Event Details

Part of the Summer and Music (SAM). Local and regional bands perform on four stages set up on flatbed trucks with minimal plugged-in equipment, busking for wooden nickels. Often serving as a launch pad for the careers of local musicians, this good-natured competition draws thousands who cheer for their favorite acts and dance in the streets.

Now in its 10th year, Summer And Music (SAM) is Downtown Long Beach’s homegrown concert series, providing an entire summer of free music to the public.

Produced by the Downtown Long Beach Alliance (DLBA), SAM has been voted OC Weekly’s “Best Music Festival” three times in a row and awarded the 2018 Spirit of Downtown Award for its display of local acts at outdoor venues.

With performances spanning the genres of indie rock, jazz, pop, rockabilly, punk, funk and then some, there will truly be something for everyone to listen to and love all summer long.
