Kaki King along with her stringed friends which include the Oviation and a harp guitar are bringing their acoustic roots sound to Bayfront Park. She received a Golden Globe Best Original Score nomination for Sean Penn’s Into the Wild and was featured on the Grammy nominated soundtrack for August Rush.

Million Young and his chillwave sound will warm up the crowd with a mix of electronic beats, sampled elements and cool vocals.
