Collective Soul, Trombone Shorty and Mat Kearney headline the 41st annual Sacramento Music Fest, which kicks off this Memorial Day Weekend in Sacramento (May 23-26, 2014).
One hundred bands will perform this weekend in Old Sacramento and Downtown Sacramento at a variety of venues in the largest live music festival in the city. Tickets for the four-day festival are currently on sale, and a $99 pass gets you in to all of the shows. Daily tickets start at $39.
The Sacramento Music Festival started as the Sacramento Jazz Festival more than four decades ago, and in the past few years, it has expanded to include a more diverse set of artists and variety of music. This year, see musicians performing blues, rock, zydeco, jazz, swing, rockabilly, big bands and more.
With so much to see at the event, many festivalgoers stay at Downtown and Old Sacramento hotels, and the Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau has discounted hotel rates for the festival.
Parking is readily available at several city lots near Old Sacramento, and street parking is also available.
