Share the music! share the love!

Your gift, of any amount, helps to bring adventurous music to Carlsbad. Ticket sales account for only a tiny percentage of our funding, and we rely on music-lovers like you to bring our community performances of the highest caliber. Your contribution helps cover the costs of production for the live concerts as well as supports local and touring musicians who perform at all our events.

The Carlsbad Music Festival is YOUR festival; help us keep it thriving! Every dollar donated will support more concerts of adventurous music by the beach. Plus, donating has its perks! See the many added benefits of donating below.

The Carlsbad Music Festival is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, and all donations are tax-deductible (FEIN 26-3969347).
