    Renowned for consistently delivering a vibe-blending lineup to the iconic Pacific Avenue, the festival organizers have made no exception for this year’s larger-than-life roster, uniting a spicy mix of local bass and global beats for the marathon music weekend. Headliners Jai Wolf, Hippie Sabotage, Minnesota and Mikey Lion will make their way to one of the biggest parties of the year to join nearly 200 other artists.

    The Catalyst Club will return with West Coast Bass Takeovers curated by Vital Events & Euphonic Conceptions, and featuring sound selectors Thriftworks, Zeke Beats plus a legendary Stylust b2b Pigeon Hole set. Locals are in for an extra special treat as hometown hero Shlump will return to shut things down at the Catalyst Club for a mind-bending closing set this fall.

    Presented by Summit Boys, The Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium will welcome tropical sounds of Autograf,  LA-based, multi-faceted producer Louis Futon, and the silky smooth Sweater Beats — to name just a few of the names hitting the best coast. Take a break from dancing under a roof to get weird under the sun because SCMF is primed to host its House Music BBQ in San Lorenzo Park this year. Joining headliner Mikey Lion in the park is fellow Desert Hearts, and self proclaimed rabble-rouser, Porky who will serve up techno alongside Rachel Torro, Mr. Bounceman, and Kyle Warren. Also found in San Lorenzo Park will be all of the makings for a Sunday Funday: BBQ on the grill, a sprawling Beer Garden and VIP Bar.

    You may recognize some of the party crews who have come together to elevate the festival experience. Spanning the entire state of California, these crews are taking over Santa Cruz to produce one unforgettable weekend.
