General On-Sale tickets will be available on Friday, June 14th at LightsOnFest.com.

“Concord Pavilion is the ultimate venue. It is the perfect place to bring people from all over the Bay. I have many memories watching shows and DREAMING I’d be able to perform there. The Bay Area is my home…..it’s a dream come true to host my festival there”, said H.E.R.
The upcoming festival will feature two stages that will host nationally recognized music acts as well as a third stage dedicated to providing a platform for emerging filmmakers. It will also feature activations from local visual artists, vendors and food trucks. The Bay Area native’s vision is to build an event that will provide a platform for and showcase various disciplines of the arts, not just music.
“It’s an honor to be able to help this amazing artist execute her vision. It’s especially refreshing for us because most of the recent artist-curated festivals like Dreamville, Roots Picnic, Astroworld, Camp Flognaw and others are curated by men; we haven’t seen many female owned and curated artist festivals, especially in Hip Hop & R&B.” – says Shawn Gee, President of Live Nation Urban.
