Rebels & Renegades Festival Reveals MASSIVE 2023 Lineup

There is yet another massive music festival that has emerged to cover the surging interest in independent country, roots music, and Americana, putting deserving artists in headliner spots as opposed to just opening slots, and has fans from across the country rearranging vacation plans.

Rebels & Renegades started in 2022 as a two-day festival with Cody Jinks and Trampled by Turtles headlining on the Monterey Country Fairgrounds. This is where Jimi Hendrix famously lit his guitar on fire at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival, mere steps from the Pacific Ocean. Now for 2023, they’ve upped the festival to three days, and put together one of the most mouth-watering lineups you will find in all of independent country/Americana all year.

Featuring the Turnpike Troubadours, Whiskey Myers, and Wilco as headliners, Rebels & Renegades will finally be the massive independent country destination festival California has needed for years now. The undercard is ridiculous as well, with Molly Tuttle, Mike and the Moonpies, American Aquarium, Morgan Wade, Brent Cobb, The Steel Woods, The War and Treaty, Charley Crockett, Vincent Neil Emerson, Sierra Ferrel, Shane Smith and the Saints, Whitey Morgan, Flatland Cavalry, and so many more set to perform.

The festival is being promoted by Good Vibez, which has been doing events and festivals in California and other locations since 2003. Like so many others, they see the rapid growth in the independent country and roots space, and want to get in on it.

“We strive to give artists a hospitable, safe, and comfortable environment where creativity can thrive. And we work to give fans the coveted you-had-to-be-there memory with every ticket,” says Amy Sheehan of Good Vibez. “It’s more than just what or who is on stage; it’s the food, the drinks, the art installations, the commitment to safety, and the friendliness of our staff.”

Tickets go on sale on April 11. For more information, go to .
