Beck, The National, Phantogram Headline First City Festival in Monterey

May 05 at 11am

It's hard to remember the days when we bemoaned the fact that the greater Bay Area lacked in giant music festivals. Now we have Outside Lands, Treasure Island – and for the second year in a row, First City Festival, produced by Goldenvoice, the folks behind that little concert called Coachella. 

First City is down at the Monterey County Fair and Event Center August 23-24 – that's the same month as Outside Lands – and you can grab tickets starting on Friday at 10 a.m. Two-day passes are $159.50, with VIP passes at $289.50. And for those of you worried about the drive, there will be shuttle options available starting Friday as well. But what you really want to know is who's playing, right? Here's the list:
