SF Bay Area Holistic Calendar

The Front Porch Music Festival @ Wente Vineyards

Saturday, September 3, 2016 from 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM (PDT)

Wente Vineyards Estate Tasting Room
5565 Tesla Road,
Livermore, CA 94550

Enjoy a full day of renowned independent music and fine wine, hosted by Fifth Generation Winemaker, Karl Wente. Karl explains, “These shows actually all started on the front porch of my house. Bands and artists that were rolling through the area would end up back at my place for dinner, hanging out and jamming with my band.  It’s really just about bringing people together... good music, wine and friends.”  Wente Vineyards has also been an avid proponent of the arts and has had a long history of supporting their community.  The festival will feature local food vendors, as well as regionally based musicians.

Just 45 miles east of San Francisco, the Livermore Valley makes the ultimate music festival destination, with its picturesque setting of rolling vineyards and hills. Wente states, “The Bay Area has some of the most original and interesting independent bands, and what better way to enjoy them than with a glass of wine and surrounded by the serene beauty of the Livermore Valley”.  In true festival form, the winery will have two different venues on property for the concurrent performances, one on the front lawn, where guests will be able to enjoy the afternoon with chairs and blankets, and another in the barrel room, with acoustic performances.

Outdoor stage:  Hot Buttered Rum, Wolf Hamlin & The Front Porch Drifters, David Luning, Elliott Randall & The Deadmen, Night Harvest and Garage Band Academy

Barrel Room stage (acoustic performances):  Kingsborough, Peter Case, Matt EL, Danny Click, Jules

Cost: $38 advanced/$45 at the door
