A heartfelt thanks to festival-goers for supporting us over the years! Last year, you came out in droves for our inaugural BBQ competition, nearly doubling Saturday attendance. Art + Soul is thrilled to have been named the Best Music Festival by the East Bay Express.
Mark your calendars for August 1 & 2 and join the fun as we celebrate 15 jubilant years of showcasing Oakland/East Bay culture!
