The Mill Valley Chamber is announcing today the full music lineup for its annual springtime Mill Valley Music Festival, which expands to two days this year on May 13-14.
2-Day GA (starting at $219+) a 2-Day GA PLUS ticket (starting at $339+) and 2-Day VIP tickets (starting at $449) will go on sale to the general public later today, January 24 at noon PT via MillValleyMusicFest.com, although fans are encouraged to act fast as the initial batch of blind presale tickets sold out in advance similar to last year’s inaugural festival.
Attendees of all ages at this year’s two-day weekend celebration that remains chock full of music, art, and local culture will be treated to headlining performances from a pair of NorCal rock legends – Oakland-born singer/songwriter Michael Franti will be joined by his long-standing band Spearhead, while alt-rock pioneers Cake formed in nearby Sacramento.
New Orleans’ very own Grammy Award-nominated and former NPR Tiny Desk Contest winner Tank and the Bangas will also grace the Mill Valley main stage, as will Jerry Harrison and Adrian Belew’s REMAIN IN LIGHT, a special concert series featuring former members of Talking Heads; Seattle seven-piece The Dip; retro-soul revivalist Durand Jones; southern soul singer Black Joe Lewis and his multi-talented backing band The Honeybears; and Grammy-nominated Valerie June, a folk-soul singer known for her unique blend of Appalachian music.
Rounding out the 2023 lineup includes Oakland’s own African psych-rock band Orchestra Gold and multi-piece Mill Valley student residents The Alive – both of whom further the festival’s commitment to supporting local arts and culture. The full music lineup is listed below and available online at MillValleyMusicFest.com
