Sacramento is home to a new festival called Sol Blume, which definitely sounds worth the road trip for our readers in the Bay Area. The independently booked event, now in its second year, takes place on April 27 at Cesar Chavez Plaza, and stars Miguel, the R&B and neo-soul singer responsible for hits like the Prince-inspired “Told You So” and sun-soaked summer jam “Sky Walker.”

Tierra Whack, one of the most creative and imaginative rappers out, joins Miguel on the bill. Whack made KQED Arts’ Top 20 Albums of 2018 list with her delightfully weird debut, Whack World, which accomplishes the impressive feat of building complex fictional worlds in one-minute tracks that draw from R&B, trap and even country.

Rising indie folk star and filmmaker Jessie Reyez, who has written lyrics for pop stars like Dua Lipa and Normani, is also on the bill. She made waves last year with her soulfully sung “Body Count,” where her raspy voice takes center stage over sparse, acoustic instrumentation. Producer, singer and saxophonist Masego will also perform, as well as R&B singer Queen Naija and a slate of other up-and-coming artists.
