Over President’s weekend, 10 KZSC staff members took to the streets of downtown Santa Cruz to interview and document the musical festival for our listeners. Throughout the day, we aired interviews and updates for those of you who could not make it down to the event. We at KZSC are very thankful to have had the opportunity to partner with SCMF and play a role in supporting our local artists.

The festival included over 250 artists, a majority of which were local to Santa Cruz! The whole event was very well done and brought so many people to downtown and to local businesses. The best part of the festival was that over half of the venues participating in the event were free and open to the public. We got a chance to chat with Half Stack, the Devil Sliders, Partywave, SO$AY, CVRSE, The Coffis Brothers, Alwa Gordon, The M Machine, Louis the Child and Zion I over the weekend. Then the KZSC crew got to enjoy the music around us at all the venues and many restaurants downtown! My personal favorite act was seeing the M Machine DJ Motiv on Sunday night.

We hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and we are looking forward to next year!
