FESTIVALS & Community Events

This year’s event was made even more successful by the presence of your group. I want to particularly thank you for your professional handling of the logistics of playing in a crowded space with a particularly exuberant crowd.

— George Thurlow, Publisher
Santa Barbara Independent

Area 51 has ignited many festival stages. They have been a top choice of many Festival-Coordinators for their ability get everyone up dancing. Area 51 knows what to do with a big stage! Their energy, enthusiasm, and lively stage show are infectious. They create a mood of celebration and memories that last a lifetime.

The band has headlined Santa Barbara’s Summer Solstice Celebration’s main-stage in Alemeda Park for over ten years, becoming one of Santa Barbara’s most cherished traditions.

Thank you for making a hot day even hotter. Area 51 sure can set a stage afire!

— Steven Lovelace, Artistic Director,
