Santa Cruz Isn’t just a Sleepy Beach Town!

Santa Cruz…

It’s a town known as a fantastic hippie/surf /college blend of people just south of San Francisco. Within the last year, Santa Cruz has set itself apart by taking a new approach to music festivals.  Santa Cruz Music Festival links 12+ downtown Santa Cruz venues for a two-day musical marathon. Bringing in over 250+ bands, acts and performers along with 15 stages, this is a March event you cannot miss.
The first wave of artists on the roster include Mr. Carmack, Ghostface Killah, K?D, Mija, and many more. We can’t wait to get down and boogie at this eclectic music festival.

Is capacity going to be an issue?

Each venue will have its own capacity restraint. The policy is first come, first served. We HIGHLY recommend getting to a venue early if you want to see a certain artist. There will be lines at each venue, as people leave the venue, new people will be let in from the line. We apologize in advance for any wait or if you are unable to see an act you want to see.

Recap of Santa Cruz Music Festival 2017:

Last year, we sent two of our contributing writers to cover Santa Cruz’s musical takeover.  If you’re interested in their full review- click here!  They writers entitled the article “THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND WHAT WE MADE OF SCMF ’17”.  The article highlights the uniqueness, the areas of growth, and the culture they experienced.

All in all, they reported that the experience was one of a kind, but strongly encourage all attending to opt for VIP.  Our writers also noted that weather was an issue.  That being said, the festival has been pushed back a few weeks and ‘good weather vibes’ are being put into the universe by all attending.
