Public invited to Band & Brew Crawl where artists put on show of their careers in Ocean Beach

Springboard West Music Festival, dubbed the “music discovery festival”, is back in San Diego for its third year in a row. For three days, emerging artists from all over the world, industry professionals and locals will gather in Ocean Beach to celebrate the future of music.

“Band Bootcamp”

The conference and festival mashup begins on Jan. 10 with a two-day “Band Bootcamp” where 40 bands and 10 solo artists cherry picked from the over 3,000 submissions will attend workshops, panels and pitch sessions with veterans and professionals in the music industry.

This year’s confirmed mentors include Guns N’ Roses’ first manager, Vicky Hamilton, award winning producer, Dale Penner, and casting directors from “American Idol”, “The Voice” and “The Four”.

Band & Brew Crawl

Springboard West culminates Jan. 12 with the wildly popular Band & Brew Crawl, which will feature all 50 artists performing at the following OB venues:

  • Winston’s,
  • OB Theatre,
  • The Harp,
  • Mother’s Saloon and,
  • new this year, Te Mana Cafe

The Band & Brew Crawl is open to the public.

The founder and creator of Springboard Music Festival, Barry Coffing, had this to say:

“All of the mentors and industry experts are donating their time to give back to the next generation of independent artists. I am so excited to see how our impact on the lives of everyone involved has grown, mine included.”

Springboard Music Festival made its way to San Diego in 2017 after years of uber-success in Houston. In the past, the festival has mentored and featured over 500 artists and assisted with over 100 career-changing deals including recording, management and publishing contracts.
