ABOUT

The Event

Eighteen bands. Four days.
One great cause.

Schellraiser 2021 brings musical acts from as far away as Philadelphia, Dallas, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, New Orleans and beyond to Eastern Nevada’s spectacular Steptoe Valley to raise decibel levels — and money for the nonprofit Nevada Northern Railway’s McGill Depot and McGill railroad track restoration projects.

The Lineup

For our first-ever festival, we teamed up with booking agents all over North America.

We’ve built an event that introduces audiences to some of our favorite newer acts, while showcasing the sounds of longtime heroes like the Old 97’s.

 

We generally bristle at the use of the word “alternative,” but to speak in shorthand, we think the lineup offers a much-needed alternative to the increasingly shallow and overproduced sounds of today’s mainstream artists.

The Community

Schellraiser 2021 marks our first foray into the world of special events.

The name “Schellraiser” is a nod of the hat to the nearby Schell Creek mountain range that inspires us every day with its beauty. It also reflects our commitment to raising funds for — and awareness of — one of our favorite nonprofits, the Nevada Northern Railway.

 

All proceeds from ticket sales (after event expenses) will be donated to the railway to support its McGill Depot and McGill railroad track restoration projects.

 

We also want to highlight everything that McGill and the surrounding area have to offer visitors, and aim to promote more cultural events in the community that enhance the quality of life for local residents.
