Oakland’s Art + Soul Festival July 27 & 28, 2019

Oakland’s Art + Soul returned for another great weekend! Now in its 19th year, the street party is more than just an art and music showcase. Oakland’s Art + Soul is a celebration of Oakland and all the creatives in its community. Attendees were treated to fantastic weather, great vibes, delicious bites, stunning art and, yes, (of course!) brilliant musicians. Grammy winners Estelle and Fantastic Negrito headlined Saturday and Sunday, respectively, and audiences were not disappointed. Their performances were strong, heartfelt and kept the fans dancing. The Grammy winners were not the only notable performances; Kinetic Arts Center dazzled audiences with multiple circus-type performances per day; the Jazz Mafia stage featured not only Jazz Mafia’s talented musicians but a host of local guest vocalists and MCs; and the Plaza Stage held pro dance performances by the Bay Area’s best dancers. Without a doubt Oakland’s Art + Soul is THE summer party you need to get to!
