Springboard West Music Festival, dubbed the “music discovery festival,” is back in San Diego for its third consecutive year from Jan. 10-12. 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.  

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 Vicky Hamilton, Guns N’ Roses’ first manager, award-winning producer Dale Penner, and casting directors from “American Idol,” “The Voice” and “The Four.”

Springboard West culminates Jan. 12 with the popular Band & Brew Crawl, which will feature all 50 artists performing at Winston’s, OB Theatre, The Harp, Mother’s Saloon and OB Brewery. The Band & Brew Crawl is open to the public.

“All of the mentors and industry experts are donating their time to give back to the next generation of independent artists,” says Barry Coffing, founder and creator of SpringboardMusic Festival. “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 success in Houston. In the past, the festival has mentored and featured more than 500 artists and assisted with more than 100 career-changing deals including recording, management and publishing contracts. Check out “The Springboard Effect” success stories at springboardwest.com/impact.

Tickets to the Band and Brew Crawl are $20 and may be purchased at eventbrite.com. All proceeds benefit local nonprofits, Autism Tree Project Foundation, Pioneer Day School, as well as Sustainable Artists, which is focused on helping artists create a balance between artistic focus and economic reality.
