26 music festivals coming to Southern California and beyond in 2023 – Orange County Register

In 2022, we attended some of the biggest and best festivals out there like the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, it’s country counterpart Stagecoach, the multi-genre Latin fest Bèsame Mucho, the indie rock Just Like Heaven Festival, the DIY fest Viva! Pomona and 88 Risings’ Head In The Clouds.

Next year, we expect to hit even more.

Much like the lineup of festivals this year, there are a lot of returning favorites in 2023, but a few new ones, too. Whether you consider yourself a metal head, raver, reggae fantastic, rocker or even a jazz connoisseur, there’s a festival for it happening in Southern California and beyond in the new year.

Here’s how the festival season is shaping up so far. A few on the list have only announced dates, locations and put a limited amount of tickets on sale, so keep checking those official websites for the most updated information. Ticket price ranges vary, and some tiered admission passes may no longer be available.
