Good Vibez Presents, the creative geniuses behind the beloved California Roots Music & Arts Festival, are pleased to announce the second round of artists to play Rebels & Renegades, a 2-day music festival taking place October 15-16 at the Monterey Fair & Event Center in Monterey, CA, the once home to the famous Monterey Pop Festival.
Announced today, Shooter Jennings & the Werewolves of LA do “Zevon”, White Buffalo, Tejon Street Corner Thieves, and Claire Wright will join an already stacked lineup including Cody Jinks, Trampled by Turtles, Orville Peck, Houndmouth, The Cadillac Three, Shane Smith and The Saints, Nikki Lane, Sierra Hull, Fruition, Charles Wesley Godwin, Kat Hasty, and Myron Elkins.
The team behind Rebels & Renegades, Good Vibez Presents, were inspired by the rebellious spirit and storytelling culture of Americana, outlaw country, bluegrass, and folk artists of today, saluting the outlaw in all of us with this year’s musical and non-musical offerings. In an interview with Monterey Herald, Dan Sheehan, part owner of Good Vibez, said, “The biggest thing that all these bands have in common, regardless of the genre of music they play, is they’re all storytellers. Our whole model is hippies and cowboys. That’s kind of who’s coming to this. A mix of those styles and people, so it should be a lot of fun.” Rebels & Renegades is a three-year dream in the making, one that will establish a new music experience in Monterey, full of down-to-earth music, interactive art opportunities, and local craft and food creatives. “Our vision has always been to bring music that we love to the town we call home,” said Amy Sheehan, Monterey-local and part owner of the festival.
The festival, a multidimensional experience, will feature, in addition to mainstage performances from the aforementioned artists, interactive art stations, a local “makers” marketplace, and delicious food from some of Monterey Bay’s most creative chefs. Intimate acoustic pop up performances will be scattered throughout the famed grounds as well as craft beer, wine, cider and spirit bars. Limited onsite RV sites and exceptional VIP experiences and travel packages are available to those who want to elevate their festival experience.

Make it a long weekend: Monterey, CA is a bucket-list vacation destination, especially in October with the temperatures topping out in the mid 70s. Fans traveling to the festival are encouraged to explore the Big Sur coastline of the iconic Highway 1, wander the historic Cannery Row, visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium, sip local wine at tucked-away tasting rooms, play 18 holes at one of the many golf courses, go whale and dolphin watching, or picnic at one of Monterey’s beaches. Come for the music, but give yourself a few days on either side to soak up all the goodness that this California Coast has to offer.
