Bringing love for live music to the central coast, Shabang is an annual music festival that was born in San Luis Obispo’s backyard. What started as a few friends and a guitar has become a celebration of life, music, and breathtaking scenery, all driven by a mission of bringing music to the forefront of San Luis Obispo’s community. A portion of the profits generated from Shabang is given to a local non-profit that is chosen by attendees in the weeks prior to the event. In the past, the event has gifted enough musical equipment to the SLO Boy’s and Girl’s Club to start a music class.
Every year, fans gather at Laguna Lake Park in San Luis Obispo to enjoy life and good tunes. Over the course of the day, fans enjoy a multitude of talented musical acts, incredible meals from local food trucks, awe-inspiring artistic demonstrations, group games and more. Shabang prides itself on being an event that brings together some of the greatest aspects of life, all while making a positive impact on the community.
On Saturday, May 4th, Shabang is Reborn. More music, more art, and more activities than ever before. The sun will be shining and the trees will be singing.
