The Live Oak Music Festival is an annual three day concert and camping event held in the hills above Santa Barbara. The 2016 festival will be held on June 17-19. 100% of Live Oak proceeds support KCBX Public Radio.
The Live Oak Music Festival is held at Live Oak Camp, about twenty minutes west of Santa Barbara. Nestled in the river valley that feeds Cachuma Lake, the site is filled with old oaks that provide restful shade and pristine beauty.
The focus of the Live Oak Music Festival is, of course, the main stage performances. With musicians from all over the United States and across the globe performing, this hub of the festival is the gathering place for everyone to hear and see some of the finest entertainers anywhere do what they do best: play music. Ranging from traditional, folk, bluegrass and gospel, to blues, jazz, classical and world music, and touching most genres in between, the main stage provides cultural entertainment and education. Music lineup is at www.liveoakfest.org/lineup. There are also arts and crafts, activities for small children and camping activities.
The 2016 lineup includes Wynonna and the Big Noise, Jay Farrar (trio), James McMurtry, The California Honeydrops, Sarah Jarosz, African Guitar Summit and many others.
