The 12th Annual Carlsbad Music Festival took over local Carlsbad parks, art galleries, music stores, and other various public indoor and outdoor venues, with a wide array of unique musical performances. With 20-minute sets starting every half hour and multiple performance options to choose from at any time, attendees were able to create their own concert journey as they strolled through the Village. New features of this year’s festival included the addition of new stages at St. Michael’s Church and Carlsbad By The Sea as well as a New Orleans march down Carlsbad Village Dr. Participating performers, bands, and ensembles included the Euphoria Brass Band, the G Burns Jug Band, Hocket, the San Diego Opera, and Trouble in the Wind, among many others.
