Sacramento’s Sol Blume is Back April 27th — and Bringing Miguel and J.I.D. with them

Alright. Ya’ll know how much I love music, and music festivals are kinda my thing. There is nothing I love more than Festival Season. Which means that you know it gives me ALL the joy to be able to announce the line up for Sacramento’s own, home grown vibe of a festival — Sol Blume.

Under normal circumstances folks go to festivals expecting to turn up, rage, mosh, and all the other hyperbolic words that you can find to describe what these 20 years olds can manage to pull off at a festival, all while running solely on energy drinks and nacho fries. Here’s why I fuck with Sol Blume: They are dedicated to showcasing the kind of vibes that, to be real, a lot of festivals probably shy away from. You might see a sprinkling of the soulful wave here in there in the festival rosters, but for the most part, if your name doesn’t start with Lil… you might not be the thing they are looking for. Sol Blume is aiming to change that.

“Our Sol Blume team couldn’t be more proud to unveil this year’s lineup, which we have been hard at work on since wrapping up year one last spring. After the overwhelmingly positive and supportive feedback we received last year, we plan to raise the festival to even greater heights and bring a better on-site experience for all our attendees,” said festival co-founders and executive producers Justin Nordan and Fornati Kumeh. “Creating and producing this event is an amazing milestone for Sacramento’s thriving music community, and we just couldn’t be more excited about what the future holds for our team.”

This year, the line up is stacked, with a beautiful balance of huge headline names and up and coming artists making current waves. Let’s face it though — this is me, which means I am going to first talk about the one that made me go OHHHHHHHHHH HELL YES.

Yeah. That Miguel. That beautiful, we don’t deserve his voice or his swag, makes your panties some how melt and catch on fire at the same time, Miguel.
Miguel is our headliner for Sol Blume.
The Universe DOES love me. I knew it.

Especially because not only is Miguel coming through, but J.I.D (fuck yes), Queen Najia, Jessie Reyez, and Masego (Ta-DOW baby) are coming along for the ride. While those are the names that may catch the most eyes, there are so many layers to the folks coming along for the journey. This whole festival is a celebration of music and vibes from all over the world, and I am locing the diversity of styles and genres blending together dam near seamlessly.

Additional 2019 festival performers will include Lady Lady; Atlanta-based singer, songwriter, and producer Summer Walker, who will be performing in support of her full-length debut album, Last Day of Summer, released last October; and 2019 Grammy Award-nominated rapper Tierra Whack, best known for her critically acclaimed debut album, Whack World, released last May.Indian-American R&B singer Raveena; Swedish singer-songwriter Snoh Aalegra, Los Angeles-based singer and actress Kiana Ledé; rapper Tobi Lou, hailing from Chicago by way of Nigeria; singer Jess Connelly from the Philippines; and Philadelphia-based rapper/singer Ivy Sole. Several up-and-coming artists with Seattle roots are also set to perform, including exciting emcee Dave B; 19-year-old singer/songwriter/producer Parisalexa; and Seattle-born, LA-based songstress UMI.
