The 16th Annual Carlsbad Music Festival

The 16th annual Carlsbad Music Festival is a 3-day summer celebration of adventurous music by the beach  in the charming seaside Village of Carlsbad.

The Festival, called “one of the area’s most innovative music showcases” by KPBS, features dozens of performances of creative music of all kinds curated by CMF Founder and Artistic Director, composer/violinist Matt McBane. The weekend includes free (with suggested donation) indoor and outdoor concerts at various venues, beer garden, food trucks, artisan market, and pop-up art gallery.
