Now in its seventh year, Sacramento’s own SXSWthe TBD Festival—has just announced its lineup for 2014. Set to take place October 3 through October 5 in venues across the city, this year’s TBD Fest’s rocking lineup includes sets from Explosions in the Sky, Blondie, Kurt Vile and the Violators, The War on Drugs, DIIV, YACHT, Deltron 3030, MS MR, HAERTS, Com Truise, Teen Daze, Cherub, Goldroom, and more, as well as a DJ set by Justice. Tickets are available now through the festival’s website—a three-day general admission pass will run you about $159 (plus taxes and fees, of course), and a three-day VIP pass sets you back $250.

Originally known as Launch, TBD Fest was founded in 2007 by Michael Hargis, who wanted to celebrate Sacramento’s creative community. The event took place for four years at the Green Hotel before being transformed into the multi-day, multi-venue extravaganza that it is today. Successful and indie bands alike have taken the TBD Fest stage, with past sets performed by artists like DJ Shadow, The Joy Formidable, Grouplove, Future Islands, Chromeo, Surfer Blood, Geographer, St. Lucia, Girl Talk, and Imagine Dragons. The focus of the festival is to bring relevant, fresh talent to Sacramento’s scene.
