An Annual Affair
Come What Manifesto
Singing and telling stories around the fire has been a human tradition from time immemorial, serving the purpose of bringing folks together to share in their life experience, to find common ground, and to strengthen bonds of community - among many other things. In today's age it is not so easy to find the time or place for such a thing, as elemental as it is.
The Come What May Music Festival has a simple premise based on this ancient idea; there will be delicious food, good drink, camping, and a variety of games and activities. There will be one stage under an oak tree host to a handful of specially selected, world class bands. There will be collaboration with the local community and Los Angeles based outreach groups GetLit and ArtWorx LA. And all this will be centered around one large, welcoming bonfire. In fact, our festival is a continuation of a music party that has been occurring in this exact location since the 1970's! We are honored to carry on the tradition.
Come What May will take place the weekend of May 26th-28th, 2017, in beautiful wine country just north of Santa Barbara. We are delighted to invite you to this special gathering.
