From June 21-23, the annual Davis Music Fest returns for its ninth year, showcasing the best of local, regional and touring artists during the three-day music event. Audiences will hear a wide range of genres from rock to hip-hop and everything in between. Musicians like the funkadelic and personal Philharmonik will be there, along with the polka gypsy stylings of the Midnight Dip. From Ariel Wang to the West Nile Ramblers, there will be music for each member of the family to enjoy. The day one venue will be at the German influenced Sudwerk Brewing Co. Day two will happen at a number of places around Davis like the Pence Gallery and the Odd Fellows Lodge, and day three will go down at Delta of Venus. Come find new music favorites while feeling excellent that the proceeds will benefit local public schools’ art, music and performing arts programs. For those interested in becoming a part of the excitement, there are options to participate in the street team. Street teamers will put up posters, pass out flyers for the event and will be pumping people up for the celebration. Depending on the numerous levels of commitment, the street team members can also earn different levels of access to Davis Music Festival activities. Tickets are $40, and if you want to snap a photo for your Instas, make sure to tag with #DMF9! For more information on the festival, visit
