One of the West Coast’s biggest annual R&B events, Sacramento’s Sol Blume Festival, has been postponed.

On Saturday, event organizers announced that due to damage from winter storms that flooded Sacramento’s Discovery Park, the event, originally scheduled for May 3–5, will be postponed until the weekend of August 15–17, 2025.

This is the second year in a row the festival has changed dates due to issues with flooding in the park. Sol Blume officials announced that in an effort to avoid future flooding, the festival’s dates will move to the late summer for the foreseeable future.

The postponement caused a gut-punch for fans looking forward to seeing this year’s headliners of SZA, Snoh Aalegra and Kaytraminé, a duo comprised of lyricist Aminé and producer Kaytranada. Other artists scheduled to perform at the three-day weekend festival also included PARTYNEXTDOOR and Ari Lennox, as well as SiR, PinkPantheress, and Sacramento’s Nate Curry.

Tickets for the postponed 2024 featival will be honored at the 2025 festival, event organizers announced. Weekend pass holders who chose to retain their tickets will automatically receive upgrades to the next higher tier: GA passes will be upgraded to GA+ passes, GA+ passes to VIP passes, and VIP passes to Returnable VIP passes. (Returnable VIP pass holders will receive a $100 voucher for 2025 merch and concessions.)


The festival is also offering refunds for the 2024 festival. Fans looking to request a refund will have until May 17 to do so.
