Popular Sacramento R&B festival expands in 2024. Here are the dates — and when to buy tickets

One of the largest R&B music festivals in Northern California has announced its dates for 2024, and for the first time next spring, it will expand to a three-day event.

Sol Blume will return to Sacramento’s Discovery Park for its fifth-ever jamboree on May 3-5. Previously, the staple R&B event was a two-day event.

The 2024 lineup is expected to be announced at a later date early next year, according to a news release from festival organizers.

The festival, founded by ENT Legends in 2017 with its first edition held in 2018, set a Sol Blume record this August, attracting more than 46,000 attendees to the function to see artists such as Kehlani and Brent Faiyaz perform.

The 2023 festival was rescheduled to August due to severe rainstorms Sacramento experienced this spring, around the originally scheduled April dates.

Sol Blume’s 2022 festival marked its first held at Discovery Park, an upgrade from the previous site, Cesar Chavez Plaza, in downtown Sacramento during the single-day showcases in 2018 and 2019. The festival was not held in 2020 or 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
