What what what?
As I sit down to eat my dinner of Progresso light soup and read the Monterey County Herald I spot something next to one of the gang violence articles – Monterey to host a Coachella-like music festival. Ex-squeeze me? Baking powder? Monterey doesn’t do stuff like that. Now, Monterey has recently hosted bands like Mumford and Sons and Band of Horses, but a whole festival? Mind equals blown. I need to go.
First City Festival will happen the weekend of August 24th and 25th. The lineup features Modest Mouse, Passion Pit, MGMT, Neko Case, Toro Y Moi, Delta Spirit, Dr. Dog, and Washed Out, to name a few. Two day admission costs about $150, VIP two day admission costs about $280. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 31.
