Festival season at Lake Tahoe is heating up, with both Bass Camp Festival IV and the 4th annual Lake Tahoe Reggae Festival at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Lake Tahoe recently announcing lineups. Bass Camp features headliners Krewella and Nero performing Aug. 6-7. And a late-breaking announcement finds Pepper, Ky-Mani Marley, Israel Vibration and Roots Radics, Don Carlos Mike Love and Squarefield Massive performing at the Lake Tahoe Reggae Festival on Aug. 20. There’s a little something there for most everyone, so get planning. While you’re at it, here are a couple picks for this weekend:

1. Eat UP The view

Pretty much everything goes better with a view of Lake Tahoe, and that includes every meal of the day. A few of the options available around the lake for lakeside dining are available here.

2. The Last Revel

Hailing from Minnesota, this string band is bringing their take on Americana and folk music to the Divided Sky in Meyers this Saturday. The bar and restaurant tends to attract a crowd that’s both music savvy and fun loving. It should be a good one.

3. Take A Hike

Skunk Harbor is quick hike on the East Shore that rewards travelers with a stellar view at the end, and it’s just one of the hundreds available around the lake. The weather is looking sunny and breezy this weekend, so it should be a solid time to get out.
