TBD Fest, Sacramento’s revamped music festival, is coming back better than ever with 3 days of music and will continue building off LAUNCH’s previous success for the last 7 years. A new venue is being built at the River Walk in West Sacramento for the festival that will be taking place October 3, 4 & 5, this year.
Sacramento will enjoy 3 days of headliners and more impressive supporting acts than ever with the likes of Empire of the Sun, Justice, Blackalicious, RAC, Dillon Francis, and more.
Empire of the Sun and Justice are both international electronic duos. Justice originates from Paris, France, consisting of Graspard Michel Andre Auge and Xavier de Rosnay. The French duo has headlined other major music festivals such as Coachella, San Francisco’s Outsidelands and Chicago’s Lollapalooza. Empire of the Sun is an Australian electronic music duo formed in 2008 and had instant success with popular hits “We are the People” and “Walking on a Dream.”
Sacramento’s Blackalicious will also be making their music festival debut at this year’s TBD Festival. This local hip hop duo consists of rapper Gift of Gab, also known as Timothy Parker, and DJ/producer known as Chief Xcel. They’ve made four LPs: Nia (1999), Blazing Arrow (2002), The Craft (2005), and will be releasing their latest LP, Emoni, in July 2014.
Supporting acts Dillon Francis and RAC are two DJ/producers that are rising on the music festival scene. Dillon Francis is an American electronic DJ/producer, whereas, RAC, or Remix Artist Collective, has a pop vibe to his sounds. RAC recently released his music video for his popular hit “Cheap Sunglasses” and remix of “Hollywood” by Penguin Prison.
