Free Park Concerts: Sunday 1-7:30pm

Dozens of adventurous bands, ensembles and soloists will take part in the 12th Annual Carlsbad Music Festival. With multiple performance options to choose from at any time, attendees of the Village Walk are invited to create their own concert journey through the Village – including performances by cutting edge, emerging contemporary classical artists at our “New Currents” stage, held at St. Michael’s Church.

The ticketed Mainstage Artists are New York-based violinist and electronics wizard Todd Reynolds, Los Angeles-based acclaimed contemporary pianist Vicki Ray, and Encinitas-based master Indian sitarist Pandit Kartik Seshadri.

Highlights of the 60+ free performances include San Diego Opera’s Opera Exposed! in a first-ever collaboration between our organizations, a New Orleans-style second line march through the Village by Euphoria Brass Band, up and coming psychedelic indie pop by Inspired and the Sleep, 1920’s and 30’s Americana music from urban blues to mountain fiddle by the G Burns Jug Band, traditional Persian classical music by Koroush Taghavi, and contemporary works for piano duo by HOCKET.
