Santa Cruz Music Festival, touching down in the laidback costal city of Santa Cruz, Calif. on Feb. 18th & 19th, has just released its third and final announcement of performers. The festival is a unique event that is a multi-venue musical playground, with 11+ event spaces spread throughout downtown Santa Cruz (walking distance, of course). Santa Cruz Music Festival’s fourth event has been passionately and carefully curated with internationally known acts, as well as hard-hitting local Santa Cruz and Bay Area artists. The two-day music marathon boasts more than 200+ bands, acts, and performers distributed over 17 stages inside the best and brightest downtown venues – bringing nothing but the highest quality of music & entertainment.
Along with the hard-hitting acts of the first two waves, such as Troyboi, Louis the Child, The Brothers Comatose, The Coffis Brothers (and more), the festival has added Zion-I, Monolink, Scarub, Charlesthefirst, Ancestree, Dreaming Ghosts and many more. Many of the communtity activities are free, but for access to all music events, don’t sleep on buying your wristband here.
This year, SCMF will include San Lorenzo Park to their list of venues. San Lorenzo Park will be the staple of community for SCMF, by helping to express how much they would like to give back to the community as an event.
“By incorporating the city’s culture and local establishments into the event itself, Santa Cruz Music Festival is an amalgamation of festival community and city community. It brings business to local proprietors and good vibes to attendees by creating an event that is vast, yet intimate. Since many of these venues have an atmosphere with years of history, there is a sense of home and permanence that is evoked as opposed to gathering in front of a stage that will be disassembled soon after. Instead of bringing the community to the festival, Santa Cruz Music Festival is bringing the festival to the community.” – The Huffington Post
In the true spirit of the community, booths will be set up for Nonprofits and NGOs to spread awareness for their local companies. Santa Cruz Music Festival isn’t just for adults either: fun-for-all-ages events will be included at the park, such as yoga, hula-hooping, face-painting, and other community fair activities. Speakers from Santa Cruz Speaks will also be on site, covering a range of topics from The Community of Santa Cruz, Sustainability and Cannabis Science, The Music Industry, and more!
