Time To Hop On The Coaster To Carlsbad Music Festival!

Ladies and gents, it’s time to take the Coaster to the 14th Carlsbad Music Festival!

I mean, you don’t have to… if you hate craft beer, dancing in the perfect Carlsbad weather, and listening to nationally renown music by the likes of Julia Holter, Birdy Bardot, and Aperture Duo, that is! 😉

The Carlsbad Music Festival will be taking over four major locations with “adventurous music by the beach,” a Green Flash beer garden, food trucks and more.

If you happen to enjoy those things, then the weekend of Friday, August 25th through Sunday, August 27th was tailor-made, just for you!

Hop on the Coaster and you’ll be dropped off right in Carlsbad Village in the middle of all the action…and you can enjoy those Green Flash beers without worrying about how you’re getting home!

You’ll also be able to catch some well-known locals like Taken By Canadians and Lightning Cola on the “free” stages.

If you’ve missed this festival every one of the last 13 years, now is the year to check it out. Even the San Diego Union Tribune says “…you’ll think that Carlsbad is the coolest place on earth”!
