Monterey, CA is a sleepy beach town known for a bit of golf, an amazing aquarium, one of the best entertainment Mayors ever, and some beautiful coastal landscapes. This weekend it’ll get a tad louder with The First City Festival this weekend August 23-24.

Headlining acts such as Beck, The National, Phantogram, The Naken & The Famous, Dawes, Best Coast, and many many others including local and SF bay Area acts such as Sleepy Sun (featured on our show) , Doe Eyes, & The Family Crest.


We’re going down to take some rockstar pictures and will tweet & share out some groovy, social, & square pictures at @transmissionsSF. So, follow us on the twitter for this fun weekend of music.

First City Festival

Experience a weekend of music, food and fresh ocean air! First City Festival, named after Monterey’s claim as the official “first capital” of California, promises a sophisticated musical line-up of 30+ bands in a relaxed and beautiful coastal setting.

The festival grounds will showcase three live music performance stages plus a Vaudeville variety stage. A full carnival, complete with rides and games, will be available to guests. Curated dining options will include local craft beers as well as wine and food vendors. Visit the Unique USA Marketplace to find Made in the USA goods by independent designers. We also welcome Beat Swap Meet, a curated vinyl record marketplace where you can search through and purchase your favorite music.
