SACRAMENTO, CA (MAY 3, 2022) – Local organizers behind Sacramento's largest festival dedicated to R&B and soul music successfully kicked off the third Sol Blume this past weekend while welcoming 40,000 total attendees from across the globe and creating a multi-million dollar economic impact for the greater Sacramento region.

Considered one of the country's top emerging music festivals since its inception in 2018, the springtime outdoor music festival was revitalized after a three-year hiatus to become one of the largest annual R&B events in the country, while expanding to two days and relocating to a new home at Discovery Park near downtown Sacramento. Attendees this year traveled across the country from 46 U.S. states, more than five international countries crossing four continents including Canada, England, Spain, Germany, Australia, and Japan.

With a continued emphasis on positivity, diversity and inclusivity, Sol Blume, this year’s festival once again brought together local residents and travelers alike to gather together and enjoy incredible music performances featuring more than 40 of today's most sought-after R&B, soul, and hip-hop acts - many of whom were performing in Sacramento for the first time ever.

Festival organizers were proud to offer a festival lineup this spring that was entirely headlined by female music performers. Headlining acts on Saturday night featured Jorja Smith and Jazmine Sullivan, followed by Jhené Aiko and Summer Walker who helped close out the festival on Sunday night.

Additional performers included Thundercat, Alina Baraz, Syd, SiR, Lucky Daye, Smino, Blxst, Tinashe, Majid Jordan, and DVSN, among many others. This year’s lineup also feature several acts with local Sacramento roots including Victoria Monét and Yelly.

This year’s festival went beyond the main stage music performances to include a variety of family-friendly activities, wellness experiences, immersive art activations, and local vendors from across the Sacramento region. Notable experiential offerings offered complimentary to all attendees included the first-ever Sol Blume Butterfly House where fans could interact with live butterflies with the help of experienced butterfly handlers; a Silent Disco roller skating rink; yoga and meditation; and so much more.

Festival organizers would also like to thank all of the 2022 partners and sponsors who helped make this year’s event possible, including Pandora, D'usse, Jack Daniel's Distillery, Red Bull, Tequila Herradura, Pacifico Beer, Helbiz, and McBride Sisters' Black Girl Magic Wines.
