Petaluma, California, June 28, 2016 - This marks the ninth year for what has become one of the most highly regarded events on the West Coast summer music festival circuit. The Petaluma Music Festival takes place on Saturday, August 6th, 2016, at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds & Event Center in Petaluma, CA.
 
With past festival performances by national acts like Trombone Shorty, Galactic, The Devil Makes Three, The Wood Brothers, Nahko and Medicine for the People, and Xavier Rudd, festival goers are always treated to a family-friendly event with a unique variety of indie-band music for people of all ages.
 
This year is no exception, and jam band fans will have themselves a dream lineup.  Performing at the 2016 Petaluma Music Festival are roots-rock bluesman Jackie Greene, the psychedelic rock of Steve Kimock & Friends, the California rock and soul of The Mother Hips, the jam band Americana of the David Nelson Band, folk-roots and jam band Moonalice, local Americana-folk singer-songwriter David Luning, the pure dance funk of Joy & Madness, the gritty and high-energy folk of The Sam Chase, and artist-at-large-Mark Karan.  Joining these headliners are Bay Area favorites The Highway Poets, Kingsborough, MoeTar, The Melt, Saffell, and The Grain.
 
Rounding out the day are a silent auction, a celebrity autographed guitar raffle, a kids area, free drinking water, and a variety of specialty food, craft, and merchandise vendors.  The presenting community partner is the Lagunitas Brewing Company.
