Santa Cruz Music Festival returns this weekend to deliver two full days of curated, music-focused programming across over a dozen venues. In addition to the numerous local artists performing at music venues, public spaces, and local businesses, there will also be lots of special events and takeovers happening throughout the weekend.

Musical highlights on the lineup include beat master and producer Mr. Carmack, who was born and raised in San Francisco, along with Dirtybird sensations Sacha Robotti and Justin Jay (playing with his live band). Other noteworthy acts this year include Mija, who starts her SF residency at Audio SF on March 30, as well as San Francisco resident and West Coast bass artist O’Snap plus the dynamic Santa Cruz duo of The Pirate & the fierce Smasheltooth, who bring a saucy combination of hyphy rap slaps and uptempo dancehall.

The event also incorporates special events, including a Bike Party, Cannabis Culture speakers, and Justin Jay is playing a free set in San Lorenzo Park. There will also be a handful of music takeover events, such as ShadowTrix Music, the Program, and Wormhole (Oakland) happening throughout the area.
