Two stages, 10 bands and a scheduled 8 ½ hours of music capped by Sacramento’s own Cake will highlight Saturday’s first ever City of Trees summer concert at Gibson Ranch County Park.

Cake takes the main stage at 8pm to lead an eclectic bill sponsored by radio station 94.7 that features everything from Halsey, featured last Sunday in an extensive New York Times article, British crooner James Bay, to the alternative visual experience of BØRNS.

Gates open at 1:30 pm and the first act, The Moth & and the Flame, will kick things off at 2:20 at the Music Discovery Stage. Sharing the bill, in order of appearance, will be Halsey, Night Riots, New Politics, BØRNS. James Bay, Elle King, Of Monsters and Men, and Cake.

All ages are welcome. Premium parking is available for $25, though general parking is free. VIP seats are sold out, but tickets for general admission entry at $49.50, no service charges (kids 10 and under accompanied by an adult are free) were still available at press time. Gibson Ranch County Park is located at 8556 Gibson Ranch Park Road, Elverta.
