ORIGINAL POST: KX 93.5, the only FM radio station in Laguna Beach, announces its first “Festival of Music” on Nov. 2, 2013 at Laguna’s Festival of Arts Grounds from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
The lineup includes Huntington singer/songwriter Matt Costa, Colin Hay from Men at Work, Los Angeles indie duo Trapdoor Social and Grammy-nominated blues rocker Deborah Magone. All funds from the festival will benefit future programs for non-profits KX 93.5, Mauli Ola Foundation, Tony Hawk Foundation, and the Boys and Girls Club of Laguna Beach.
This is the first music festival at this intimate setting approved by the Laguna Beach City Council and the Irvine Bowl Policy Committee in almost 10 years.
“We are honored the committee has trusted us to put on a music festival at this historic Laguna Beach location,” said KX 93.5 Program Director Tyler Russell. “We aim for the first ‘KX 93.5 Festival of Music’ to be a very important fundraiser for our public radio station and these other great, local causes.”
The KX 93.5 Festival of Music welcomes local vendors, sponsors, food trucks and beverage companies. Tito’s Vodka and Tres Sietes Tequila are the exclusive drink partners. A live auction with autographed items will add to the evening’s spirit of giving.
Tivoli Terrace will host the limited “VIP Experience,” featuring complimentary cocktails, dinner, gift bags, seating and a meet-n-greet with radio hosts and talent. The “VIP Experience” ticket is $150.
General admission is $35. Limited height beach chairs or blankets will be permitted for more comfortable seating on the grass.
