A message from your friends at Music Tastes Good:

When throwing a festival that’s a love letter to your city, an homage to your best friend, an eclectic food celebration, and an event primed to bring joy to a crowd of like-minded strangers, well, the stakes are high.

Trust the obvious: unforgettable live performances. The best chefs you can dream of. The city you know and love.

Dive deeper: The lyric you can’t stop singing. The magic you discover in a bite. The tears of joy that run down your face when you hear that same song for the seventh time in a row. The meal you can’t stop describing to your friends. The smile you can’t wipe off your face, even if no one is paying attention. Put all of this together in a shoreline setting, add a sea of people who are feeling that same incredible feeling, and don’t worry about wiping that smile (or frosting) off your face.

This is Music Tastes Good, the festival that celebrates that cerebral and visceral connection of taste and creativity.

You can join us. All passes (music, food and VIP) are available on our website starting today (Friday, May 12) 10am PDT and locally at Fingerprints Records in Long Beach, CA.

See you in September!
