first-city-260x260Did you know that Monterey lays claim to being the first capitol of California? Because I sure as shit didn’t, but that fact is the impetus for naming the city’s newly announced First City Festival. Slated to take place on August 24 & 25, at the Monterey County Fair and Even Center, First City will boast a lineup of 30 some acts including Okkervil River, Passion Pit, Modest Mouse and Father John Misty as well as fine food and drink, carnival rides and a breathtaking view of the Northern California Coastline. Tickets go on sale on May 31 and will run you $149.50 for General Admission, $279.50 for VIP Treatment (details pending) and an extra $22 for unlimited carnival rides. There’ll be a layaway plan as well which is awesome for those of us who are dead broke. Full lineup and flyer below.
