Festival Description

The Carlsbad Music Festival is an annual alternative classical music festival featuring the next generation of cutting-edge, world-class musicians premiering new works and performing fresh and compelling music in concert and in the community. The annual festival brings together some of the country’s most talented young performers and composers, all with a keen sense of musical adventure, for our most exciting season yet.

The Carlsbad Music Festival was founded in 2003 by composer, Matt McBane for its first festival in the spring of 2004. It has since received great press and drawn large and enthusiastic audiences to its concerts in the coastal California city of Carlsbad.
