Following a successful debut in 2022, the Mill Valley Music Festival is scheduled to return to the Bay Area in 2023 for its second edition, with bigger names and a longer runtime. Cake, as well as Michael Franti & Spearhead, will headline the event set for May 13-14 at Friends Field, next to the Mill Valley Community Center, in Mill Valley, California.
After selling out as a one-day event last year with folk artist Ben Harper headlining, the festival has expanded to a weekend-long format, with more musical acts, local artists and food vendors.
A rapper and singer-songwriter, Michael Franti is a regular on the Bay Area music festival circuit. The Oakland native played a set at BottleRock in Napa last year and is scheduled to appear in late May at the California Roots Music and Arts Festival in Monterey .
