Organizers behind Sol Blume, one of the largest annual R&B music festivals in the country, have announced that this year’s event will be rescheduled to Saturday, Aug. 19, and Sunday, Aug. 20.

Following ongoing severe weather storms and record-breaking rainfall this spring, organizers were informed in recent days by City of Sacramento park officials that Sol Blume would not be able to host the event as scheduled in the interest of public safety. The Sacramento-based concert promoter ENT Legends quickly pivoted and successfully rebooked nearly all of the original performances to the new dates while adding in several new acts, ultimately creating what will become a massive summertime celebration outdoors featuring the most sought-after R&B, soul, and hip-hop acts from around the globe.

Two-day GA ($225+) and VIP tickets ($400+) are available for purchase now at

All 2023 festival tickets purchased for the April event are still valid and will be automatically transferred to the new dates in August. For ticket-buyers that cannot make the new date this summer, organizers have created an online FAQ page specifically around the rescheduling including artists updates, ticketing options for those who cannot attend, assistance with hotels, and more - all of which can be found on the festival website For any questions related to these new August dates, fans are encouraged to contact the festival directly at


Statement from Sol Blume


After originally hosting some of their first-ever West Coast performances in small clubs at the start of their careers years ago, festival organizers will soon welcome back to Sacramento a pair of critically acclaimed, Grammy Award-nominated artists as they headline the 2023 festival - Kehlani and Brent Faiyaz. Bay Area’s own multi-platinum songstress Kehlani will return to NorCal having recently sold-out the Oracle Arena in nearby Oakland last fall in support of her last album blue water road released last year; while R&B sensation and modern-day style icon Brent Faiyaz will make a very rare festival performance as he returns to Sacramento for the first time since 2018 following the release of his latest album Wasteland last summer.

Joining Kehlani to help kick off Day 1 will include a number of award-winning singer/songwriters like UK superstar Ella Mai as part of the upcoming ‘Heart On My Sleeve’ Tour following her latest album release; East London native and alt-R&B singer Nao; festival alumni Sabrina Claudio as she returns to Sol Blume after performing at the inaugural fest in 2018; and Mariah the Scientist, who recently wrapped up a national-wide winter tour opening for Rod Wave; in addition to Amber Mark, LaRussell, Rini, Mereba, and more.

Plus, a pair of critically-acclaimed emcees will help grace the Sol Blume stages on Saturday including Isaiah Rashad, who returns to the limelight last year with the release of his highly-anticipated sophomore album following a five-year absence; and Brooklyn-born rapper Joey Bada$$, who will perform in support of his latest album 2000 released this past fall.

The following day on Sunday, fans will not only be treated to a festival-closing and headlining set from Brent Faiyaz, but also performances from acclaimed R&B music acts like Harlem-born vocalist and dancer Teyana Taylor, who will make a special festival appearance following her farewell tour last summer; Canadian singer Jessie Reyez, who will later join Sam Smith on his summer tour across North America; soulful songwriter Pink Sweat$; the multi-Grammy Award-nominated Chlöe, best known as one half of the musical sister-duo Chloe x Halle; viral R&B sensation PinkPantheress; Bay Area-native Thuy; and Cash Money-signee Jacquees, among many others.
