Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music

Artists come to the Cabrillo Festival to challenge themselves and play at the top of their game; and audiences come with open minds and open ears to listen, learn, and celebrate with a shared spirit of adventure. It is that confluence of passions, excitement and artistic excellence, that makes one season more remarkable than the next.
