Springboard West Music Festival
4944 Newport Avenue, San Diego, 92107
Springboard West Music Festival, dubbed the “music discovery festival”, is back in San Diego for its third year in a row. For three days, emerging artists from all over the world, industry professionals and locals will gather in Ocean Beach to celebrate the future of music.
The conference and festival mashup begins on Jan. 10 with a two-day “Band Bootcamp” where 40 bands and 10 solo artists cherry picked from the over 3,000 submissions will attend workshops, panels and pitch sessions with veterans and professionals in the music industry. This year’s confirmed mentors include Guns N’ Roses’ first manager, Vicky Hamilton, award winning producer, Dale Penner, and casting directors from “American Idol”, “The Voice” and “The Four”.
Springboard West culminates Jan. 12 with the wildly popular Band & Brew Crawl, which will feature all 50 artists performing at Winston’s, OB Theatre, The Harp, Mother’s Saloon and, new this year, OB Brewery. The Band & Brew Crawl is open to the public.
