling Belden Town with the funkiest rhythms that are happening around the globe today and you've got For the Funk of It Music Festival!

And because FTFOI loves BISS and our followers, they are giving us our own code of; BISS to save $20 off of the any FTFOI ticket! This will only be good until 8/6 when ticket sales go offline. They will of course be available at the gate! We still have a contest running to give away a parking pass for the BISS Lister who spreads the word the most by 8/8.  So get on it and share!! Then email us at biss@bisslist.com to let us know all about it...
