The Davis Music Festival rocks on

From page OID11 | September 22, 2013 |

The annual Davis Music Festival, which celebrated its third year in June, has grown by leaps and bounds since its inception in 2011. This year, 65 bands performed at 13 venues throughout downtown Davis over two days.

Although a date for the 2014 festival hasn’t been set yet, music fans should plan to attend this event. Attendees purchase a wristband, which allows them access to each venue — which this year included places such as Central Park, Davis Art Center, Davis Odd Fellows Hall, Pence Gallery, and the Armadillo Music Stage. Most venues are all-ages, but bars become restricted to patrons 21 and older at night.

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

“It’s a little bit magical,” said Sara Eley an integral member of DMF since day one. “Helping the kids, helping the downtown businesses; there’s that element that is really enduring and special. Our town of Davis is really invested in the arts. I feel lucky. There is a lot of room to grow and I feel Davis is ready for it.

“Five years from now, Davis is going to be a tour stop for bands along the way,” Eley continued. “It will be built into tour schedules.”

The Davis Music Festival is all volunteer-run, and a major bonus factor of the festival is that proceeds benefit the Davis School Arts Foundation.

From this year’s organizers:
“The numbers are in and we can conservatively report that 2,000 people came out for 2013 DMF (includes musicians and volunteers). So far, our streak of 100% participant satisfaction is still intact. Please spread the word on that front.

We’ll have next year’s date to you soon. In the meantime, consider saving Saturday, Oct. 12 for Festival on the Green — a collaboration between Music Only Makes Sense and the Davis High School Blue & White Foundation. Enjoy two alternating stages with 7-8 bands in Central Park. For more information, visit www.davismusicfest.com
