Sixty-five bands. Thirteen venues. Nineteen hours of rock and roll, jazz, rhythm and blues, rockabilly, heavy metal, ska, world music, even children’s tunes.

You’ll find it all at this weekend at the third annual Davis Music Festival. Hours are 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

Attendees purchase a wristband, which allows them access to each venue, including Bike Forth, Central Park, City Tavern at Bistro 33, Davis Art Center, Delta of Venus, Little Prague, Davis Odd Fellows Hall (upstairs and downstairs), Pence Gallery, G Street Wunderbar, Sophia’s Thai Bar, Vini Wine Bar and the Armadillo Music Stage.

Tickets, $25 in advance or $30 on the day of the festival, are available at Armadillo Music, 205 F St. in downtown Davis, or at www.davismusicfest.com.

A previously announced “upgrade” show by JD McPherson at the Mondavi Center at UC Davis has been canceled. The Mondavi Center is offering full refunds, plus free tickets to Lyle Lovett’s concert at 7 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 11. For more information, call the Mondavi ticket office at 530-754-2787.

Most venues are all-ages, but bars become restricted to patrons 21 and older at 9 p.m. Saturday.

The number of bands in the 2013 festival is extensive, including local and Bay Area acts, ranging in style from rock to folk, electronic to metal.

There’s also music for the kids from local bands The Hoots and Music Matt, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the Davis Art Center, 1919 F St.

For a full list of bands, schedule and more, go the Davis Music Festival website or download the new festival app.

“We did a better job this year of having bands fit better in their respective spaces,” founder Danny Tomasello said. “We’re creating more vibes in each space as opposed to it being more scattered like in years past. You don’t have to run around.

“You still can, and I encourage that, but you can also just post up if you don’t feel like it. We did a good job of catering to the fan that wants to chill in one or two places.”

Proceeds from the festival, which is run by volunteers, will benefit the Davis School Arts Foundation. It is sponsored by Armadillo Music and the Davis Live Music Collective.
