Ojai Music Festival

Here in the 805 we have some of the most world-renown arts festivals in the United States. In Santa Barbara we have the annual Santa Barbara Film Festival, which has grown into a major force in the international film world, now being the closest thing to the Cannes Film Festival in the Western Hemisphere. Others try to claim this title of course, but Santa Barbara’s Film Festival walks its talk. In the realm of music, and more precisely New Music, the Ojai Music Festival has garnered a world-wide reputation unique to itself.

Running for four days [this year the Ojai Music Festival will run from Thursday 7 June through Sunday 10 June 2018, at various venues] the festival continues to bring the leading edge of musical composition and performance to our ears.
