Still flying mostly under-the-radar, the 2012 Sacramento Electronic Music Festival will feature a healthy showing of the Bay Area’s best electronic musicians including Raleigh Moncrief, San Francisco producer and multi-instrumentalist Giraffage, the electro-pop of James & Evander, and Oakland-based producer Yalls. Sounds like a pretty good excuse to get out of the city and enjoy some of that beautiful, hot Sacramento spring weather.

The festival takes place May 3, 4, and 5 at Harlow’s and Momo Lounge and is 21+. Tickets are available at While the full lineup has yet to be confirmed, keep checking the event’s Facebook page for more band announcements as we get closer to the date.
