On Saturday, June 15, the East Side will be alive for the 2024 Summer Soulstice Music Festival. In addition to the oodles of food vendors and retailers taking over various thoroughfares and side streets surrounding the intersection of North and Farwell (as well as a portion of Murray Avenue and the alleyway beside Kind Oasis), the area will also be buzzing with an abundance of local musicians.

Between noon and midnight, the event will feature a wide variety of bands, rappers, singer-songwriters, and other homegrown talent performing on five different stages. Black Cat Alley will also be bumping with an all-day/night DJ dance party. Today, the East Side Business Improvement District announced the Summer Soulstice Music Festival lineup and, as usual, it’s a great blend of some of the region’s best acts. Make Summer Soulstice part of your plans for this event-packed festival season and check out the full musical lineup below.
