After a successful debut in 2022, the Mill Valley Music Festival is scheduled to return to the Bay Area in 2023 for its second edition with bigger names and longer hours. Cake, as well as Michael Franti & Spearhead, will headline the event, set for the 13th-14th. May at Friends Field, next to the Mill Valley Community Center, in Mill Valley, California.
After selling out as a one-day event last year headlined by folk artist Ben Harper, the festival has expanded to a weekend-long format with more musical acts, local artists and food vendors.
A rapper and singer-songwriter, Michael Franti is a fixture on the Bay Area’s music festival circuit. The Oakland native played a set at BottleRock in Napa last year and is scheduled to appear in late May at the California Roots Music and Arts Festival in Monterey.
