The Xclamation Festival is unlike any other festival of its kind in the United States. The X Fest features up to 40 bands and performers on 6 separate stages and the world’s largest outdoor disco that spans four city blocks. In its 8th year, X Fest is the largest music festival in the central valley.

The Xclamation Festival draws 15,000 people to downtown Modesta, CA and features some of the best and most popular touring acts in the country. This year’s Xlamation Festival will feature prformances by Blue October, Stevie B, Powerman 5000, Young MC, Tempest, Y&T, Digital Underground, Pat Travers, Moonshine Bandits and DJ Dan and will be held on July 21.

In terms of compensation, artists are paid based on the band’s market value in Modesto. If a band has a proven draw here, solid record sales here, radio airplay or a cool schtick, they might get some compensation out the event. If they have no draw value then it is unlikely that they will be paid. However, X Fest does not take a merchandise percentage so bands keep 100% of their merchandise sales.

Previous X Fest performers include Marshall Tucker Band, Tone Loc, Dishwalla, Grandaddy, Sir Mix a Lot, David Bazan (from Pedro the Lion), Jupiter Rising and Vanilla Ice.
