First Festival


Sacramento's grass roots music festival

OLEANDER joins First Fest for 2017 Lineup


Oleander came to prominence in the late 1990s and early '00s, releasing February Son (1999) and Unwind (2001) before moving over to Sanctuary for Joyride (2003). Hailing from Sacramento, the band built up a healthy following of fans and garnered radio support, thanks to their melodic, post-grunge sound. In 2012, under a major label, they released Something Beautiful with a special release party at local hot spot venue, The Boardwalk. 

Oleander, a nationally touring band is the biggest Sacramento act to take the stage at First Festival bolstering the all local festival to the next level. Most recently hitting the local stage at the the Thunder Valley Summer Concert Series, they're coming back to put on a show alongside several other Sacramento acts that include the popular Arden Park Roots and Some Fear None. Aside from professionally rocking for more than 2 decades, the guys in Oleander are some of the nicest and down to earth musicians out there. 

Tickets are on Early Bird sale right now at the lowest price of the year. Check out the lineup for one day for $15 or get the whole weekend for $25. As tickets sell, more bands will be added.
