Shabang 8 Music and Art Festival

Bringing love for live music to the central coast, Shabang is a biannual music festival that was born in SLO’s own backyard. What started as a few friends and a guitar has become a celebration of life, music, and breathtaking scenery, all driven by a mission of supporting our local community. 

Each time we give a big donation to a local charity voted on by our fans; in the past we have gifted enough musical equipment to the SLO Boy’s and Girl’s Club to start a music class, and also have donated to the ECHO Homeless Shelter so they could purchase food, hygiene products, and various supplies for their clients. This installment of the festival will benefit The Women's Shelter of San Luis Obispo County, who will purchase food, clothes, personal hygiene items, and other resources for their emergency shelter with the donation.

On May 6th fans will gather at Laguna Lake Park 2-9p.m. to enjoy life and good tunes. There will be several acts over the course of the night, food trucks, artistic demonstrations, games and more. 

We pride ourselves on being an event that brings together some of the greatest aspects of life, all while making a positive impact on our community. We'll see you there!
