Oakland Music Festival Gets Sequel

Second annual event takes place on September 27

Josh Farria

Oakland Music Festival is back for the second year, taking over the Franklin Street Bend in Uptown from noon to 8 PM on September 27, 2014.

The event features a wide variety of live performers and DJs from the Bay Area and beyond, including the legendary Latin Soul Brothers, LA up-and-comers like rapper Dom Kennedy and singer SZA, and electropop outfit The Lovemakers. Tickets are $35 for general admission and $70 for VIP; general admission tickets for a group of four or more cost $28.

A successful event will make a lasting impact even beyond the festival perimeters. A portion of the ticket sales will be donated to Beats Rhymes and Life, Inc., a nonprofit with a program that uses hip-hop culture as a form of therapy for at-risk East Bay students.
