He added, “The music is just the beginning. We are working with our visual artists for fresh art installations and our greening team to bring even more environmental initiatives.”
Attendees will also be able to enjoy pop up performances, DJ sets and art installations in between sets. The festival will also offer a variety of Monterey’s best foods.
