Description

Oakland is experiencing a resurgence of its culture capital. Launching the first annual Oakland Music Festival will highlight the musical talent locally and nationally.

WHAT
The Oakland Music Festival (OMF) is ready to move forward and invites
you to support what will be an amazing event highlighting local and regional music
acts. OMF will look to further capture the city’s essence by featuring local artists and eateries.

WHEN
Saturday, September 21, 2013 marks the launch of this exciting and new music
festival. OMF is looking to provide an outlet for local performers eager to make their mark, or further stamp their growing influence, while integrating a select number of established acts, with a focus on those with local Bay Area roots.
OMF is a one day, outdoor music festival featuring three stages. One of the two
stages will be located indoors, at a 700 person capacity venue located in the heart of
the festival.

WHERE
OMF’s central, urban setting, located in the Jack London Square District, offers a
unique backdrop, while also taking into consideration the public transit
opportunities available within the immediate area (BART, Bus Lines and Ferries located within a few blocks of the event location).

OMF will support pre-event and post-event shows at local venues, expanding the
opportunity for promotion and branding.

While the core mission of OMF is music-centric, the festival will feature food, beverage and art vendors, showcasing local artists and featuring local eateries, fashion designers and businesses.

WHY
Oakland is experiencing a resurgence of its culture capital. Launching the first annual Oakland Music Festival will highlight the musical talent locally and nationally.

May 2, 2013, the real estate website Movoto ranked Oakland as the most exciting city in America on its roster of the “The 10 Most Exciting Cities in America.
