Ever since it started two years ago, Music Tastes Good (MTG) has been the culinary music festival in Southern California. Although there are many festivals that specialize in food and others that focus on their musical line-ups, MTG is the only place that seamlessly blends the two. With a Taste Tent that is dedicated to showcasing various cuisines and demonstrations, and two stages dedicated exclusively to music (one which rotates!), MTG promises a perfectly curated line-up that is eclectic enough that you are bound to find at least one thing that you like. For its third year, MTG has booked New Order, Janelle Monae, and James Blake to headline, but there are so many artists that we’re excited for so we’ve compiled a playlist to make it easier for you! (We’ve even put it chronologically!)
