The Live Oak Music Festival is more than just a music festival — it is an experience rooted in music and community.

Live Oak presents music that represents the diversity of genres played by their beneficiary, KCBX Public Radio: primarily roots music with an emphasis on acoustic performance. Folk, bluegrass, blues, world music, jazz, classical, reggae, soul, R&B, Celtic, Cajun, alt country, alt folk, and more will be considered.

Live Oak pays all selected artists a competitive fee, serves very good meals and hospitality backstage, and provides ground transportation between the airport, hotel and venue. Lodging may be negotiated as part of the performance fee. The festival, which will take place June 13-15, 2014, attracts 3000 people per day.

Previous performers include: Indigo Girls, Josh Ritter, Toots and the Maytals, Brett Dennen, Mavis Staples, Trombone Shorty, Arlo Guthrie, Rickie Lee Jones, Los Lobos, Baaba Maal, Nanci Griffith, Richard Thompson, Robert Earl Keen, Odetta, Nashville Bluegrass Band, Blind Boys of Alabama, Altan, Janis Ian, Charles Brown, Anonymous 4, Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Edgar Meyer, Mark O'Connor, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, Tuck & Patti, Bettye Lavette, Claire Lynch, Dr. Lonnie Smith, the Texas Tornados and many others.

Held each Father's Day weekend, this concert and camping event in the hills above Santa Barbara, California is a journey into a timeless place that is far removed from ties and clocks, suits and schedules.

100% of Live Oak proceeds go to support KCBX Public Radio.
