FEATURED FESTIVAL LINEUP HEADLINED BY ALL FEMALE ACTS
The third annual Sol Blume festival took place in Sacramento, CA, from May 3-4, 2022, and was a huge success, drawing in 40,000 attendees from across the globe. The festival is the largest R&B and soul music festival in Sacramento, and has quickly gained a reputation as one of the top emerging music festivals in the country since its inception in 2018.
This year's festival was particularly special, as it marked the return of Sol Blume after a three-year hiatus. The festival expanded to two days and moved to a new location in Discovery Park near downtown Sacramento, allowing for an even bigger and better experience for all attendees.
Sol Blume has always been about promoting positivity, diversity, and inclusivity, and this year's festival was no exception. The festival organizers wanted to create an environment where locals and visitors from all over the world could come together and enjoy incredible music performances, while also engaging in a variety of family-friendly activities, wellness experiences, immersive art activations, and supporting local vendors from the Sacramento region.
Over the two-day festival, attendees were treated to over 40 performances from today's most sought-after R&B, soul, and hip-hop acts. Festival-goers traveled from 46 US states, as well as more than five international countries spanning four continents, including Canada, England, Spain, Germany, Australia, and Japan, to experience the incredible music lineup.
One of the highlights of this year's festival was the fact that the entire lineup was exclusively headlined by female music performers. Jorja Smith and Jazmine Sullivan kicked off the festival on Saturday night, followed by Jhené Aiko and Summer Walker, who closed 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.
In addition to the main stage performances, the festival also offered a range of experiential offerings to attendees. These 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 sessions, and much more.
The festival organizers would like to thank all of the partners and sponsors who helped make this year's event possible. These included Pandora, D'usse, Jack Daniel's Distillery, Red Bull, Tequila Herradura, Pacifico Beer, Helbiz, and McBride Sisters' Black Girl Magic Wines.
Looking ahead to next year, Sol Blume is already planning to return in the spring of 2023. Fans can stay up to date on all the latest festival news and announcements by visiting the Sol Blume website or following them on social media.
