Rebels & Renegades Music Festival

The 2023 Rebels & Renegades Music Festival will break all the rules when it arrives at the Monterey County Fairgrounds this fall. Taking place from Oct. 6 through Oct. 8, this three-day event is one of the biggest music festivals on the West Coast. The electrifying and eclectic lineup of musical acts set to hit the stage on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday brings together soulful artists representing the genres of folk, bluegrass, roots, Americana, Texas country, and more. In fact, the only rule here is that there's no rule when it comes to genre. Expect the crowd to be full of hippies, cowboys, dreamers, and anyone who simply loves a good time. While this is only the second Rebels & Renegades festival, the event has already earned a reputation for creating a laid-back, good-vibes-only atmosphere where people of all musical tastes can feel right at home!
