Santa Cruz’s first multiple-venue music festival is presenting Santa Cruz Music Festival “Pre-Party” expanding to two days at The Catalyst Club: Friday, October 10 and Saturday, October 11.
The Festival’s inaugural year was a clear success. SCMF activated Downtown Santa Cruz with more than 92 hours of entertainment at both paid and free venues, engaging seven venues on Pacific Avenue and presenting more than 100 performing acts. More than 2000 patrons attended shows, and local businesses reported record receipts.
The Festival’s first year confirmed that Santa Cruz is an ideal location for this type of festival. The city has an established art and music culture. Its vibrant downtown area supports several music venues, which are set amidst a mix of independent and eclectic restaurants, bars and retail shops. The area’s enduring place in the California beach culture completes the backdrop.
This year's SCMF Pre-Party features ill-esha, Vokab Kompany, Far East Movement, The Gaslamp Killer, Two Fresh, Dimond Saints, and more! Get Tickets: http://santacruzmusicfestival.com
