Every year, local musicians come out and rock the streets of downtown San Jose for one long night of music. This year, expect an even bigger party than usual as it’s the 11th anniversary of this event and it follows the worldwide celebration of the summer solstice on June 21.

The festival will take place on June 23 with the main stage set up at the plaza in front of city hall in San Jose’s historic district. Performances will take place on various street corners throughout downtown, beginning at 6 p.m. and going until 2 a.m. So far there are 26 different performers signed up, and an expected turnout of 25,000, making it the biggest musical event in our state. Anyone can register to perform in the music festival if they meet the technical requirements such as professional audio equipment, an audio engineer on hand, professional lighting equipment, and access to power (via a generator or from an outlet somewhere near the stage).
