Third annual Ridgecrest Music Fest approaches

Third annual Ridgecrest  Music Fest approachesMeloMania Entertainment’s third annual Ridgcrest Music Festival will be on April 13 at the Desert Empire Fairgrounds. All proceeds will be donated to the Monroe and Murray Middle School orchestra programs.

The festival will feature live music from all-local groups from 11 a.m. to midnight. Local bands Love and War, Six Feet Over, Zeddicus, Treacherous Edges, Rayband, Homewood and the Burroughs High School Jazz Ensemble are headlining the concert and will be preceded by nearly a dozen other performers.

“Come on out, bring your tents and dancing shoes and enjoy a whole day and night of fun for the whole family,” said MeloMania founder Michelle Findley.

“And thank you for supporting local music and keeping music in public schools!”

Local vendors will have booths set up at the fairgrounds. Other activities include bounce houses, a dunk tank, fire spinners, a cake walk and more.

“We are still in need of sponsors and volunteers to help out,” said Findley. “This is all possible because of our amazing community.”
