How can me and my band play at the festival?
The Festival has one Main Stage located at the Cultural Plaza and one small Satellite Stage Tent located on Lucerne Avenue at J Street. These are the only locations where musicians contracted by Merritt Music on behalf of the Festial to perform during the event.
Since the artists are working on the street all day, the festival strongly discourages and disallows for entertainers, vendors, musicians etc. in front of storefronts or on the street due to the large crowds and their obstruction of pedestrian right of ways as well as music and activities that can be distracting and disruptive for the working street painters.
