Our friends across the causeway are gearing up for an epic weekend of live music come mid-June. The 6th annual Davis Music Festival will return from June 17 – 19, 2016, and the organizers (Music Only Makes Sense and Davis Live Music Collective) just announced the lineup this afternoon. Much like previous years, there are no real headliners, because technically “all bands headline the DMF.” Think of it as a mini SXSW-style set up, where multiple venues all over town participate and host shows throughout the weekend.
Performers this year will include: Sunmonks, Joseph In the Well, Miss Lonely Hearts, Rin Tin Tiger, Rita Hosking Band, Pregnant, Misner & Smith, Kaz Mirblouk, Element Brass Band, Foxtails Brigade, Hannah Jane Kile, Xochitl, West Nile Ramblers, Steve Kotarek and dozens of others. Check out the poster below for a full rundown and be sure to follow DMF on Facebook for lineup breakdowns, venue info and more news updates as the event gets closer.
Tickets are available now at Armadillo Music or online through Eventbrite.com. Profits from this year’s festival will benefit the Davis School Arts Foundation and the DHS Blue & White Foundation.
