The First City Festival returns for its second year to the Monterey County Fair and Event Center on Saturday August 23rd and Sunday, August 24th! Last year at its debut, the boutique music festival attracted more than 10,000 attendees each day and featured a line-up of over 30 bands at the picturesque coastal setting.

The line-up for this year's fest includes Beck, The National, Phantogram, Best Coast, and so many more amazing acts! In addition to performers on three stages, the festival offers other entertainment and distinctive attractions including a Vaudeville-style variety stage, plus a full carnival with rides and games.

Tickets are on sale now and includes unlimited access to carnival rides. There will also be hotel and shuttle packages available for purchase.
