Downtown Long Beach Associates (DLBA) announced its Summer and Music (SAM) 2015 free concert series lineup at a concert and media event yesterday evening—and it’s looking exciting.
We’ve called it the golden grail of Long Beach music and with good reason reason: Buskerfest brings out local talent in a way that no other event in the city does, by providing a space (on the back of a flatbed) to perform in front of an audience who gets to attend for free and vote for their favorites.
Summer and Music, Long Beach’s veteran music festival, has not just cemented its place as the go-to music series in Long Beach as each year amps up the quality of its lineup, it is proving to be the series of events that is putting Long Beach on the map as a multi-leveled venue.
Fear not: Funk Fest is not going anywhere. And neither is the Summer and Music concert series, which will continue to foster a music scene in Long Beach like no other celebration.
