Last year the OMF team unleashed a new and fresh showcase theme called Oakland Music Festival. Headlinng some of the highest name artists in Hip Hop as Dom Kennedy and SZA, OMF gave a spectacular boost to Oakland’s ever expanding musical abyss to further heights, all within its city limits. Now with the stakes for this year being twice as great, we at All Bay Music will release rare archived footage from the FIRST anual to relive the magic days before the second annual gathering of OMF. Pictures following the lineup below. Tickets available here. See you Saturday under the lights.
