For the first time in Fresno State’s history, music lovers are invited to University President Joseph I. Castro’s home for a day of live music. KFSR Fest, benefiting the Fresno State-based, non-profit radio station, will be held from 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Saturday, June 27, at the University House (4411 N. Van Ness Blvd.) in Fresno’s Old Fig Garden neighborhood.

The festival will feature three live bands on three stages throughout the day.

The KFSR Jazz Stage will feature Rumba 32 along with special guests, the KFSR Blues Stage will feature the A.C. Myles Blues Review and the KFSR Evening Eclectic Stage will feature alternative band Sea of Sound with special guests.

A limited amount of tickets are available for $25 and include a picnic lunch. Tickets can be purchased in advance online. If tickets are still available the day of the festival, they can be purchased at the gate for $30.

Seating is festival-style and ticket holders are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and picnic blankets. No umbrellas or coolers will be permitted. The picnic lunch that comes with admission will include a Fresno State “Bulldog” gourmet hotdog, chips, cookie and a drink. Beer and water will be available to purchase.
