Main Street Summer Soulstice
Summer Soulstice first took place in 2001, as small business owners around Santa Monica’s biggest shopping district, Main Street, looked to entertain and attract weekend farmer’s market patrons. At the time, the event featured a single, makeshift stage, and a couple of speakers. Now, 16 years later, the festival has grown to include over 24 different bands on six different stages. Final music line-ups for this year have not yet been solidified, but visitors can expect a wide variety of artists, from Grateful Dead cover bands, to indie and ethereal chanteuses. Joining in the fun are local merchants throwing mini sidewalk sales, and beer and wine gardens to help create a lively, convivial atmosphere.
